That’s where you come in.

As an infrastructure security architect, you’ll be trusted to enhance network and cloud monitoring infrastructure, provide guidance for usable infrastructure security, ensure that logical infrastructure security controls are manageable at our scale, and much more.

  • A track record of building collaborative relationships with stakeholders across many functions, with a focus on correctness, scalability and usability of distributed infrastructure.
  • Past experience developing usable security tools in a professional setting or open source, as well as an understanding of tools to automate the software development lifecycle

We'd love to see:

  • Experience with policy automation, ideally for one of desktop, backend or network infrastructure
  • Working knowledge of publisher/subscriber, message bus and distributed computing architectures such as Hadoop, Kafka, MQ, etc.
  • Experience with Container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes
  • A working understanding of network protocols and network visibility technologies, especially for the collection of flow information
  • Knowledge of virtualization technology and an ability to reason around modern threat models for cloud security (including forensics and/or incident response)

  • Working knowledge of large-scale data processing technology, and experience leveraging data to drive decision making
