Are you seeking a dynamic position in security where you will positively impact both your peers and Mailchimp customers? If so, you might be the right person to fill a Senior Security Operations Engineer role on our team. We have a security-positive culture and invest significant time and energy into our security program; as the company continues to grow, those efforts require additional coordination and alignment with company strategy.

This role consists of building and managing tools to detect and respond to security issues, staying up to date with the latest security vulnerabilities, and participating in incident response measures.

You should be an inclusive, collaborative individual, have a keen eye for detail, and a knack for solving difficult problems. If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.

 

What you’ll do here:

  • Build and improve tooling for identifying and tracking suspicious behavior within the Mailchimp application stack
  • Collaborate with other engineers and teams to identify anomalous user behavior and develop alerts for suspicious tactics, techniques, and procedures
  • Work with the larger Security team on development initiatives while also supporting compliance and audit efforts
  • Discover, assess risk, and track mitigation of vulnerabilities in application packages and the supporting infrastructure
  • Participate in an on-call rotation for security incidents and assist in incident response processes

 

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • Familiarity with security information and event management platforms (SIEM)
  • You have reviewed security architectures and/or assisted teams for designing secure systems in a cloud environment (Google, Amazon or Azure) or on-prem
  • You have experience with security incident response
  • You have scripting experience in Python or Bash
