Security Engineer (DART)

| Seattle
Who we're looking for:
Rover is seeking an experienced Detection and Response Engineer to help create the Detection and Response Team (DART) as part of the emerging Information Security Program at Rover.com. This individual will oversee projects centered on the detection, response, and mitigation of security incidents occurring in both the corporate network, Rover.com application, and AWS infrastructure.
The ideal candidate will be able to take on projects with broad scope and ambiguous requirements to plan, implement, and deliver a greater framework of detection and response across the organization. This position will require knowledge of security controls and detection techniques employed in corporate networks, AWS infrastructure, and complex applications. We do not operate a “traditional” corporate environment and have no on-premises servers. This newly created SOC will be focused on endpoint security, our cloud environment, and e-commerce platform.
This is a new team working in a new space so the ideal candidate will be comfortable with complex work, ambiguity, switching between the big picture and detailed tasks, is willing to adapt to a changing landscape, and most of all is someone who enjoys a challenge!

Your Responsibilities:

  • Detect, investigate, and mitigate emergent security incidents
  • Conduct ad-hoc data analysis for investigation and quantification of security posture, detection, and response capabilities
  • Develop the long-term vision for Rover's detection and response capabilities, cloud security controls, and corporate network security capabilities in collaboration with technical leadership

Your Qualifications:

  • 3+ years working in an engineering/software development capacity
  • 3+ years in the security industry or working on security related projects
  • 3+ years in detection and response or similar role
  • Strong business acumen including excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong ability to comprehend Rover's business needs and information security goals
  • Experience with large scale cloud-based application deployments
  • The ideal candidate has experience with AWS, Python, and Linux shell

Rover is an equal opportunity employer committed to promoting a diverse, inclusive and inventive environment with the best employees. We’re driven by seeing our people succeed and grow, and we work to ensure everyone contributes to their fullest potential. We consider all qualified applicants without regard to age, race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, disability, protected veteran status, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or any other protected status in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and ordinances.
