Trust is the #1 company value at Salesforce. Our Infrastructure Assurance team ensures the security of the platform and systems, which make Salesforce run. We are a team of curious minds that specialize in secure design, assessment, research, and tool development.  We work in a challenging, large scale, multi-tenant environment that includes both private data-centers and public cloud solutions.

Your role will be to work side by side with teams throughout the company to solve challenging security design problems and provide feedback on proposed systems and architectures. The scale and complexity of Salesforce’s operation is massive; in order to provide the impact needed you should look to light tool development and automation as a primary tool in accomplishing your day-to-day work. You will work closely with a team of experienced security engineers and researchers to identify, assess, and communicate risk to the rest of the organization. You should have a willingness to collaborate and identify creative solutions to challenging security problems.

We both break and help build.

You should have a good understanding of networks, Linux based operating systems, distributed systems, and modern service architectures. Most importantly you should be curious and willing to learn and apply your understanding of security to new things. Salesforce believes in contributing back to the security brain-trust by speaking about our work at conferences and Open Sourcing solutions that might benefit the community. You will have the opportunity to influence not only security at Salesforce, but the state-of-the-art and industry at large.
