As a Senior Security Engineer at Signifyd you will work to control and improve security outcomes across the company. You will operate at the front line of risk, identifying vulnerabilities and threats, and collaborate cross-functionally across the organization to implement defenses.

As a core member of our security team, you will have latitude to further define and mature our appsec capabilities. You will work directly with software developers as the voice of security, where you will guide our security architecture and ensure consistent and effective mediation of risks.

You will also own one or more foundational security projects, and work with project managers and engineers to successfully execute on the software specifications you help develop.

Finally, you will work to increase our visibility into data, infrastructure, entitlements and logs; you will develop and improve detections for things that matter within our SIEM and other systems, and make sure our infrastructure is always-on and customer data stays secure.

About you

You are passionate about information security and desire to solve security problems at scale. You live and breathe the CIA Triad, or maybe prefer the Parkerian Hexad. You have experience building software, breaking it, or both.

Job Responsibilities

  • Execute secure design reviews for engineering projects to improve our ability to prevent problems before code is deployed, and ensure security by design
  • Prioritize, specify and guide foundational security projects within engineering (e.g., secrets management, vulnerability management, logging and alerting), and work with project managers and engineers to successfully execute
  • Increase visibility of infrastructure, data, entitlements and activity, and improve our ability to detect those things that cause risks and effectively respond to them
  • Consult to colleagues as an advocate for security in the organization
  • Support successful compliance audits
  • Investigate security alerts and incidents, and research vulnerabilities

Job Experience Requirements

Core requirements:

  • You can easily float from builder to breaker and know how to engage with both tribes
  • You know a variety of security controls to reach for to control risk, and have implemented these in the past
  • You know a thing or two about cloud security, and have deployed infrastructure yourself using IaC
  • You have previously balanced security concerns with other priorities in an engineering team and know when to compromise
  • You’re not afraid of a $ or # prompt and your mental toolbox has cool CLI tools in it
  • You are not afraid of a Beyondcorp world, and have thoughts on how to secure it
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to present technical information to a variety of audiences

Any of these would be a plus:

  • Security certifications
  • Knowledge of one or more compliance or security control frameworks, especially SOC 2, ISO 27001 and/or PCI-DSS

  • 4-day workweek
