Senior Security Developer Tumblr
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Tumblr is hiring a security engineering lead to own the security picture for Tumblr, driving security improvements without compromising Tumblr?s ability to move quickly.
What You?ll Do:
Own the security story for Tumblr from end to end. Prioritize and execute on projects to improve this.
Improve security without slowing down Tumblr?s pace of iteration; imagine you have two hours a year to have Tumblr employees spend on security stuff (yeah, including their two-factor device for 10 seconds a day), how would you spend it? One hour? Five hours?
Track & tighten which credentials can get you to which aspects of the service, and which assets matter; build a system for managing these credentials.
Audit and alter code and architectures to make them more robust and secure.
Improve application-level security through mitigating XSS, CSRF, clickjacking, and other client-side attacks.
Verify incoming security reports and vet them for urgency and exposure.
Build tools that audit/scan for known problems or attack vectors, build dashboards that show the state of the system, chase down ?weird? things that look like they might be early signs of attack.
Keep up with the industry, actively share information with other startups (or otherwise) that attract the same kind of threats as Tumblr, and expect the same from them.
Wear a white hat at all times.
Yeah, you?re going to build software. And you?re going to deploy and integrate with existing systems. You?re going to write documents and policy. 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?ve got a CS degree or similar, and an excellent working knowledge of the security space. Writing software from scratch doesn?t scare you, nor does learning new languages.
You?ve run some (Linux or -nix) servers, you?ve deployed sophisticated PAM or OAuth or ssh or VPN installations.
You?ve thought about the (online) security of an organization from end to end.
You?ve written (or fixed) web-application security code.
Smarts, humility, and equal willingness to learn and teach.
A sense of ownership, initiative, and drive.
