Security EngineerWe're currently seeking a security engineer to devise and implement effective methods in attack detection and attack surface reduction.
About the Job
This is a hands-on position 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. Additionally, network security engineers should have a solid understanding of networking protocols and operations engineering (specifically Linux and OS X.)
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. Additionally, you should have a solid understanding of modern web application architecture, TCP/IP, HTTP, and standard network and system security technologies. Finally, you must reject the idea of security being a blocker, and enjoy collaborating with colleagues across teams to ship projects securely.
About the Engineering 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. Our current systems run PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Solr/Lucene, Postgres, MySQL, and more. Check out our Engineering blog: http://codeascraft.etsy.com/
Etsy is the marketplace we make together. We have 20 million members in over 200 countries. In 2012, our sellers grossed more than $850 million in sales. Our mission is to reimagine commerce to build a more fulfilling and lasting world.
Our offices are like this http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2010/09/the-office-matters.html and this http://www.officesnapshots.com/2010/10/11/etsy-offices/. We're empowered and expected to be ourselves, share our ideas and figure out what we can each do to keep Etsy evolving. We have full company-paid benefits, including family and domestic partner benefits, humane working hours, couches, quiet spaces, lunch twice a week and handmade desks.
We're growing rapidly and are well-funded with a proven business model and established revenue to help us continue serving our community.
As you’ve probably guessed, Etsy is a place that values individuality and variety. We don’t want you to be like everyone else, we don’t even want you to be like us—we want you to be like you! So write to us, in your own human voice, and tell us what you’re all about. What gets you up in the morning? What excites you? What throws your whole day off and causes you to pull your hair out?
If you have a presence on the web that we can easily access (blog, twitter, facebook, rap sheet), contribute to an open source project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides designing beautiful, functional websites, that means something to us, and we would love to hear about it when you write!
