Description of Duties
Would you like to help create a meaningfully useful, modern security product on top of the Grafana stack, available as open source and to any Grafana customer? Would you like to be a founding member of the security operations function behind Grafana’s open source software stack and Grafana Cloud? Would you like to help grow a security engineering team from a beautiful acorn to a collaborative, transparent, and highly capable 24x7 unit? Do you want to build great tools and experiences, then open source them to the community?
We want to build and productise a security system that’s automated at scale, rigorously data-driven, and built from the ground up with defense-in-depth and self-healing in mind, supporting a highly autonomous, remote-first, Cloud-native organisation. This is an opportunity to help form a cutting-edge security strategy and build the platforms that underlie it. We’re taking the best of open source and commercial tooling and making them talk to each other to arrive at some very special outcomes. We also want to open source as much as possible of our work to the community and into our products.
This is a new, high growth team and a great opportunity to get in at the ground level. Early areas of focus for the team will be around a new approach to endpoint security, access control at scale and attack surface mapping and monitoring, all with an eye on compliance-as-code and supporting self-service by risk owners across the business.
For all that, we believe absolutely in agreeing reasonable expectations and timeframes and giving people the room to do great work, in a setting that prioritizes health, happiness and work-life balance.
