Looker is on a mission to bring better insights and data-driven decisions to every business. Everything we do is aimed at making sure our customers love every aspect of Looker, from our products and technologies to our ease of doing business and our support. We are looking for curiously brilliant individuals to join our team as we reinvent data analytics. Get data-driven and see yourself at Looker.

Looker is seeking security professionals for the security team to support our rapidly growing business. Our customers entrust us with access to their data. We will not be successful without secure operations. We walk side by side with Operations, Engineering and others. We need to provide a secure experience across a variety of security functions (monitoring, incident response, vulnerability management and endpoint protection).

You will be doing it in a fast-paced environment where security, reliability and scalability counts. The ideal candidate has experience with a larger production environment and is ready to scale their own responsibilities along with the company.

Our team at Looker is a tight-knit group of high-performers. Simplicity is good. We don’t believe in large teams. We do believe in clear communication and getting things done, right. We make a difference, we make it better and keep iterating.
