Our team is made up of people from varied backgrounds, including engineers who built and scaled organizations like Google, Netflix, eBay, GitHub, and LivingSocial. We build modern software with modern techniques like TDD, continuous delivery, DevOps, and service-oriented architecture. Cross-functional partnerships are deeply meaningful to us and are how we’ve built up immense trust with the people running the business. We focus on high-value products that solve clearly identified problems but are designed in a sustainable way so that value continues to deliver in the long term. In fact, some of our proudest moments come from solving business problems without writing a line of code.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Stitch Fix is looking for a Principal Cloud Security Engineer to help with security initiatives and implementing best practices in the areas of infrastructure, network security, and cloud environments, as well as compliance and policy.
The individual in this role will be part of the Security Team and work closely with the various Platform and Development teams. The candidate should have strong experience with container technologies, and deployment and integration patterns in a production AWS environment.
Our team members are given a great deal of autonomy in the pursuit of keeping Stitch Fix secure, and the successful candidate will demonstrate strong communication skills. They should be comfortable and productive, working independently, partnering with a larger, highly distributed engineering team.
We’re looking specifically for folks who emphasize usable security. Stitch Fix is a fast-growing company, and our security program needs to be able to keep pace with that growth while not disrupting innovation.
REQUISITE SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Your skills are broad – building, deploying, and maintaining security services in an organization, and serving as the Subject Matter Expert for cloud security throughout the development lifecycle.
Strong experience with AWS security services (Security Hub, GuardDuty, Macie, etc.)
Experience implementing IAM solutions
Capable of working with common CI/CD technologies
Knowledge of common development practices and tools
Experience with Docker
Experience with Infrastructure as Code
Mentoring junior developers and security engineers
Minimum of 6 years supporting production AWS environments
ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
Technologies we rely on to pursue solutions to business problems include:
Ruby on Rails
AWS / ECS
AWS / Lambda
Even if you already have experience with these tools, you’ll have the chance to get even better with them. And if you don’t already use at least a few of these tools, we will help you learn and become effective with them.
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT YOU BECAUSE…
YOU ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT TECHNOLOGY. You will collaborate to build solutions using the appropriate tools and contribute to design and architecture across multiple systems. You want to build on your experience and help us to adopt new technologies. You’ll learn from us, and we’ll learn from you. You care deeply about the experience you are delivering.
YOU HAVE A PRODUCT-FOCUSED MINDSET. Our team works together to deliver projects that use technology to solve real business problems. Your team members and business partners will seek out your opinion on how the product you’re building should work. You aren’t afraid to dig deep and ask the tough questions of our customers, company, and executive team.
YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING YOUR LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. You should believe in what you’re doing and inspire others around you to be their best selves? Do you feel ownership of the projects you are working on?
YOU HAVE DEEP RESPECT FOR YOUR CRAFT. We are dedicated to building software sustainably, using modern techniques. You’re always looking for more and better ways to write software, and enthusiastic about sharing them with your team.
YOU ARE RESPECTFUL, EMPATHETIC, AND HUMBLE. We want you to take your work seriously and be open to personal and professional growth. Successful engineers show everyone respect and consideration.
