Detection Engineering 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. Rather than traditional commercial tooling, you’ll help to drive codified processes, data analytics and automation for detection and response scale. You’ll maintain strong partnerships with product and other engineering teams to help convey threat awareness and to collect requirements for any monitoring and response needs throughout Stripe.

We’re looking for an experienced staff engineer who is excited to lead, mentor and grow engineers on teams spanning areas from core infrastructure security to identity and authorization with the goal of ensuring the long-term protection of Stripe and our Users.

  • Partner closely with across Engineering teams to ensure a world class security environment
  • Scope and lead large technical projects with enormous impact across many teams at Stripe
  • Scrutinize and reason clearly about the technology and architecture choices we make. In many cases, you will be the decider of these decisions
  • 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

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • A strong security background, including 10+ years of experience with software engineering and security design at a top tier software company
  • Previous experience as a Staff, Senior Staff, Principal, or Distinguished Engineer at a top tier company
  • A healthy skepticism for the status quo
  • An 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.
  • An 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
