Timescale is building out a dedicated security function working towards a spotless security posture, allowing us to tackle security concerns early on in development. We’re looking for a talented and versatile InfoSec professional to help us reason about these security concerns, and work with our teams to engineer secure and robust systems at scale.
If you’re the kind of person who reasons through things from first principles, rather than robotic memorization of security “rules of thumb”, and you are good at balancing theoretical concerns with practical ones, you’re an excellent fit for this role.
In this role, you will be leading the execution arm of all security engineering related matters in the company, and will be playing a major role in setting our security strategy. You will be one of the first security-focused hires, and your opinion will be very important for how we will hire future security roles and how we prioritize them. Your first activities upon joining will likely consist of assessing the current state of our APIs and Database code and immersing yourself in them, helping us strategize a roadmap, and then executing on said roadmap.
You don’t need to fit all of the following criteria, and you are encouraged to apply even if you don’t check all of the boxes or if you feel we’ve left some things out, but keep in mind that this is a Staff Engineer level position and we expect applicants to have a heightened level of mastery over their domain.
What we’re looking for:
