About the job

There's no such thing as a "safe system" - only safer systems. Our Security team works to create and maintain the safest operating environment for Google's users and developers. As a Security Engineer, you help protect network boundaries, keep computer systems and network devices hardened against attacks and provide security services to protect highly sensitive data like passwords and customer information. Security Engineers work hands-on with network equipment and actively monitor our systems for attacks and intrusions. You also work with software engineers to proactively identify and fix security flaws and vulnerabilities.

As Google's products handle information at a massive scale, we need to anticipate and protect against attackers targeting Google or our users. As a Information Security Engineer, you'll perform realistic offensive security exercises to simulate real attacks, to test and improve our detection and response capabilities, and to identify how attackers could infiltrate and move inside our infrastructure.

You will work closely with members of the blue teams to improve our detection capabilities, and other parts of security team and affected product teams to design defense-in-depth controls that limit attackers' ability to move inside our network.


  • Work with the team to plan and execute realistic offensive security exercises.
  • Build tools and infrastructure to support our exercises.
  • Design controls and improvements to sharpen our capabilities to defend against attackers in close cooperation with the teams responsible for implementing them.
  • Document and present results to a variety of target audiences, ranging from highly technical engineers over non-technical subject matter experts to senior leadership.
  • Perform technical security assessments, code audits, design reviews and Red team exercises.
