SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars.
SECURITY ENGINEER (THREAT DETECTION)
SpaceX is targeted by sophisticated adversaries determined to attain or disrupt the cutting-edge technology it develops. The security operations team is seeking technically excellent engineers with a strong understanding of these adversaries. The environment in which you will operate is used to launch rockets and control spacecraft. You will be tasked with detecting threat actors in this environment before they can disrupt or deny SpaceX’s mission.
Your output will be detections and detection mechanisms that provide comprehensive coverage of both known and unknown threats. Your work will involve writing structured queries against large datasets of endpoint and network telemetry, as well as building custom threat detection tooling and frameworks. We encourage the continual practice of adversary emulation to identify novel detections as well as validate the effectiveness of our threat detection posture. If you are interested in detecting and disrupting sophisticated threat actors in order to secure SpaceX’s mission to Mars, let’s talk!
