Job Code: 4913
Employee Status: Regular

Requisition ID: 95124

Stanford's Information Security Office is looking for an Information Security Software Engineer to work with our small, tightly-knit team on a wide range of security-related projects. The Information Security Office is a high-profile team, and is one of the few departments with university-wide purview, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to share and shine. We operate with a high degree of autonomy, expecting each of our contributors to bring their own special talents to bear on the tough challenges facing the university. It isn't easy doing information security at a large university, but we have a great time doing it.Trust, innovation, and fun are at the heart of what we do.

The Security Operations team within the Information Security Office is small but mighty with an entrepreneurial spirit, and we want you to help us grow and to grow along with us. We build, maintain, and use security-related tools to protect the university. We have many implementations that we are proud of: network detection and response, chatops-based operations, an annual cybersecurity festival, and more. With a small team, we need to automate as much as we can, and you will help us to eliminate toil. We value training and growth and provide a generous training budget and opportunities for both technical and leadership training to everyone. Every team member is the leader of the services they are responsible for and everyone contributes to our team strategy and initiatives.

Scale the Knowledge (If Not the Solution)

As an educational institution, we value knowledge sharing and didactic exchange. Here are other activities relating to your practice.
  • Collaborate with any of the 1,500 members of the campus IT community
  • Join our IT community, attend lunch-and-learns, IT unconference and give chalk talks
  • Share your discoveries and experience with other engineering and ops teams within our university and peer institutes
  • Mentor emerging talent
  • Make presentations at conferences

Remote Work

We maintain a remote-work-friendly environment, fully supporting our full-time-remote and hybrid on-site/remote staff. This position is eligible for full-time remote work from the U.S., with periodic visits to campus.
