Security Analyst, Compliance

- This position is open to partial and full remote from France and the UK -
With our 10,000 customers and billions of personal queries over terabytes of data, Algolia is taking security very seriously. It’s one of the founding pillars of the solution we offer our users. Our customers' data is our #1 priority, and we have comprehensive and always evolving practices for safeguarding it without losing flexibility.
We need someone compassionate, innovative, open-minded and motivated to take on the role of maintaining and improving those processes, as Security Analyst.
As a member of the Security team, with senior engineers, you will study the working engineering processes and implement new ways of working, new tools, new controls, balancing productivity of our software engineers against the best practices of security compliance. Cooperation with all sides will be key, as a forbidding process is a bypassed process, and a bypassed process is a security incident in the making.
As a Security Analyst you will work on integrating these new security processes at the heart of all activities, to increase the impact of security frameworks on our products and to allow for process control automations.
