Job Description


Meltwater’s collaborative Security Team needs a passionate Security Engineer to continue to progress Meltwater’s security forward. Working with a group of fun loving people who are genuinely excited and passionate about security, there would be more laughs than facepalms. If you believe that improving security is about constantly moving technology forward to be more secure, shifting security tools left, creating checks earlier in the development lifecycle, and enabling teams to use such tooling themselves, then you’ll feel at home on Meltwater’s Security Team!

At Meltwater we have autonomous, empowered and highly efficient teams, and part of the Security Team’s responsibility is to ensure teams can continue to operate that way without compromising the security of our systems, services and data. Via enablement and collaboration directly with teams, Security Engineers ensure that our development and infrastructure practices have security defined, integrated and implemented in a common-sense manner that reduces risk for our business. Security Engineers define best practices, build tools, implement security checks and controls together with the broader Engineering and IT teams to ensure that our employees and our customers' data stays safe.


In this role, you will help shape Meltwater’s overall security posture.
