Security Analyst - (Webflow)

Webflow Full Time Other

Remote Job Description

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

As a Security Analyst on Webflow's Systems and Integration team, you will lead the efforts to evolve our infrastructure to meet future compliance and certification needs. You will establish corporate security requirements by evaluating business strategies and requirements, researching information security standards, performing risk assessments, identifying integration issues, and provide recommendations for remediating identified risk. Additionally, you will lead the review and formal approval process for policy updates. Key responsibilities will be to ensure Information Security Policy and Standard documents meet or exceed industry standards, compliance requirements and customer expectations, coordinating internal and external audits, and maintaining the Information Security program documentation. 

As a Security Analyst, you’ll … 

  • Act as an advocate of information security policies, standards and as a mechanism to enable the business effectively while managing risk appropriately.
  • Act as a Webflow internal subject matter expert and work with product and engineering teams on security procedures regarding governance, monitoring, and remediation practices.
  • Implement continuous monitoring solutions to understand and explain security risks and mitigation techniques.
  • Partner with internal teams to establish preventative controls to support compliance via automation.
  • Stay current on cloud security policies, standards, regulations, and best practices.
  • Assist in the implementation of a formalized information security awareness offerings. Support annual renewal and budgeting needs.
  • Work with different departments to create necessary awareness, documentation, and security training for all personnel
  • Work with the BizOps team to respond to customer questions regarding security, compliance, and resilience.
That said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encouraged you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to tackle passion projects outside of your role responsibilities. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a Security Analyst if you:

  • Certification in AWS, Security+, CCSP, CISM, or CISSP. If you don't have one of these certifications, you need to have the desire and ability to earn one of them within your first 6 months on the job.
  • Familiarity with Infrastructure and Platform Services such as IAM, compute (i. e. EC2, GCE), AWS Key Management Service/Google Cloud Key Management Service, storage (volume/object) etc.
  • Knowledge with native cloud security services AWS Trusted Advisor, Amazon Inspector/Google Cloud Security Scanner
  • Experience with monitoring tools such as AWS CloudWatch/Google Cloud Monitoring, Splunk etc.
  • Awareness with Management Services such as AWS CloudWatch/Google Cloud Monitoring, AWS Lambda/Google Cloud Functions and AWS Config
  • Familiarity with cloud security frameworks CSA, NIST, ISO, CIS etc.
  • Experience with compliance frameworks such as SOC2 and ISO27001
  • Technical skills to identify and assess cloud security vulnerabilities and risks
  • Expertise in researching & evaluating identified vulnerabilities and risks posed to the organization’s information and systems
  • Produce and provide appropriate reporting to stakeholders 
  • Demonstrated experience in administration/management of continuous monitoring solutions
However, even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running.
