BlockFi is looking for a Lead Security Engineer to join our Cyber Defense team
About the Team:
At BlockFi, our Security Team works across the entire spectrum of technologies and products that power our business, protecting over $3B in value.
This role is full-time remote, even after COVID. The Security Team is largely remote, working across timezones and prides itself on being solutions-focused. While facing incredibly complex threats in an ever-change security landscape, BlockFi has continued to thrive and needs the right tools built by passionate and energetic people.
About the Role:
As a Senior Security Engineer, you’ll be a part of a globally distributed Security team tackling challenging problems at scale. This role will primarily focus on maturing and scaling our cloud security efforts. You will be exposed to a wide range of challenges, from securing service deployments and account permissions, to improving the cloud monitoring and visibility capabilities of our Cyber Defense team. A successful candidate for this role will not only help identify areas for improvement in BlockFi’s cloud security posture, but also take initiative to design mitigations and improvements that address gaps in a systematic way.
Much of what we need, needs to be built and much of what we have needs to be refined. You will work across many teams including infrastructure, engineering, product, and across multiple streams. We’re looking for someone that has deep technical expertise and experience in AWS infrastructure and configuration, with a deep understanding of security paradigms as they apply to cloud environments.
