Cybersecurity Jobs All Jobs

Infosec has critical responsibilities at Roblox: Engineering and designing secure systems from inception to operationalization; setting policies and process; training peer engineering teams in secure methods and ways.  The Systems Security Lead will have a critical role in leading and mentoring the Systems Security function in Roblox Security.  Prototyping secure DevOps pipelines, deployment configurations and images.  Managing network vulnerability management, threat/intel tooling, and security incident response. This position will also be a key contributor in improving our compliance reporting and posture for PCI and privacy, demonstrating efficient reporting and self-healing automation via security- and privacy-by-design.  Finally, the Security Infrastructure engineering function will have major responsibilities in creating solutions for InfoSec program domains — partnering with our peer teams on requirements and driving build-or-buy decisions.

The Systems Security Lead should also have excellent collaboration and communication skills.  The Security teams partner closely with each other, and also must engage technical partners all across the org and at all levels to achieve good solutions among competing demands.  This requires subject matter depth, business maturity and acumen, and ability to relate to other departments’ needs.

As an early InfoSec Engineer, you will have the opportunity to be an innovator and foundational member on the InfoSec team at Roblox.  We are looking for smart people who work well with others who want to apply their passion for protecting communities to grow a leading-edge security program.  Come join us in building the best trusted all-ages gaming and exchange platform.
