This is a full-time position based in Brooklyn, NY.
About the Team
The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, good software and systems designs are works of art, and that the work we do is part of larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired makers who make Etsy such a wondrous marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We also believe in the right tool for the job, not language-as-religion.

About the Job
This is a hands-on position tasked with network and infrastructure security. With projects focussed on instrumenting systems and networks to discover attackers from initial compromise through persistence mechanisms, lateral movement, and exfiltration. Security engineers should have thorough familiarity with techniques used by real world attackers and should be able to prioritize detection and attack surface reduction efforts based on this knowledge. For example, if the project of https://github.com/etsy/MIDAS was interesting to you, or you have ideas of how it could be done better, we?d love to hear from you.
Design and implement new approaches to compromise detection, from initial compromise through persistence and lateral movement.
Understand offensive techniques/tactics and be able to prioritize implementations accordingly.
Instrument and perform anomaly analysis of systems and networks.
Collaborate with colleagues across teams to architect & ship projects securely.
You enjoy designing and implementing effective attack detection technologies to help protect network boundaries and keep systems secure. You should firmly believe that the best defense is a good offense, and enjoy subverting security mechanisms in order to build a better mousetrap.
You will be successful in this role if you:
Have a solid understanding of modern web application architecture, TCP/IP, HTTP, and standard network and system security technologies.
Reject the idea of security being a blocker, and actively enjoy collaborating with colleagues across the entire engineering organisation.
Have a solid understanding of networking protocols and operations engineering (specifically Linux and OS X);
A strong desire to build things, not just break them.
If you're interested in joining the team, please send us your r-sum- and if you can, some small work samples. You won?t be surprised to hear, though, that we won?t consider them without a cover letter. Etsy is a place that values individuality and variety, so use your judgment and write to us in your own voice. If you practice a craft, curate a blog, or contribute to an open source project, we?d love to hear about it too.
