Are you a technical leader who wants to own critical, highly scalable systems, and contribute to the world’s largest code hosting platform?
GitHub is looking for an Infrastructure Security Engineer to join our growing team. We are a hybrid of traditional infrastructure engineers, site reliability engineers and security engineers, working together to create systems and tools that enable our fellow engineers to securely operate and scale the world’s largest code hosting platform. As a member of this team, you will develop, implement, and maintain organization-wide capabilities such as secrets management, identity and access management, gateway access, secure provisioning, and more. You’ll always be challenged to solve interesting and novel problems that have real impact on how the world builds software.
This role does not require an extensive security background or education level, provided you’re eager to learn and passionate about security. This would be an excellent fit for someone currently working as a site reliability engineer or similar who wants to translate their skills to the security domain. The team’s responsibilities vary in complexity, and require different skill levels, so there is an opportunity here for learning and growth if transferring from another branch of engineering outside of the traditional cybersecurity domains.
GitHub is globally distributed, so you must thrive in an environment of remote work and asynchronous communication. You will be expected to have strong written and oral communication skills and be able to develop effective relationships with coworkers in locations around the globe. Familiarity with git and/or GitHub is a plus.
