Our drivers and passengers entrust Lyft with their personal information and travel details to get where they're going and expect us to keep that data safe. Lyft's security team leads efforts across the company to ensure our systems are secure and worthy of our users' trust.
The security team designs and builds Lyft's security architecture, consults with other teams as they build and launch new products and features, proactively plans for the unexpected, and responds to incidents that occur. Our work affects the entire company and takes place at all levels of the stack, from infrastructure to web application security, as well as mobile apps, IT, and autonomous vehicles. We try to approach security from a software engineering standpoint. We believe in scaling security through automation and tooling and we ship frequently.

About the role:
The mission: Empower the company to make informed, prioritized and automated security decisions. Democratize threat intelligence along with “assume breach” mindset across Lyft to improve our ability to predict, sustain, investigate and recover from threats.
We’re looking for the right person to join our team, ingest existing threat intel along with stimulating new learnings by performing red team operations, and move us along our maturity journey. What makes this scalable is that each intel source must be automated and integrated into our risk management framework. Our grand vision is a live dashboard that we can look at at any point and know the current status of any or all of our risks and controls. In short, we’re building a robot army that constantly validates our current security status. Don’t you want to live in this beautiful world?
