Shopify’s Internal Security Team is looking for a junior developer who believes our employees deserve to be as secure as our merchants.

We need a passionate analyst who has a keen interest in securing the people of Shopify.

    • Clear communication and thinking about cyber threat detection
    • A methodical and disciplined mindset

It'd be great if you have experience with:

    • Contributing to open source security projects
    • Log aggregation technologies and tools (Splunk, ELK stacks, ...)
    • SIEM systems

You'll be working on things like:

    • Working as support for subject matter experts concerning device security, identity management, cyber threat detection, and risks profiling and mitigation
    • Diving deep into the systems we currently use to evaluate and determine how future security systems will fit in
    • Developing tools to help gain more visibility into our networks and scale intrusion detection capabilities
