Airtable's mission is to enable anyone to create software. Users can only create fearlessly when they trust that their data is safe with us. Therefore, security is built into everything we do: product design, feature development, architecture, operations, and customer support. Our goal in this role is to build an incident response team to respond to threats facing our infrastructure, customers and employees.   This role will be the first person of that team to build the capability.

We think through problems from first principles, and work with the whole company to build proactive ls to deliver trustworthy systems that serve users and operators.

What you'll do

  • Be part of a new security team building up from the ground up.   Airtable is growing fast, real fast!   We’re building an extension of our San Francisco-based security team in Austin, and you can help us be at the ground-level of that build-out!

  • Develop our security log aggregation and detection system (SIEM) for our corporate and production environments.

  • Build-up Cyber Incident Response Processes and Procedures. 

  • Investigate Cyber Security Incidents and build-up automated workflows to help resolve issues at scale with minimal manual intervention.

  • You're an expert in modern log aggregation and SIEM solutions including building advanced features and tackling the scale challenges of these platforms.

  • You understand the security logging needs of an AWS, SaaS platform and macOS based environments.

  • You strive to automate yourself out of your current challenge to focus on your next challenge.   Familiarity with modern scripting languages including javascript and python is a big plus!
