We believe that the way people interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. We’re dedicated to empowering this transformation by building the tools and experiences that thousands of developers use to create their own products. Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life. We work with thousands of companies like Venmo and SoFi, several of the Fortune 500, and many of the largest banks to make it easy for people to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they want to use. Plaid’s network covers 11,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe. Founded in 2013, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C., London and Amsterdam.
The mission of Plaid's Security Operations Team is to secure environments for our employees, development, and services. We achieve this by implementing controls that ensure security in the background, measuring effectiveness and adjusting controls. We also monitor and respond to issues that occur in those environments, address events, and reduce risk exposure.
As a Security Engineer on the Security Operations team, you will implement security around the cloud and Kubernetes environments that run our SaaS platform. You will investigate mitigating configuration drifts, work with infrastructure to harden and automate security configurations for our Kubernetes (and other) infrastructure-as-code pipelines, and work with product teams as new cloud services are needed as products grow. Major projects may include building automated remediation tooling, refining vulnerability management or network/event monitoring processes across our clusters, and coordinating with the Corporate Security portion of the SecOps team to standardize response processes and improvements.
We're guided by our principles, including impact, growing together, embracing openness and positivity, and inventing tomorrow; we're looking for leaders motivated by those same principles.
