The Security Architecture team's purpose is to ensure all data platforms, products and security tools conform to PayPal security standards. Our goal is to develop standards that will provide the highest levels of protection to our customers' data and ensure safety and trust across the enterprise. To achieve that we work with engineers across the entire PayPal platform to:

  • Develop and document Target-state and Multi-year Security Architecture Strategies
  • Collaborate with Teams to Craft and Publish Compliant Design Patterns
  • Contribute Security domain expertise to Platform, Product, Database, Infrastructure, and Frameworks teams around PayPal
  • Supply Solution Architecture Services to SAEO Solution Roadmap

Day to Day Responsibilities

As a security architect, you will be directly responsible for building overarching architectural strategies for major security controls, such as activity logging, hardening, configuration management, password management, access management, secure data movement and more. Your task will be to deliver high level designs and approved architectural patterns for business activities. Your designs will deliver critical guidance for the planning process and provide teams a clear direction for implementation of their security controls.

Qualifications

  • You are an excellent collaborator. This role requires working across teams to build consensus on the final design. You are open to ideas while also guiding teams to a conclusive architectural strategy.
  • You have strong technical experience coupled with demonstrated experience in secure infrastructure or application designs. You are able to define and discuss technical strategies, potential issues, and effectiveness from the infrastructure level up to the interactions between software components and software behavior.

If you are excited by having a marker in your hand and whiteboarding potential designs, this job could be right for you.
  • You are comfortable with presentations. You will build trust and a sense of “we have a plan” by documenting and presenting architectural designs at various times to various audiences.
  • Experience with Public Cloud implementations and Zero Trust environments an advantage
