The Democratic National Committee’s Tech team is hiring an Infrastructure Security Engineer to help run our internal security initiatives. We are looking for an experienced security engineer to work with our Engineering and IT teams to build systems that improve our security posture for our employees.
In this role, you will secure dozens of existing technologies across both the enterprise and production environments. You’ll find yourself securing multiple systems such as mail, networks, Splunk, AWS, GCP, JAMF/ABM (for Mac support), security monitoring systems, laptops like Macs and Chromebooks, MDM tools, Splunk, and identity and access management integrations.
Additional useful experience: end-user training, NIST Cybersecurity Framework (or equivalent), risk management, zero-trust networks, threat modeling, vendor security assessments, and remote staff provisions.
The Tech team is a small, diverse team that develops and supports the technology used by candidates and organizers in all 50 states and all 3,413 counties across the United States to analyze data, organize campaigns, raise money, and get out the vote on election day.
But there’s more to do. So we’re hiring product managers, engineers, researchers, designers, security experts, IT professionals, and data scientists who can use user-centered design and rapid iteration to develop a rich technology ecosystem for progressives—building tools ourselves as well as partnering with other companies and organizations.
Do You Want To…
- Secure the future of our country? Right now a lot is at stake in our country and our team has a huge opportunity to make a real difference.
- Work with amazing people? We’re building a diverse, distributed team, hiring the best people we can wherever they are—alumni from past Presidential campaigns working out of DC and New York, experienced product developers from the SF Bay Area, and more.
- Never stop learning? There are people who know about politics and people who know about technology and a few who have figured out some things about how to combine the two, but we are blazing a lot of new trails and you should be comfortable exploring and learning from everyone you can.
- Partner with our IT team, software developers and staff to improve our overall security posture;
- Implement tools to detect security issues at affecting our organization, and to remediate as necessary;
- Provide actionable metrics to keep the us on track and to prioritize work;
- Evolve our IT systems to have a bias toward security by design, not bolted on.
