Security Operations Engineer Tumblr
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Tumblr is hiring a security engineer that makes things more secure and more seamless inside and out.
What You'll Do:
Improve the security of our production (datacenter) systems, doing innovative things with ssh, client-side certs, etc.
Ensure that Tumblr knows as much as possible, as quickly as possible about "interesting" security incidents, including catching novel attacks in early stages.
Build connections with other startups that attract the same kinds of threats as Tumblr.
Help Tumblr defend against everything from DDoS to APT to people trying to hijack accounts.
Verify reports of application-specific security vulnerabilities and assess whether we're exposed to newly published weaknesses in technologies we use (SSL, PHP, etc.).
Build security without compromising the ability of Tumblr employees to do their job: identify and deploy solutions that make things safer and easier.
Wear a white hat at all times. You're going to deploy and integrate existing systems, and push the boundaries of good security practices. You have both breadth and depth in the security space, and you care about security being as invisible as possible.
What We're Looking For:
You probably have some theoretical background like a CS degree, or have taught yourself a lot about cryptography.
You've run some (Linux or -nix) servers, you've deployed sophisticated PAM or OAuth or ssh or VPN installations.
You've deployed a couple of complex security management systems, e.g. certificate managment, single sign-on across many systems, pervasive Kerberos, etc.
You've done some scripting (shell, Ruby, Python, ?) and glued stuff together.
Smarts, humility, and equal willingness to learn and teach.
A sense of ownership, initiative, and drive.
