An overview of this role
You will build and maintain the tools we use to detect and respond to emerging threats in efficient and scalable ways, respond to security incidents and drive them to resolution, and develop and deploy preventative security measures for the GitLab organization and GitLab.com. Successful Security Engineers thrive in high-pressure environments, remain calm, follow prepared runbooks and think critically. Security Engineers can think like both an attacker and defender, engage with and mentor more junior Security Engineers, and can help come up with proactive and preventative security measures to keep GitLab and its user’s data safe in an ever-changing threat landscape.

About the team
SIRT is a globally distributed team of engineers split across 3 core regions; AMER, APAC and EMEA and is at the forefront of security events that impact both GitLab.com and GitLab. We are both reactive and proactive, leading security investigations, incident response support and response resolution, through to cyber threat analysis and detection and response engineering. Even though we’re a global team, we work together in a cross-regional manner and have automation and processes to facilitate collaboration when resolving incidents, handovers, and general collaboration for project work as well.
Please note that we welcome interest from candidates with varying levels of experience; many successful candidates do not meet every single requirement. Additionally, studies have shown that people from [underrepresented groups](https://about.gitlab.com/company/culture/inclusion/#examples-of- select-underrepresented-groups) are less likely to apply to a job unless they meet every single qualification.
