Security Engineer


LiveRamp provides the identity resolution services and integrations that are the foundation for omnichannel marketing. Our services transform the technology platforms used by our customers into people-based marketing channels that improve the relevancy of marketing, and ultimately allow consumers to better connect with the brands and products they love.


LiveRamp is looking for engineers to secure our infrastructure. LiveRamp’s IdentityLink product is an identity resolution service that ties data to real people and makes it possible to use that data in a secure, privacy-safe way for marketing initiatives across any digital platform. We process billions of transactions on a daily basis and the companies we work with entrust us with their most sensitive data.

You’ll be a founding member of a team whose mission is to secure and continuously improve security at LiveRamp.  We’re looking for someone who is a security subject matter expert and can be a primary point of contact for developers at LiveRamp.

You will solve security challenges by working directly with your fellow engineers and we will embed you within teams so we can balance feature development against security risk and architect solutions that allow us to deliver product quickly and securely.

Leave your ego at the door, roll up your sleeves and start solving huge challenges as soon as you begin.

  • Maintain and implement Acxiom enterprise security policies, standards, procedures and guidelines.
