Who We Are
The Information Security (InfoSec) is a team of security
engineers and security-focused software engineers helping ensure
Twitter builds and maintains secure systems and software. We
collaborate with other teams, develop tooling, advocate for the
security of our users, and train engineers throughout the SDLC to
ensure security is prioritized at each step of development.
What You'll Do
As a Security Engineer, you'll join a team of engineers working
to reduce security risk across the company. We work collaboratively
with other teams to identify risks with security impact to the
company, communicate that impact to teams and management, and
engineer solutions. We strive to identify recurring classes of
security problems, find the underlying cause(s), and develop
generalized solutions. We continually advocate for the protection
of our users and teach security to engineers to empower their own
Qualifications Who You Are
As a Senior Infrastructure Security Engineer, you will have both

balancing security and team productivity. You will have modeled and
identified potential risks in designs, configuration, code, or in
deployed systems. You have worked with both technical and
non-technical teams. You recognize that the success of building
effective security solutions requires interpersonal skills just as
much as technical skills. You will have experience trading the
perfect solution eventually for a better solution today. You will
