As a remote-first organization, our employees, like our customers, are based around the world.

We want people who are passionate about making the internet a safer place for everyone.

We are looking for a creative engineer to solve high-scale security problems. Reporting to the Manager of Security Engineering, the Security Software Engineer will find innovative ways to bring security-focused products and services to our internal engineering teams, and our customers.

Our customers trust us with their data and operations, and we take that responsibility seriously. Security at DO means solving incredibly complex problems at a high-scale that have real impact for our customers, our products, and for the larger internet community.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Build and maintain security platforms and services, for both internal and external use.
  • Develop and deploy security capabilities at scale, using languages such as Go and Ruby, and tools such as Kubernetes, Docker, and Chef.
  • Research and design automated approaches to reducing the risk of fraud, abuse, and misuse of the DigitalOcean products and services.
  • Partner with engineering teams to make sure that we deliver an excellent and secure workflow spanning development, deployment, and production monitoring.
  • Design customer-impacting security applications and services that advance DigitalOcean’s ability to help our customers improve their security posture.
  • Work with product and engineering teams to design and implement secure architectures.
  • Design and build internal tools that enable our Security Operations Center to do more, faster.
  • Consistently improve security as the platform scales, driving continuous improvement through data collection and correlation, being mindful that security should be an efficiency enabler for the business - not an obstacle.

What You'll Add to DigitalOcean:

  • Software engineering experience (you can write robust code with good test coverage and can point to specific examples of projects you’ve successfully delivered in the past) and expertise with at least one programming language.
  • A high degree of curiosity, with a desire to understand a problem deeply.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills (you can explain your thought process and you write good documentation.)
  • Interest in security and a desire to build secure by default services and applications
