Infrastructure Security Specialist

Adyen is growing rapidly. The Security team is looking for an Infrastructure Security Specialist to support the Infrastructure team.

This role will require you to wear many hats:

  • Sometimes you'll be a "Information Security Consultant", facilitating risk assessment and threat modeling sessions;
  • Sometimes you'll be a "Product Owner"/"Project manager" helping to define priorities and deliver projects together with frontline infrastructure engineers;
  • Sometimes you'll be a :"SIEM engineer", writing custom alerting logic in Python to help us detect incidents based on the risks and indicators you identify in your other activities
  • And much more that you'll define yourself

Who you are

  • You believe that security is just one of many critical qualities of properly built systems
  • You have opinions, especially security ones, about some of:
    • CI patterns
    • Container tooling
    • Forensics/incident response
    • Linux distros
    • MacOS fleet management
    • Open source supply chain risks
    • Pentest best practices
    • SDLC-related best practices
    • SRE concepts
    • Vulnerability management

 

What you’ll do

  • You're comfortable switching between idealism and realism, and resistant to whiplash from doing it
  • You don't mind occasionally encountering "commercial-side" issues or doing a bit of operational work
  • You take ownership of and communicate actively about the things you think are important
  • You are eager to dive into complex issues alongside subject matter experts and take responsibility for being the “expert learner” by asking the right questions
  • You connect with people and build relationships

Our business and technical challenges are unique, we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours.
