This team is responsible for building security analytics, curating threat intelligence, performing attack simulations and investigating, responding and providing awareness to potential security concerns. This is a unique challenge for a cyber professional interested in non-traditional security monitoring and response designed to function within a development operations framework.

  • Develop collaborative relationships across the entire organization at Stripe
  • Help the team develop and interface effectively with the rest of Stripe
  • Scale the policies and processes of the team to facilitate global impact
  • Be metrics driven in your approach across the board

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • 4+ years of relevant experience
  • A healthy skepticism for the status quo
  • Ability to drive concurrent projects and initiatives while managing operational responsibilities
  • An exemplary, user-focused communication style; emphasizing clarity, empathy and accuracy
  • Skill and credibility delivering operational work while maintaining a high bar for quality
  • A willingness to lead by example and participate in the work as necessary
  • Experience with a broad range of technologies including endpoint detection, network technologies, and AWS cloud services.
  • Ability to create a healthy work environment that's both supportive and challenging
  • A history of delivering projects through cross team collaboration and partnerships
  • Demonstrated success overseeing internal tool development and automation at scale
  • Extremely strong focus on compliance, security and risk awareness
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills (verbal and written)
  • Possess an empathetic, humble, customer-focused demeanor
