Plastiq is seeking an IT Security Engineer to design, implement, and maintain security-related systems and processes across a broad spectrum of corporate applications, data, and infrastructure. Part hacker and part architect, you will wear a handful of hats: SaaS security expert, bot and automator author, and best-practice evangelist.
You will be the subject-matter expert for securing our corporate IT systems from an administrative and engineering standpoint, empowering Plastiq to efficiently and safely scale the business alongside its “perimeter-less” workforce. The end goal is an extensible, zero-trust approach to storing and accessing data across the entire IT systems portfolio.
The successful candidate for this role will be detail-oriented, security-obsessed, and familiar with the complexities of securing a cloud-first approach to corporate applications, data, and architecture. Plastiq is a largely remote-first work culture: the successful candidate will be self-motivated and driven, while working towards collaborative deliverables.
If the above sounds like you, Plastiq wants to help you find your inner G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time)!

Your Responsibilities

  • Design and implement best-practice security configurations across a broad-spectrum SaaS stack, including tools such as Google Workplace, Slack, Salesforce, Snowflake, etc.
  • Technical ownership of projects for meeting various security compliance frameworks (ISO 27001, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOX, etc.)
  • Work with product engineering to implement a high-capacity, secure access layer for both corporate and engineering resources.
  • Secure and monitor Mac+PC endpoints, SaaS applications, and corporate networks, including automating detection and remediation.
  • Contribute to company-wide information security and enforcement policies. 
  • Write technical documentation for internal and external audiences of varying technical expertise.
  • Work with compliance program staff to automate security compliance processes and reporting.

Your Minimum Experience Requirements

  • 5+ years of information systems administration or engineering, with a focus on security.
  • 2+ years of information security experience in a regulated environment.
  • Familiarity with vulnerability management, patching, and automating tools and workflows.
  • Knowledge of applied cryptography in PKI, TLS, VPN, key management, secure boot, encryption, etc.
  • General knowledge of corporate IT architecture, including Mac+PC endpoints, VPN, and SaaS administration.
  • Software development skills in Python (or similar languages) with popular databases.
  • Writing technical communications for internal and external audiences of varying technical knowledge.
  • Knowledge of security compliance frameworks (ISO 27001, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOX, etc.)
  • A team-player mindset in an individual-responsibility environment.
  • Hyper-focused attention to detail and context.
  • Experience managing security engineers/contractors is a plus.

Plastiq's Corporate Tech Stack

  • Plastiq’s corporate technology is powered entirely by SaaS and IaaS.
  • An endpoint-and-application-focused “perimeter-less” security model.
  • API-focused integrations between off-the-shelf applications.
