Security Engineer – Fleetnet

Job Expired

The Role

Come join a small team of experts building the one of the most trusted IoT platform in the world connecting Tesla backends and our customers to their cars.

We are looking for a highly motivated engineer who truly believes in security as a first principle. Companies have talked for years about a future of “connected cars.” At Tesla, we’re at the forefront of innovation by providing a complete suite of rich backend services to our exponentially growing fleets. The team is operating and developing a rich eco-system in charge of any remote interaction with the vehicles (remote control, remote diagnostic, vehicle telemetry for self-learning Autopilot algorithm, mobile apps APIs, etc.). Our mobile applications allow customers to interact with their cars via real-time, low-latency two-way communication. Today we remotely identify potential vehicle issues before a customer does—and often fix problems remotely too. To this end information and product security is of the utmost importance.

We are looking for a highly motivated security software engineer specialized in web services and distributed systems. The platform you help us build will scale novel functionality to millions of Tesla devices and users.

  • Partner with cross-functional teams to deliver widely impactful security initiatives
  • Demonstrate excellent judgement in prioritizing security efforts to mitigate the appropriate risks


  • Few years of experience in security engineering or backend systems with security focus

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in CS, CE, EE or the equivalent in experience
  • Cloud Security knowledge, need to have understanding/experience with Kubernetes
  • Demonstrated success contributing to scalable web applications
  • Experience in web application development or infrastructure/code auditing
  • Breadth of technical experience across various infrastructure and security areas and running in large production environments
  • Deep understanding of mobile & web application security threats, exploits, prevention
  • Proficiency in networking concepts (firewalls, load balancers, etc)
  • Keeps up with industry trends in security technology and threats
  • Strong belief in acquiring and spreading knowledge through mentorship and acting like an owner
  • Practical knowledge of applied cryptography and common attacks against modern cryptographic algorithms (encryption at rest, TLS, hashing, etc)
