About the Role

  • Defend Etsy’s networks and infrastructure by hardening vulnerabilities, implementing alerting systems, and performing anomaly analysis.  
  • You’re a skilled builder whose approach to developing software is informed by a talent for breaking it; versed in real world attack techniques, you channel black hat savvy into pragmatic security measures.
  • Complementing these core strengths, you’re a creative collaborator eager to brainstorm and troubleshoot with teammates across the organization.

About You

  • You love programming and building solid, tested, reliable things over just breaking things for the lulz.
  • You have a desire to design and implement attack detection technologies to help protect network boundaries and systems.
  • You're prone to taking things apart to see how they work (regardless of whether there is left over screws at the end).
  • You prefer working on a great team on great things, rather than burning the midnight oil at home.
  • You have a professional understanding of modern web application architecture, TCP/IP, HTTP, and standard network and system security technologies.
  • You have a solid working knowledge of operations engineering (specifically Linux and OS X).
  • You champion the idea of Security as an enabler, and enjoy collaborating with colleagues to architect and ship projects securely.
