Transform your operations, and solve the complexities of digital information today with our innovative, customized AI solutions and enterprise AI platform.


We are driven by the belief that Artificial Intelligence is mankind’s greatest invention. It is the key to building a safer, more vibrant, transparent, and empowered society. We are determined to be an active contributor to shaping our future for the better. We care about the ethical implications of AI and the prosperity and well-being of all individuals, as well as the growth and continued successes of our employees, customers, and partners.

Veritone’s mission today is more important than ever. We’re here to democratize AI and enable every organization and every person with the power of AI. What started in 2014 with the idea of providing unified access to hundreds of cognitive engines through one common software infrastructure, evolved to the world’s first AI operating system, aiWARE, which orchestrates a diverse ecosystem of cognitive engines to power intelligent automation for both commercial and government organizations. As we progress, we will continue to move humans from “in” to “on” to “out of the loop” to help them accelerate workflows, save time and costs, and uncover new insights and opportunities.


The Senior Security Engineer (SSE) will help build and manage services that detect and automate the mitigation of cybersecurity threats across Veritone’s infrastructure. You’ll work with other engineers within and outside of the team to develop innovative security solutions at scale.

Building a strong security conscious culture, the SSE will help implement security programs, principles, tooling, and best practices in CI/CD pipelines, software and firmware, and deployed infrastructure and applications. 

The SSE will also be expected to respond to security incidents via the incident response program as well as perform initial triage for security bugs reported via our bug bounty program. The SSE will lead the effort in generating queries and alerts based on our ELK stack.


To be successful in this role you need to have a thorough understanding across varied security trends within the DevSecOps world and build implementation strategies and plans to keep us at the forefront of technology while solving daily challenges. The candidate will build and configure delivery environments supporting CI/CD tools, provide knowledge of container security tools, container orchestration, infrastructure-as-code (e.g., Ansible, Terraform/Terragrunt, CloudFormation), and have familiarity with modern CI/CD tooling and specifically how security integrates with these tools.
