Square’s Information Security culture is focused on enabling our engineering teams to build and ship secure products. We achieve this by designing, building, and deploying state of the art security alongside our product and infrastructure teams.
As a Senior Security Engineer, Cloud Infrastructure, you will be responsible for hardening of Square’s cloud computing and cloud network environments. Square is in the early days of migrating existing on-prem services to the cloud. Your work will shape the way we use the cloud for years to come.

The ideal candidate will have experience across a range of technical disciplines and may have had past jobs such as Information Security (Hardening, Detection/Response, Blue Team, etc) and systems (SRE, SysAdmin, Network Engineer, etc). This is a senior role, and we’re looking for someone who has experience with a wide variety of real-world issues.
