Senior Security Engineer

 Tech    Full-time

At Civis, we take protecting data seriously and are looking for a security engineer with security and compliance expertise.

You will design big picture security strategy while laying out the details of an implementation plan. You understand the constant need to balance the benefits of incremental security measures with the potential burdens on the business. You will proactively find and fix security problems, monitor our networks utilizing security tools such as SIEM and next-gen endpoint protection, and prioritize efforts based on risk.  You’ll join our Chicago-based team, closely collaborating with engineers, data scientists, IT, and our client success team.

We are looking for individuals from a wide range of backgrounds with a demonstrated ability to define and tailor a security strategy that fits Civis' business and overall growth objectives.

We want you to never stop learning. Everyone has a mentor from day one and tracks their personal development alongside their technical deliverables. On the security engineering team, you’ll be joining a small core of infrastructure engineers and will help steer the course of our operations.  You’ll work with compliance frameworks such as SSAE16, HIPAA, FERPA, and FedRAMP, perform routine vulnerability testing of our corporate office and AWS networks, help manage third-party penetration tests, and pretty much work with every AWS service available (seriously).  Valuing continuous learning means recognizing that our strongest contributors stand out for their capabilities and not their credentials.

We are smart, fun, and a little bit weird. Does this sound like you?
