At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. Unfortunately, most product managers, analysts, and marketers spend too much time searching for the data they need, while engineers are stuck integrating the tools they want to use. Segmentstandardizes and streamlines data infrastructure with a single platform that collects, unifies, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. That way, our customers can focus on building amazing products and personalized messages for their customers, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to power the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market.
The Security team at Segment is building a comprehensive security program in order to protect our customer’s data. We work with different organizations across the company to ensure our security practices and controls are constantly improving. In order to keep our engineers as productive and happy as can be, we need those controls, processes and tools to be lightweight and easy to navigate to help us carefully limit AWS and GCP infrastructure. This is a top-tier business problem that you as a Cloud Security Engineer at Segment could dig into right away. Security is the most important thing happening in engineering, and will always have strong support and high internal visibility by company leadership.
Who we are:
We’re a small team of experienced security engineers with diverse technical and non-technical backgrounds. We’re a passionate group of individuals who enjoy challenging traditional, prescriptive security techniques of the past and adapting or creating them to work with Segment’s modern development technologies and practices. We talk about our methods and accomplishments in public blogs, at conferences, and in presentations. If you want to be this kind of security person and work with a team that's like you to create innovative security solutions for distributed systems and architecture, we'd love to hear about your approach and introduce you to our team.
A little more about our team:
We talked about monitoring your ephemeral infrastructure with osquery at QueryCon
We showcased the importance of making security tooling more usable by demoing our OWASP ZAP contributions at Appsec USA
We discussed our overall approach to our security engineering program at LASCON

Segment is a fast-growing startup building a platform for collecting customer data. We provide a single API to track customer data across multiple devices and channels, and send it to third-party tools, internal systems, or a SQL database with the flip of a switch. Segment eliminates the need to write code to integrate new tools, which saves time and removes dependencies across teammates. By consolidating tracking to one API, Segment sends consistent, complete data to every tool and database where companies need to use it.
Segment is small, so everyone has a huge impact. With just a handful of people, we’re already processing billions of API calls every month. We love open sourcing our code and writing down everything we’ve learned. If you want to make an impact, and are excited about how data can change organizations, we want you.
