* Work with engineering and operations teams to implement threat detection signals, deploy new tooling, and improve response capabilities.
* Analyze security data and report on threats and incidents across various platforms and environments.
* Mentor team members, junior and senior, in state-of-the-art incident response practices
* Research and design ways to achieve risk reduction objectives in creative ways, including expanding our current tool stack where appropriate
* Assist with security incidents that the company may face in alignment with our response processes
* Assess risk arising from third-parties, vendors and partners in our ecosystem and design controls to mitigate such risks
* Document security processes and standards.

Key Qualifications:

* 8+ years of experience with security engineering in e-commerce, internet, or social networking settings

* Advanced programming abilities in Python or similar language
* Knowledge of web application security, browser security models, and application security vulnerabilities such as the OWASP Top Ten

* Experience working with multiple stakeholders such as engineering/operations teams, internal business units, external incident response teams, and law enforcement throughout the incident lifecycle.
* Strong verbal and written communication skills, solid team player, with demonstrated abilities in analysis and problem-solving

Nice To Have:
