As an incident responder, you will apply lessons learned as part of our on-call rotation to improve incident handling and resolution, and utilize your software engineering background to identify points of leverage for automation in our operational work. You will work cross functionally with other teams and stakeholders to expand our incident management tooling for non security domains, and to remediate risks identified during security incidents. This role blends proactive software engineering, and reactive incident response activities with approximately 50% of the time spent in each area.
