Senior Infrastructure Security Engineer at Twitter
San Francisco, CA, US

The Information Security (InfoSec) is a team of security engineers and security-focused software engineers helping ensure Twitter builds and maintains secure systems and software. We collaborate with other teams, develop tooling, advocate for the security of our users, and train engineers throughout the SDLC to ensure security is prioritized at each step of development.

What You'll Do

As a Security Engineer, you'll join a team of engineers working to reduce security risk across the company. We work collaboratively with other teams to identify risks with security impact to the company, communicate that impact to teams and management, and engineer solutions. We strive to identify recurring classes of security problems, find the underlying cause(s), and develop generalized solutions. We continually advocate for the protection of our users and teach security to engineers to empower their own efforts.

Who You Are

As a Senior Infrastructure Security Engineer, you will have both security expertise and systems engineering experience. You will have explored the trade-offs necessary for large decisions, and balancing security and team productivity. You will have modeled and identified potential risks in designs, configuration, code, or in deployed systems. You have worked with both technical and non-technical teams. You recognize that the success of building effective security solutions requires interpersonal skills just as much as technical skills. You will have experience trading the perfect solution eventually for a better solution today. You will enjoy mentoring others both on the team and across the organization, and being mentored by others. Finally, you’ll enjoy advocating security by writing, giving talks, or hosting educational sessions for developers.

    Undergraduate degree or equivalent (CS, engineering, social sciences, arts, etc. are all fine)
    5 or more years of relevant experience (other jobs, grad school, etc) in information security including topics such as infrastructure security, threat hunting and analysis, pentesting, vulnerability management, or security research.
