Atlanta, GA, US
Kabbage is blazing a trail in big data & fintech and we are looking for a Principal Security Engineer to join us as we continue our amazing growth trajectory.

Kabbage is more than a lender for small businesses; our data and technology platform is now being used as a fully branded product by other lenders, and our products are expanding. We’ve received numerous awards & recognition, including Glassdoor’s 2017 Best Places to Work, “36th fastest growing company in the US” on the INC 500 List, Fast Company’s "Top 10 most innovative companies in finance" and Forbes' "America’s Top 100 Most Promising Companies" among others.

Your mission:

Be the hands-on security expert for Kabbage. Design hardened solutions for Kabbage and its partners. Perform threat modeling and vulnerability/risk assessments. Work side-by-side with the development and systems engineering teams to ensure systems are secure.

What you'll be doing:

Make security decisions for Kabbage’s application architecture to identify flaws and vulnerabilities.
Conduct security reviews—from high-level web application architecture to OS level configuration—to meet security goals.
Identify security flaws and vulnerabilities before they’re an issue.
Lead incident response activities.
Influence Product, DevOps, and Engineering teams with risk-based judgment to mitigate vulnerabilities. Promote secure development practices to engineering and product teams.
Work with Kabbage’s external partners to ensure their security requests are feasible.
What you should have:

You’ve been a software engineer who’s worked on web apps. You read code and understand vulnerabilities in code.
You’ve worked with Engineering teams to understand the existing technical ecosystem and how to secure it.
You’ve worked with DevOps to detect vulnerabilities, monitor for malicious activity, and evolve how services are run.
You like IDS/IPS, authentication tools, scanning tools, and craft beer.
You understand networking, including wired and wireless security, firewalls, VPN, and network access control.
Patching, device management, and configuration management—been there, done that; you own this like a boss.
IAM, MFA, PKI, cryptography—you didn’t need to google any of that.
You’ve created DLP strategies.
What we're looking for in you:

Assertiveness: You can challenge the assumptions of others, then pivot to collaborating with them to make solutions truly secure.
Structured thinking: Ability to hone in on the key issues of a problem and cleanly structure a path to a solution.
Proactivity: Resourceful, has grit, and a positive “can do” attitude; acts without being told what to do.
Flexibility/adaptability: Cool with rapidly changing priorities and projects.
Follow-through: Follows-through on items without being managed.
Calm under pressure: Ability to navigate and lead the team through high-priority last minute requests and other high stress situations.
