The mission of Yieldstreet’s Cybersecurity Team is to secure our services, help developers build secure code, and help build secure environments for our employees. We are enablers who make it easier for engineers and product stakeholders to create secure features as well as prevent and remediate vulnerabilities in our technology platform. As the Cloud Security Architect, you will own the end to end security design of our Cloud Infrastructure, Applications, and IT footprint.

How To Apply:

When sending your application, tell us about yourself, your crown achievements, your failures and your learnings and how you think they can fit here at YieldStreet. Use some of the examples of what you might do in the description of the role and walk us through some of the sample solutions.

Put the “sec” in DevSecOps

  • Improve our development pipeline with new automations (SAST, DAST, CSA, SCA).
  • Work with software engineering to design resilient applications with security and privacy in mind as early as the process allows.
  • Develop and provide application and infrastructure security training to the engineering organization.

Build a Secure Development Sandbox

  • Utilize infrastructure management tooling (Ansible / Terraform / Packer) to deploy security hardened configurations in a cloud native application.
  • Orchestrate security posture checks on all new infrastructure deployments.
  • Scale proactive security controls to new environments (e.g. New Products, Novel Architectures).

Defend Against Bad Actors

  • Deploy vulnerability management tools across multi-cloud and on-premise workstations to detect vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations
  • Deploy Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions focusing on PII and PCI related data that may be in SaaS applications (e.g. GSuite, SalesForce, Box, Slack) and consider additional DLP strategies
  • Work with the IT team to improve our Zero-Trust access implementation
  • Have a lead participating role in mitigating security incidents

Create the Team You Want to Lead

  • Build and manage a team of security engineers and analysts to deliver, monitor, and maintain the above security solutions.

About You:

On the Security Operations Team, we are the defenders against bad actors, insecure software configurations, and insider privilege misuse. We use threat modeling to assess the security impacts of change on our systems and our products.

In most organizations, cybersecurity is seen as a gatekeeper. At Yieldstreet, we are enablers of secure innovation; creating training to develop products with secure coding practices in mind, providing architectural guidance to ensure the privacy and security of our investor data, and developing security guard rails in our multi-account cloud footprint to enable product engineers to try new things without leaking data.

You are pragmatic and you understand that your decisions can impact stakeholder productivity and applications all the way up the stack. This also means you are willing to dump processes and procedures that are not productive and learn from those failures to create ones that do. 

Successful candidates will have a passion for building reliable and scalable distributed systems, a technical background, hands-on experience in developing cloud systems at scale, a solid understanding of architecture-based security issues, how to design enterprise systems for security, strong architectural threat modeling experience, and the ability to collaborate with others to drive initiatives forward. This role reports directly to the VP of Infrastructure and Security.

How Yieldstreet is Making a Difference: "These Types of Opportunities Didn't Exist Before"

An Insider's view of Yieldstreet

What are some social events your company does?

My favorite part of Yieldstreet is our camaraderie. It’s refreshing to be part of a team that likes spending time together vs bolting for the door as soon as the clock strikes 5. We do group workouts, host guest speakers, do team outings, and go for dinners at popular spots like Vandal, Lavo and Nobu.

Meg

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate across functional differences (your normal departmental divisions) and geographic distances. We not only share documentation about features and strategy, but also about the best spots to grab a bite, a drink, or to catch a show! Yieldstreet folks look out for each other, so our teams in Brazil, Argentina, Malta have followed suit.

Charlie

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown tremendously in the year and a half at Yieldstreet. I started as the only Product Manager on the team, and as we've scaled, I have had the opportunity to grow the product team to six people. I was recently promoted to Director and now have a wide-ranging set of responsibilities and the capability to impact company strategy.

Glenna

Director of Product Management

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I sit amongst the team, grab lunch with the team, go to happy hours with the team and that is why I feel like I'm always in the know with the challenges and successes of the team. Being accessible doesn't have to just be scheduled and I expect that my team will / can come to me at any time or any place to address whatever needs to be addressed.

Matt

Head of Credit Underwriting

How does your team reward individual success?

I knew code wasn’t the only place I could contribute. Within a year I was involved on projects across 4 teams, was promoted to senior engineer, and now lead the mobile dev team. Last quarter I received our coveted Impala award, exemplifying that quarter’s mission: focus and blitz. My worst day at YS has been better than my best at any other job.

Senior Software Engineer
