About the job
Spotify listeners, creators and employees trust us to provide a safe digital platform that protects any sensitive information they share with us. Spotify Security is a distributed team that champions and delivers on initiatives with Spotify’s autonomous teams to ensure that our organization keeps information security appropriately prioritized and that the trust we have with these stakeholders is well-deserved. We focus on raising security awareness, providing security intelligence and building tools to enable these teams to feel a shared sense of responsibility for security and privacy concerns. We aim to constantly improve the security posture of our organization by iterating on our tooling and process.
We are looking for a security analyst to join our vulnerability management team that helps teams make informed decisions on their security posture based on security vulnerabilities and continuously improve their security and engineering practices. You will play a key role in ensuring we discover and manage vulnerabilities before attackers can use them to harm Spotify.
What You’ll Do
- Drive improvements and the smooth operation in Spotify’s Vulnerability Management program, which notifies teams about vulnerabilities discovered on their technical assets and supervises their resolution.
- Support development teams in their usage of the Vulnerability Management Program, such as onboarding new teams and technical assets onto the program, understanding findings from the program and the vulnerability issue lifecycle, and generally ensuring that they realize value from the program.
- Provide security expertise regarding vulnerabilities, exploitation/attack scenarios, and the risk in terms of likelihood and impact.
- Coordinate the resolution of outstanding vulnerability findings that require human intervention.
- Imagine and propose improvements to our vulnerability management systems, which automate the most common aspects of vulnerability management lifecycle and provide a simple interface for asset owners to self-manage their vulnerability findings.
- Collaborate with other security teams and partners to ensure the vulnerability management program and systems align with our overall security program.
