We're a team of 100+ people living and working remotely in 15+ countries. We're working hard to build a diverse and collaborative team that can empathize with each other to solve hard problems and build a product we can be proud of. For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

Hi there! We're looking for someone to join our Engineering team at Zapier as a Security Infrastructure Engineer. Are you interested in helping build and secure a powerful automation tool? Then read on…

Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if you care deeply about building secure products in secure ways that simplify the lives of millions of people through automation.

About You

You have web application and infrastructure security experience. Keeping the core Zapier web application secure is at the heart of this role. Zapier is a SaaS product, so experience building software and managing infrastructure under a similar model is a big plus.

You love writing software and building infrastructure. Most of what you’ll do each day is guiding, building and maintaining Zapier's infrastructure and product. You'll focus on high value, high risk portions of Zapier. You'll use code to automate and improve the more mundane parts of auditing and monitoring of internal processes, as well as in the product.

You have worked with teams before on large Python, AWS, & Kubernetes projects. You’re also familiar with frameworks for several languages like Django/Flask or React/Backbone.js. You've also worked extensively in cloud providers like AWS, GCE, or Azure as well as container automation frameworks like Kubernetes.

You love doing things efficiently. At Zapier, the work you do will have a disproportionate impact on the business. We believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves. You'll be in a unique position to find and eliminate "insecure and painful" experiences and replace them with "secure and joyful" experiences.

You love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet.

You love to set your own direction. At Zapier, we have one team meeting each week and one-on-one meetings every month. Between those we chat in Slack and then go make things happen.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Write some Python!
  • Build and maintain tooling to log, monitor and audit our infrastructure. You'll do this via AWS SDKs, k8s APIs, or directly.
  • Periodically embed with product teams with to help with security sensitive projects.
  • Migrate tooling to SSO/SAML providers to reduce password risk and improve UX.
  • Build internal tooling to ensure safe data access patterns for Zapier employees.
  • Review code across Zapier's product and infrastructure.
  • Locating weak points across Zapier and strengthening them.
  • Ship code to millions of users every week.
