What you'll do

The security operations team collaborates with all parts of the security organization, helping the department operate smoothly and efficiently. This growing team, based in our Lisbon office, works with the product security, infrastructure security, Detection and Response, Governance Risk & Compliance, and Strategic Programs teams to ensure all of the tooling, software, and services necessary for a security team are operating efficiently, kept up to date, and providing value to the organization. 

A security operations engineer’s work includes triaging incoming reports from various programs (Incident Response, Vulnerability Management, Bug Bounty, Vendor Compliance), managing and configuring automated tooling (network scanners, code scanners, fuzzers, etc.), deploying changes with configuration management, or building automations for the team's processes. 

Examples of desirable skills, knowledge and experience

Security operations engineers take part in a wide variety of tasks and projects across the broader security team. One individual is not expected to know everything, but a working knowledge in one or more of the following areas is required: 

  • Bug bounty systems, including triage, validation, and impact assessment
  • Vulnerability report validation, criticality scoring, triage, and follow up as required
  • Automated scanner configuration and report triage and validation
  • Incident response, including triage and investigation of security incidents
  • Workflow automation with tools like Jira
  • Scripting experience (Bash, Python, Golang)

We are also looking for experienced security operations engineers with experience in the following areas:

  • Advanced scripting experience (Bash, Python, Golang)
  • DevOps and configuration management with tools like Terraform, Ansible, etc.
  • Security testing web-based applications

The successful candidate will be self-motivated and results-driven, able to work independently and to collaborate with other teams, and capable of working in a fast-paced, high-volume environment.

What Makes Cloudflare Special?

We’re not just a highly ambitious, large-scale technology company. We’re a highly ambitious, large-scale technology company with a soul. Fundamental to our mission to help build a better Internet is protecting the free and open Internet.

Project Galileo: We equip politically and artistically important organizations and journalists with powerful tools to defend themselves against attacks that would otherwise censor their work, technology already used by Cloudflare’s enterprise customers--at no cost.

Athenian Project: We created Athenian Project to ensure that state and local governments have the highest level of protection and reliability for free, so that their constituents have access to election information and voter registration.

Path Forward Partnership: Since 2016, we have partnered with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization, to create 16-week positions for mid-career professionals who want to get back to the workplace after taking time off to care for a child, parent, or loved one.

1.1.1.1: We released 1.1.1.1 to help fix the foundation of the Internet by building a faster, more secure and privacy-centric public DNS resolver. This is available publicly for everyone to use - it is the first consumer-focused service Cloudflare has ever released. Here’s the deal - we don’t store client IP addresses never, ever. We will continue to abide by our privacy commitment and ensure that no user data is sold to advertisers or used to target consumers.
