 Remote, US

Come help us build the world's most trusted on-demand, logistics engine for delivery! We're building a team of great minds to help us secure and maintain a 24×7, no downtime, global infrastructure system that powers DoorDash’s multi-sided marketplace of consumers, merchants, and drivers.

The Information Security team is looking for a Security Engineer focused on detection and response to enhance DoorDash’s ability to detect and respond to anomalous activities on its networks and within its systems. You will be a part of our inclusive, collaborative team responsible for building a safe and reliable delivery network. On the Security team we need to protect all of our customers, as well as the logistics engine itself. It’s no simple task, but it wouldn’t be interesting if it was!

What You’ll Do

  • Work directly with engineering and security leaders to build and operate infrastructure and automation to detect and respond to intrusions and security threats.
  • Develop detection strategies to identify anomalous behaviors and attacks to ensure applications running within the cloud environment. 
  • Respond to security incidents, perform root-cause, and strategize how to prevent the same type of incidents from occurring in the future.
  • Build automation workflows for alerts and common response scenarios.
  • Manage data loss prevention to prevent sensitive data from proliferating within, or leaving, the cloud network.
  • Define and implement network and endpoint sensors that feed data and metrics into DoorDash’s security monitoring framework.
  • Define, document and implement security standards, guidelines and procedures for secure operations in a cloud infrastructure environment.

What We’re Looking For

  • 3+ years of experience as an infrastructure engineer or a system administrator in an information security discipline.
  • Background in incident response, threat hunting, forensics, intrusion detection, or threat intelligence.
  • Experience with a broad range of technologies including endpoint detection, network technologies, and AWS cloud services.
  • Experience with operating a formal bug-bounty program.
  • Breadth of technical experience across various infrastructure and security areas running in large production environments.
  • Exceptional analytical and investigative abilities with hands-on experience leading root cause analysis.
  • Experience solving complex, systemic issues that require creative thinking and solutions.
  • Demonstrated track record of driving improvements to a company’s security posture.
  • Expertise with cloud infrastructure and management in AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills – you can explain security design with respect to cloud infrastructure to security and engineering personnel.
