Netflix has a unique and creative culture that guides us to do things differently. This helps keep engineering velocity high but also means that our security team needs to operate differently than a traditional security team. The two aspects of the culture that most affect how the security team operates are “Freedom and Responsibility” and “Context not Control”. Employees have tremendous freedom in their work along with the corresponding responsibility to do the right thing for Netflix. Instead of controlling engineers with process and security gates we enable them to build secure code and provide them with adequate security context to make the right decisions for Netflix.
The Workforce and Infrastructure Security Services Engineering (WISSE) organization at Netflix helps provide scalable security guidance influence the paved road security capabilities/products and drive their use through our self-service products and targeted partnerships. The Application and Infrastructure Security (AIS) Partnership team is the part of this organization that builds close partnerships with key areas in our engineering ecosystem to identify and drive high-impact security initiatives that drive down risk. We rely heavily on Paved Road adoption and security scanning services to scale security for the broader engineering ecosystem.
We are looking for a security engineer to complement the team’s existing partnership work with project-based engagements to reduce security risk outside of the core partnership areas. The goal is to help identify impactful security projects and conduct fast discovery and thoughtful solutioning to provide recommendations that improve the security of the Netflix engineering ecosystem.
