About the team:

Robinhood’s Corporate Security team enables our workforce to execute with agility while not compromising security. To accomplish this, our Security Engineers focus on identifying the key risks, craft our security posture for our employees, and engineer control solutions to be applied at scale. Key areas of focus include endpoint security, network security, SaaS and 3rd party vendor security, identity governance, data protection controls, and more. Our approach is to implement & continuously validate strong controls through technical solutions & design reviews.

What you’ll do day-to-day:

Here are some examples of things our team focuses on:

  • Implement endpoint & mobile security controls and attestation tooling for a diverse fleet
  • Build secure access controls using modern-era tools and techniques (e.g. WebAuthn, SSH over HTTP, Ephemeral access)
  • Build security tools and processes using Python for workforce infrastructure protection, monitoring, and remediation
  • Utilize infrastructure management tooling (Puppet / Chef, Ansible, Salt, Terraform) to enable consistent hardening configs and code-driven security configurations in a multi-cloud, on-prem environment (e.g. GCP, Azure, AWS)
  • Deploy Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions focusing on PII and PCI-related data that may be in SaaS applications (e.g. Google Workspace, Salesforce, Box)
  • Service ownership of vulnerability management tools across multi-cloud and on-premise infrastructures to detect vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations
  • Help craft the overall security strategy for M&As from due diligence through post-close integration and scale proactive controls to new environments
  • Orchestrate security posture checks on all new infrastructure deployments

About you:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 7+ years of relevant industry experience in the Corporate Security domain (endpoint security, DLP, SaaS security, identity governance, etc)
