Corporate Information Security

Company Description

Block is one company built from many blocks, all united by the same purpose of economic empowerment. The blocks that form our foundational teams — People, Finance, Counsel, Hardware, Information Security, Platform Infrastructure Engineering, and more — provide support and guidance at the corporate level. They work across business groups and around the globe, spanning time zones and disciplines to develop inclusive People policies, forecast finances, give legal counsel, safeguard systems, nurture new initiatives, and more. Every challenge creates possibilities, and we need different perspectives to see them all. Bring yours to Block.

Job Description

The Block Corporate Security Team helps to secure the business processes and systems that our global workforce depends upon. CorpSec Engineers are highly skilled on the risks inherent in the business processes, interactions with third parties, threats to employee endpoints, corporate data center resources, and cloud (SaaS / PaaS) solutions employed across Block.

We are looking for someone who can quickly digest new concepts, business requirements, associated risks, and can collaborate with their partner teams to identify what risks we should accept, which we should mitigate, how, and why. This means broad security knowledge, an ability to gain technical depth quickly when necessary, and the soft skills (collaboration, ability to communicate security risks to non-engineers) and leadership required to effectively collaborate across many teams at once.

You will:

  • Develop security policies, requirements, and guidelines to address corporate information security risk
  • Work directly with foundational teams to audit SaaS / IaaS / PaaS business systems
  • Perform vendor risk assessment for third-party solutions that address security threats
  • Establish and maintain workforce identity capabilities through single sign-on (SSO) and MFA
  • Perform threat modeling exercises with business partners to identify risks in corporate systems
  • Communicate, document, prioritize, and drive security remediation to completion
  • Influence secure designs and roadmaps for effective risk management
  • Work with a dynamic, fast-paced, and geographically-distributed team of experts

Qualifications

  • Five years of demonstrated security & risk management experience working in a technology-focused company
  • Deep technical understanding of common security vulnerabilities and risks
  • Strong knowledge of risk countermeasures and compensating controls
  • Facility with empathetic interpersonal interactions via video conference
  • A thoughtful approach to technical analysis and ability to quickly assess new platforms

Nice to have:

  • Experience working in a remote team environment
  • Curiosity and interest in learning new technologies
  • Passion to enable everyone to participate and thrive in the economy
