Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Why and Where

Twilio is enabling the future of customer engagement. As a member of the Cybersecurity Leadership Team, the Field Security Engineer will facilitate security conversations with our most important, strategic, and complex customers. They will use security expertise and knowledge of the Twilio platforms to help our customers securely deploy applications that leverage our suite of products. Additionally, they will develop a deep understanding of Twilio’s security posture and help drive customer-focused improvements across the business.

The Lead Field Security Engineer will be an integral part of the technical pre-sales relationship and ongoing security communications and contacts with customers. They may be asked to propose technical architectures, demonstrate features of the platform, and guide customers through security incidents. They build customer trust in Twilio solutions, which results in continued customer success.

This Lead consultant role is both highly technical and a skilled relationship builder. You are comfortable showing an engaging communications experience to a CEO or sketching out an API flow on a whiteboard with customer software engineers. You understand the complexities of security compliance and can talk to why we would implement one specific control over another.


Twilio is looking for a security expert who lives the Twilo Magic and has a strong desire to work in a customer-facing role. This is not a “traditional” assignment so your path to it is probably not traditional. But we think you may have some of these past experiences:

  • Pre-sales engineering for a complex technology company
  • Technical customer support and implementation at a SaaS company 
  • Technology risk consulting, lawyering, or security incident response
  • Previous experience in Telecom, Contact Center, Mobile, IoT, and/or Fraud.
  • Information security management, leadership, or awareness program management
  • Software development (preferably security related) in some of these languages:
    • backend (Java, C#, Node.js, Python, PHP)
    • web development (JavaScript, HTML/CSS, frontend frameworks - React, Vue.js, Angular)
    • Experience building with REST APIs
    • Cloud or data center infrastructure management


As a Lead Field Security Engineer, you will live the Twilio Magic values:

  • DRAW THE OWL: Present creative new solutions that enable and inspire customers to security innovate on Twilio’s platforms  
  • WEAR THE CUSTOMER SHOES: Build and present Twilio product demos that showcase a deep understanding of our customer’s security challenges and how Twilio can meet them
  • DON’T SETTLE: Keep asking probing questions and never stop learning new products and new technologies
  • EMPOWER OTHERS: Work alongside Twilio team mates through the pre-sales process and drive improvements through cross-functional initiatives within Twilio
  • BE BOLD: Don’t be afraid to take a big idea and make it reality


Twilio customers often share common business challenges, but rarely share the same implementation requirements. Each company is unique when it comes to process, technology stacks, and skill. This Engineer will be called on to help demonstrate the more secure way to use Twilio products to achieve (and often exceed) the customers’ goals.
