We’re always on the search for amazing people. People who have a real passion for what they do and are masters at their craft. Right now we are looking for a Senior Security Analytics and Detection Lead to join our Information Security (InfoSec) team. The InfoSec team leads the strategy, policy, and programs for information security company-wide. Our responsibilities include risk management, implementing a holistic security program, preventing and detecting security threats, and handling incident response.

  • Continuously build advanced and novel detection mechanisms for evolving attacker techniques, tactics, and procedures, partnering with teams company-wide to learn about Elastic’s threat landscape
  • Collaborate with Security Engineering to develop and maintain the visibility, signals, tools, and infrastructure that we use, constantly evolving them to match sophisticated attackers
