This job posting is over 30 days old, but the application is still open.

GitHub is looking for Security Engineers to join our Security Operations team. We are a hybrid team of traditional infrastructure engineers, site reliability engineers and security engineers, working together to create systems and tools that enable our fellow engineers to securely operate and scale the world's largest code hosting platform. As a member of this team, you will develop, implement, and maintain organization-wide capabilities such as secrets management, identity and access management, gateway access, secure provisioning, and more. You'll always be challenged to solve interesting and novel problems that have real impact on how the world builds software.

This role does not require an extensive security background or education level, provided you're eager to learn and passionate about security. This would be an excellent fit for someone currently working as a site reliability engineer or similar who wants to translate their skills to the security domain.

The team is highly distributed and you must thrive in an environment of remote work and asynchronous communication. You will be expected to have strong written and oral communication skills and be able to develop effective relationships with coworkers in locations around the globe.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop, implement, and maintain infrastructure security services.
  • Automate tasks by consuming and building APIs and developing self-service tools and frameworks.
  • Partner with teams across the organization (infrastructure, application engineering, data analytics, etc.) to ensure the security, availability and resilience of our infrastructure.
  • Use metrics and monitoring to ensure the security of our infrastructure.
  • Cultivate the open source projects developed by GitHub and build things you are proud to share.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Proficiency with the GNU/Linux operating system and shell scripting.
  • Proficiency in at least one high level language such as Ruby, Python, Golang, etc.
  • Experience with Amazon Web Services or a similar cloud provider.
  • Familiarity with configuration/orchestration management software such as Puppet, Chef, Ansible, or Salt.
  • A tenacious ability to diagnose and fix security, performance and reliability problems.
  • Pragmatic and collaborative approach to decision making and system design.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience building highly available and secure systems at scale.
  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker.
  • Proficiency in Ruby and/or Puppet.
  • Experience with the Hashicorp stack, specifically Vault.
  • Experience with infrastructure services such as LDAP, SSH, VPN, HTTP proxies, etc.
  • Contributions to open source.

Who We Are:

GitHub is the developer company. We make it easier for developers to be developers: to work together, to solve challenging problems, and to create the world’s most important technologies. We foster a collaborative community that can come together—as individuals and in teams—to create the future of software and make a difference in the world.

Leadership Principles:

Customer Obsessed - Trust by Default - Ship to Learn - Own the Outcome - Growth Mindset - Global Product, Global Team - Anything is Possible - Practice Kindness

Why You Should Join:

At GitHub, we constantly strive to create an environment that allows our employees (Hubbers) to do the best work of their lives.
