We are looking for an experienced Network Security Engineer who will help us maintain the team's highest level of service and keep our network security levels ahead of our business demands, while pushing for more standardisation through automation.

Jane Street's numerous distributed systems are built on an agile, reliable, multi-vendor network infrastructure that supports all traffic profiles from trading to internet connectivity. Enabling those systems to operate in a secure and auditable manner is a key mission of the Network Security team.

  • Working closely with our Network Engineering team on DMZ designs and deployments
  • Contributing to support tasks and actively taking steps to improve the team's ability to monitor our systems effectively, through scripting and/or conveying requirements to our dedicated developers

Getting the details right and keeping good records will be critical in this role. Striving to improve the team through documentation and contributing to our monitoring and automation systems will be a must.
About You
