Who We Are:

Materialize is the streaming SQL database company that makes it easy for any developer or analyst to understand streaming data, answer complex questions and build intelligent applications using standard technology. Whether it’s delivering personalized experiences, accurately identifying fraud, building predictive AI, or discovering new business opportunities, the ability to run complex queries on multiple streams of data and keep their answers up to date is critical to making better decisions about the changing world around us.

We are focused on bottom-up developer adoption, our core software is free to use and source available, our business model is a cloud product that handles management of Materialize and lets businesses focus on building value. We have a vibrant developer community on Slack and as much as possible we work in public on GitHub.


The Materialize team includes engineers who were early employees of Cockroach Labs, Ververica, and Stripe. Our work builds on top of Timely Dataflow and Differential Dataflow, both created by our co-founder Frank McSherry, a world-leading computer scientist with decades of award-winning research in all aspects of data.

Investors:

Kleiner Perkins, Redpoint Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners.

About the Role:

We are looking for the first Cloud Security Engineer hire at Materialize with a specific focus on our Cloud SaaS product.
 
The role will require you to build the systems, tools and processes to ensure that our customers data is protected at all times. You'll also be responsible for general security and compliance of all production systems in the cloud. Additionally, you will be part of the Cloud Engineering team but will work closely with Product, Engineering and Sales team in a cross-functional role to respectively design, build and educate our customers and prospects as to the highest security standards.
 
Materialize is deployed on top of streaming message queues, like Kafka, and allows users to specify arbitrary SQL views on top of their queues and query those views instantly. Stream processing software like Kafka has greatly improved the end-to-end latency of moving messages around in real time, but today there's no good solution for making use of that data easily. Materialize brings the user-facing simplicity of SQL views - for arbitrary SQL queries, not just some SQL-inspired minimal language - to the streaming data ecosystem
 

Responsibilities: 

  • As part of the engineering team, contribute to our cloud infrastructure by writing infrastructure-as-code
  • Recommend and setup threat detection and monitoring services for our cloud environment
  • Automate vulnerability discovery in our cloud environment
  • Support product development by recommending and implementing security features, and then contributing directly to the codebase to implement those features
  • Speak to customers to identify security requirements that map to product features
  • Setup IAM and access management in AWS and other tools
  • Communicate technical concepts and issues to the non-technical
  • Assist in building out the security team; interviewing
  • Represent overall product security in discussions with prospective and current customers

About You:

  • Prior experience as a security engineer or comparable title
  • Experience in securing production cloud infrastructure and applications (managing secrets, securing CI/CD pipeline, authorization/authentication protocols, Web Application Firewalls, etc)
  • Experience in using centralized logging and monitoring systems for investigation and audits (CloudWatch, Honeycomb, Grafana, NewRelic, etc)
  • Experience writing Infrastructure-as-Code. We use Pulumi, but Pulumi experience isn’t required; Terraform, CloudFormation, or anything else is fine (as long as you’re willing to learn Pulumi once you start)
  • Experience with scripting and automation (Python, JavaScript, etc)
  • Experience with AWS and AWS services

Bonus Points:

  • Familiar with compliance standards (SOC 2, NIST, PCI DSS, etc)
  • Familiar with privacy standards (GDPR, CCPA, HIPPA, etc.)
  • Experience programming in Rust and understanding of what vulnerabilities are (and are not) addressed by Rust.
  • Experience in small to mid startups

We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to develop the exceptional product we are building. Our dynamic team has incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity employer.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
