Job Description

Our security team supports the unwritten fourth tenet of Slack’s mission: make people’s working lives more secure. We’re serious about protecting our infrastructure, operations, and most importantly, our customers’ data. We take a systemic approach to security and strive to ensure that we provide low friction, high-impact security across everything we do. We’re looking for a developer to help contribute to our Security Engineering team. Significant in-field experience is absolutely not a requirement but an interest in security, curiosity and a deep desire to learn is paramount.

This role is to work directly on the team which developed the novel alerting mechanism go-audit which turns out to be quite an interesting scaling problem. This team also is responsible for the production, development and ongoing extensions to the Nebula overlay network. We have solved some interesting problems by writing code and running the systems which our software runs upon.

A significant part of this job is meant to attract a multidisciplinary engineer; you probably feel skeptical of any job posting with the word “DevOps” in it, but that (or even SecDevOps) is what you do. While we don’t work directly on hardening systems, we would ask for your help in evaluating tooling pragmatically—particularly when the right time is to spend some money or when months of development would be advantageous.

Slack has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative. If this sounds like a good fit for you, why not say hello?
