Position Summary

Platform.sh seeks a Security Operations Engineer to oversee the effectiveness of the Security team, manage security incidents, and monitor worldwide activity to uphold our security standards. We are seeking someone who is eager to learn, grow with the team and take on new challenges. This is an excellent opportunity to kickstart a career in security and make a substantial impact on the company’s security operations. As a member of a newly established position, you will have a unique opportunity to contribute to its growth and refine processes.

This role reports to our Security Operations Manager and collaborates closely with all teams within the organization

What you can expect

  • Ownership of the on-call rotation; provide assistance for both internal and external (customer-related) matters, in a role akin to a “first responder”.
  • Coordinate with other departments to handle incidents or their prevention (e.g., call for a patch rollout, incident clean-up)
  • Investigate ongoing and completed incidents to provide an RCA (Root Cause Analysis)
  • Ensure all systems and services in our environment are securely configured and monitored
  • Develop and maintain logging and monitoring capabilities across our cloud surface, using built-in tools or custom ones

  • Improve accuracy and false positive detection to minimize noise
  • Create and improve internal procedures to handle security incidents
  • Develop Cyber Threat Intelligence capabilities
  • Coordinate penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, and related activities
  • Support other Security teams by responding to information requests, both formal and informal, and to gather evidence for our ongoing certifications such as PCI-DSS and SOC 2

What you bring

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills. As a worldwide company, English is our lingua franca and Markdown is our notation of choice
  • Command of general Linux fare (kernel, core utils, terminal, shell scripting, man pages, etc.)
  • Comfortable with using only the terminal to complete tasks (SSH/CLI tools are ubiquitous in our workflows)
  • Good knowledge of IaaS solutions such as AWS, GCP or Azure
  • Strong understanding of monitoring and detection technologies in cloud network architectures with complex topologies
  • Proficiency in shell scripting and/or Python
  • 1-2 years of aggregate experience in similar roles (e.g., L1 Support, SOC Analyst)

Bonus points

  • CSP certifications (check our providers here), where Security or Operations focused are preferred (e.g., AWS: Cloud Practitioner, SysOps Administrator, Certified Security)
  • General security certifications from entities like ISC2 and GIAC (e.g., SSCP, GCIH)
  • Demonstrable experience in regulatory compliance such as PCI-DSS or SOC 2 Type II
  • In-depth knowledge of Platform.sh provided software (check our docs here)
