WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We’re looking for a Senior Cloud Security Engineer to join our growing team in New York! The Security team at Braze is charged with the overall security of the entirety of mission-critical applications and the platforms they run on. We are a modern, cloud-first, SaaS application company with no classical “legacy” systems. We are operating at a very large scale and are constantly expanding our mature application stack. Due to the nature of our business, we have one of the most unique and exciting threat profiles in the private sector, defending a large amount of critical infrastructure depended on by our over 2 billion active users.

WHAT YOU'LL DO

As a Security Engineer at Braze you will work on a diverse set of projects, tasks, and problems focused around:

  • Working with the Head of Security, DevOps team, and CTO to design and implement network and application security controls.
  • Understanding complex, large scale production applications’ security needs and implementing them.
  • Improving secure engineering practices in the engineering organization.
  • Protecting Braze customer and employee data.
  • Conducting regular security and risk assessments of Braze infrastructure.
  • Assisting Braze's Sales and Legal departments with business-related security evaluations.

  • Interacting directly with the security community regarding vulnerabilities and threat intelligence.
  • Effectively operating within the confines of scale to deploy customized and realistically effective solutions to protect Braze-specific applications and systems.
  • Working with our compliance and privacy teams to ensure client expectations are met and exceeded.
WHO YOU ARE

You are a person who can enjoy translating complex attack vectors into plain English and show/teach people how to mitigate them. You enjoy trying to break things in order to make them better and more secure, and you are always keeping up with the forefront of security research and incorporating that research into your toolset.

As a Senior Security Engineer at Braze, you will be expected to have the following capabilities:

  • 4+ years of experience working in a defensive information security capacity.
  • A deep history of implementation and operation of security tooling.
  • A track record of passion for independent security research.
  • Ability to conduct lightweight offensive/discovery operations on your own or with a team.
  • Ability to lead the coordination of resolution on a wide range of incidents.
  • Understanding of Amazon Web Services and Azure’s native security controls.
  • History of working with production containerization and orchestration tooling/workflows.
  • Light knowledge of programming and scripting languages for the purpose of automation.
  • Excellent communication skills with a history of successfully dealing with customers internally or externally.
  • OSCP/EE may help, CEH may not.

WHAT WE OFFER

  • Competitive compensation that includes equity
  • Flexible time off policy to balance your work and life, including paid parental leave
  • Free daily lunch in the office, including snacks and beverages

An Insider's view of Braze

What are some social events your company does?

Every month, a different department hosts a social event - this provides a great opportunity to get to know and collaborate with people across teams. In addition to broader team social events, we also host a quarterly team outing where we do team building activities and socialize outside the office. It’s really fun!

Zana

Business Development Manager, East

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work closely with teams from across marketing, as well as from a variety of different departments—from customer success to product—to inform the content we create. Thankfully, the people at Braze aren’t just really smart; they’re also thoughtful and kind. That makes collaboration easier and something I look forward to every day.

Todd

Managing Editor, Content Marketing

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At Braze, we refer to work-life balance as work-life harmony -- and we strongly value it. Our flexible paid-time-off policy gives team members the ability to take time off in the way that suits them best.
