Sisense is the unified, collaborative data platform for professional data teams. We help thousands of data teams tackle increasingly complex data challenges, from ETL through predictive analytics.

Our expectations for ourselves are ever-increasing, and we're looking for someone to help us along that journey. If you love creating delightful user experiences for technical and non-technical users and delivering company-changing outcomes, this role is for you!

We're looking for a hands-on security engineer to play a key role in Sisense's security program. As a member of the security team, you will automate day-to-day tasks, collect data to report on the success of our protective controls, and write new detection logic. You will work closely with other members of the security and broader engineering organizations to enhance and support our security efforts.


Customers trust us with their most important data. They use Sisense to query everything from revenue metrics to the personally identifiable information of their users. In Sisense, we use the edge of technology for our product, for our internal services, and to enhance our security posture. We are a global company, and we believe that diversity and providing equal opportunities are great for expanding our ways of thinking.

You will partner with engineering, IT, and others to truly empower the employees at Sisense. You'll be expected to support solutions by applying risk-based security touchpoints that are both highly secure and highly functional while moving at the speed of the business. Enabling everyone at Sisense to keep moving fast while continuously increasing the strength of our security may be your greatest challenge. While some capabilities are already in place that will need to be learned and maintained, there will be a need to deploy new emerging security solutions to proactively and reactively protect our employees and customers.
