The CSIRT:Engineering team is responsible for building continuous security monitoring capabilities for Airbnb’s corporate and production environments. This spans cloud, workstations, mobile, and on-premises.
We are a team focused on precision, automation and innovation. Our engineering and infrastructure efforts follow best practices such as CI/CD, multi layered testing and performance monitoring. You won’t be maintaining someone else’s debt here.
What are examples of work that CSIRT engineers have done at Airbnb?
In the last two years, CSIRT:Engineering has built and open sourced detection tools based on cutting-edge AWS serverless offerings including AWS Lambda, Kinesis, SQS, and more. This includes StreamAlert, a real-time data analysis framework, and BinaryAlert, a real-time malware detection engine.
These frameworks embody a new way to collect and analyze many types of data, without the need to maintain servers. It also enables the team to scale rapidly without an increasingly high overhead. As a member of CSIRT:Engineering, you will be enabled to create new and effective tools like this to further the mission of our team and Airbnb.
