We aim to constantly improve the security posture of our organization by iterating on our tooling and process.
The Spotify Security team is looking to advance our in-house threat detection and response capabilities.

  • You will mature our capabilities to proactively identify security threats and develop detections.

  • You like rapidly prioritizing work based on business needs and assessing risks.
  • You like working in a flexible environment where you can wear many hats.
  • You have at least 3 - 5 years experience with security detection engineering and response.
