  • Enterprise Security Engineer

    The Democratic National Committee

    The Democratic National Committee’s Tech team is hiring a enterprise security engineer to lead our internal security initiatives. We are looking for an experienced security engineer to help us identify the biggest security opportunities and to work with our engineers to build solutions that address those opportunities.

Description

Who we are
The Tech team is a small, diverse team that develops and supports the technology used by candidates and organizers in all 50 states and all 3,413 counties across the United States to analyze data, organize campaigns, raise money, and get out the vote on election day.

But there’s more to do. So we’re hiring product managers, engineers, researchers, designers, security experts, IT professionals, and data scientists who can use user-centered design and rapid iteration to develop a rich technology ecosystem for progressives—building tools ourselves as well as partnering with other companies and organizations.

Do you want to...
Secure the future of our country? Right now a lot is at stake in our country and our team has a huge opportunity to make a real difference.
Work with amazing people? We’re building a diverse, distributed team, hiring the best people we can wherever they are—alumni from past Presidential campaigns working out of DC and New York, experienced product developers from the SF Bay Area, and more.
Never stop learning? There are people who know about politics and people who know about technology and a few who have figured out some things about how to combine the two, but we are blazing a lot of new trails and you should be comfortable exploring and learning from everyone you can.


Responsibilities

  • You will...
  • Partner with our IT team and software developers to improve our overall security posture
  • Implement tools to detect security issues at affecting our organization, to to remediate
  • Provide actionable metrics to keep the us on track and to prioritize work
  • Evolve our IT systems to have a bias toward security by design, not bolted on.
  • We are looking for a hands-on security engineer who can effectively advocate for security measures and to help us evolve our IT systems in light of the current threat landscape. We're looking for a broad array of technical and soft skills, but we recognize that people will have areas of concentration. Useful tech skills include Splunk, monitoring systems, endpoint tools, and networking of all sorts. Also useful would be experience with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (or equiv), risk management, zero-trust networks, and threat modeling.
  • We don’t require previous experience in politics. If you are coming from industry, however, be aware that some things are different in the world of politics: while we've done some budget hacking so we can be competitive when it comes to salaries we know we can’t beat Google or Facebook. On the other hand, you might legit help save the world.
