Our Zeebs are passionate about learning, growing, & working together to tackle exciting problems.
We're seeking a Senior Information Security Engineer to help us secure, maintain and grow a world-class insurance buying experience.

We are looking for a versatile, expert cloud security professional who loves to make an impact through cross-organizational efforts to keep The Zebra secure and aligned with various state and federal laws.
While we are open to remote work across the contingent US, we are still in the process of establishing our company to support work in all states!

  • Analyze IT requirements and provide objective advice on the use of IT security requirements and controls.
  • Ensure proper DevSecOps practices are being implemented.
  • Act as a leader to secure our security posture.
  • Implement efficient security controls to help improve security posture. (e.g. WAF, DLP, SIEM, TVM, SAST/DAST, DevSecOps, etc.)
  • Know the latest with industry trends.
  • Monitor and respond to regulatory developments and industry standard processes in a timely manner.

    What We're Looking For:
    As we evaluate candidates across all roles, we look for folks who have a strong sense of ownership, great communication and collaboration skills, and a dedication to continuous improvement.

    • Experience with DevSecOps
    • Experience with cloud technologies (AWS, Azure, etc.)

    • Experience with Infrastructure as Code
    • Ability to multitask and prioritize contending demands
    • Expertise in writing run books, and complexity analysis
    • Exceptional organizational skills
    • Pride in the quality of work

      Experience that will Impress the Heck Out of Us:

      • CISSP, CCSP, CISA, CRISC, CISM, or AWS Security
      • Application security experience
      • Experience with SIEM platforms

        Benefits & Perks:
