About You

You have deep cloud infrastructure security experience. Keeping the cloud resources that support our core Zapier application secure is at the heart of this role.
Zapier is a SaaS product, so experience building software and managing cloud infrastructure under a similar model is a must.

Working in a SOC2 and/or ISO27001 or HIPAA/HITRUST compliant environment is a plus.

You have worked with teams before on large Python, AWS, & Kubernetes projects. You’re also familiar with some common frameworks for languages like Django, Flask, or Rails. You've also worked extensively in cloud providers like AWS, GCE, or Azure and have strong experience with threat detection tooling on linux. 

You’re an excellent planner. You have managed complex cloud security projects with minimal guidance, to include planning, scheduling, and delivering of reports and other documentation. You have a solid vision on how to keep an ever evolving cloud environment secure.
Familiarity with the MITRE ATT&CK framework and how to utilize it for enhancing the security of a cloud environment is a big plus.

You love to set direction. You love to work with others, to give and take feedback and set together a vision to raise the security maturity.

You are friendly and patient, welcoming, considerate, and respectful. Learn more about these attributes in our code of conduct.


Things You Might Do

Zapier is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Define the Cloud Security strategy to measure and further strengthen the security our environment working with the Head of Security and the other Cloud Security engineers
  • Build, own and drive a cloud security maturity program
  • This is also a hands-on role, so you'll write some python and work within ansible, terraform, AWS and more.
  • Identify where we can add more layers of defense in depth and implement them.
  • Build internal tooling to ensure safe data access patterns for Zapier employees.
  • Locating weak points across Zapier and strengthening them.
  • As a part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best possible experience with Zapier.
