Why SecurityScorecard

At SecurityScorecard, we are revolutionizing the cyber security industry, and we want YOU to be part of the change! Our SaaS products have created a new category of enterprise software, which companies worldwide rely on to manage the cyber security posture of their vendors.

Backed by Sequoia and Google Ventures, we are growing tremendously year over year. As we scale, so does our need for talent - if you are intellectually curious and excited by the idea of contributing to a high-growth startup, we’d love to talk to you!

About the Role

We are seeking a Senior Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) with a knack for solving complex problems. You will combine your acumen for product operations and engineering to help build high-quality solutions which elevate our platform.

More specifically, you will be responsible for availability, latency, performance, efficiency, monitoring, emergency response, and infrastructure planning of SecurityScorecard’s platform. On a daily basis, you will both resolve problems as they arise and then design infrastructure and automations to eliminate or iteratively fix these incidents going forward. Any reactive fix you encounter will motivate and propel you towards creating key infrastructure improvements.


  • Work with the rest of the team to improve the reliability of the product and its individual services
  • Service escalated operational tickets supporting existing products and supporting new product development
  • Identify high value opportunities for reducing operational friction and production issues though process improvement, automation, or infrastructure refactoring
  • Participate in capacity/infrastructure planning and implementation of small to large-scale distributed systems
  • Research new technology/methodologies and championing their adoption across teams
  • Participate in an on-call rotation for cross team services

Apply if the following sounds mostly like you!

  • 8-10 years of overall experience in software engineering, systems administration, DevOps, SRE, or related disciplines
  • At least 5 years of software engineering experience in large-scale distributed systems
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Understanding of the OSI model
  • Continuous Integration/Deployment (Jenkins) pipeline experience
  • Experience in providing service observability in production (APM, statsd, log aggregation)
  • Container Orchestration and Configuration Management experience (AWS ECS/Terraform/Ansible preferred)
  • Can dive deep on an issue, going into language runtimes, 3rd party OSS services, and even the Linux kernel
  • Security knowledge preferred

We're excited to hear from you, and don't be dissuaded from applying if everything above doesn't apply!
