About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

As a Engineering Manager for Cloud Security, you’ll get to:

  • Lead a 5-8 person team of engineers and accelerate their growth by providing thoughtful feedback, technical mentorship and effectively manage performance.
  • Work with engineering leadership and our CISO to set the roadmap and technical vision for the team regularly assessing threat intelligence and using a risk based approach to prioritize impactful projects
  • Champion best security patterns and practices throughout engineering
  • Ensure we have best in class tooling, alerting, incident response, policies and procedures in an ever growing cloud footprint and changing industry landscape
  • Search for the truth in project conceptualization and development, ensuring designs and implementations are fully aligned with our security strategy
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • At least 3+ years of experience managing a security focused infrastructure team
  • At least 5 years experience building or securing modern, high-scale/complex distributed systems and services in the cloud using tools such as Kubernetes, Istio, HashiCorp Vault, Splunk Enterprise Security, etc.
  • Experience in cloud security assessments, container security, vulnerability remediation, and able to communicate how these fit into to a broad system security strategy

You might also have:

  • Experience leading a SOC
  • Experience in a highly targeted and regulated environment
  • Regular participation in purple team activities
