Technical Security Engineer at Rivian (Washington DC)
Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract.
As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations.
The Technical Security Engineer will be responsible for Rivian’s physical security technology stack. You will support the architecture, health, programming, and development cycles of our hardware and applications – from frontend to backend. You’ll drive innovation and operational efficiencies by deploying emerging technologies, building deep integrations, and creating frictionless experiences for our end users. While no two days will end up looking the same, generally speaking you’ll be responsible for the following things:
- Ensure operational availability and development of Rivian’s physical security technology stack, including all programming, integrations, dataflows, and dependencies
- Program, configure, and harden all technical security devices, apps, and platforms
- Provide L2/L3 escalation support for our technical security maintenance team, GSOC/SOC, and security operations teams
- Maintain databases, datasets, and logical access to all technical security systems
- Support cross functional business teams with requests for workflows, features, and integrations
- Foster close collaboration with partners in IT, including our Cybersecurity, Networking Infrastructure, Platform, and Support teams
- Drive heavy R&D cycles for emerging physical security technologies
Some teams have strict requirements about certifications, degrees, and things like that. Not us! We’re more interested in the unique perspectives and expertise you’ll bring to the team, rather than acronyms on your resume. However, you’ll be much more likely to be successful in this role if these bullet points seem like a good description of you:
- You’ve been a technical security engineer for a while now, probably in the realm of 5+ years
- Your technical skills are wide and deep. You’re a master of physical security technology, including all core IT dependencies, and you’re a wizard at things like querying, scripting, and hardware/software dev
- You enjoy building things. If we handed you a pile of parts and a soldering iron you would build us something great!
- You’re really good at deploying resilient, scalable, solutions that are frictionless for end users
- You frequently get praise from your peers and coworkers about your communication skills, both written and verbal
- You have effective methods to handle stress and pressure, even in high intensity or emotionally charged situations and environments
- You're meticulous and demand perfection
