Description

Weave’s security program is built to earn and maintain the trust of Weave’s customers, detect (and gracefully respond to) security incidents, and protect Weave against attacks. Weave is seeking to hire an experienced Senior Security Engineer to lead Weave’s security engineering and security operations programs, reporting directly to Weave’s Chief Information Security Officer.

Weave’s Senior Security Engineer will--in partnership with all of Weave’s technology and engineering teams throughout the company--develop, execute, and operate a scalable and effective security engineering and operations program. In this role, the Senior Security Engineer will evaluate, deploy, and operate security technology to identify incidents, instances of non-compliance with good security practices for cloud providers, workstation configurations, server configurations, and container use. 

The right candidate will have experience building relationships of trust with technical team members, experience deploying, tuning, and reviewing output produced by security tools. They must understand their role in identifying risks, mitigating risks, and protecting the customer experience against threats that might compromise the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of customer data.

  • Holding team members accountable to timelines for mitigating identified security risks at all layers of the technology stack.
  • Engaging with third party penetration testing organizations to facilitate effective security tests against Weave and its products.
  • “Spidering” the organization--turning over rocks to identify untreated security risks. 
  • Providing training to team members to build confidence in securely operating our technology.
  • Enhancing the awareness in good security practices throughout the organization.
  • Acting as the resident security subject matter expert for all team members to engage for advice and guidance.
  • Working closely with technology operations team members to deliver secure experiences to our customers.
  • Defining measurable outcomes and maintaining focus on those outcomes throughout the execution of the security roadmap.

What we are looking for:

  • A deep understanding of cloud, container, system, workstation, and network security practices.
  • The demonstrative capability to do the responsibilities described above.

  • A track record of achievements in your past roles and companies.
  • Demonstrated history of securing SaaS products.
  • Ability to remove ambiguity and distill what matters and what doesn’t.
  • A sense of humor and ability to have fun while working hard! 

Requirements/Qualifications:

  • Have 8+ years experience as a full-time security engineer.
  • Possess willingness to go “Mr. Robot” on all Weave systems, processes, and organizations to help identify meaningful and exploitable risks.
  • Demonstrate strong integrity so as to not compromise the trust of Weave customers.
  • Ability to operate security tools to identify, assess, prioritize, remediate, and monitor the security of Weave systems.
