Security Engineer

We are looking for a capable security engineer who is able to identify and fix vulnerabilities within the GitLab software stack and help implement good security practices within the company.



As a lead of the security team you should organize the work to keep the trust of our users:

  1. Make a risk assessment (based on ISO 27001 but we don't seek certification)
  2. Define priorities, scope, and a time-line
  3. Define a hiring plan, budget, and internal cooperation you need.
  4. Make sure the plan is always up to date and links to the relevant issues
  5. Guard the time-line and escalate when needed

The actions can be on the following fronts:

We agree that Good Security Is Holistic. We think that simulating a security culture in engineering is one of the most important things. We don't do checklist security, the goal is to keep the trust of our users by being secure, compliance is not a goal in itself. We don't think that third party products are important but they are no silver bullet to make everything secure.
