Job Description

The New York Times is seeking an ambitious, passionate and motivated analyst to join the team that protects our data, communications, journalists and sources.

Who are we?

Information Security helps prevent The Times from becoming news.

Our team is responsible for everything from analyzing malware and tracking threat actors to penetration testing and educating staff on modern threats. As an analyst on the Defense team, you’ll have the opportunity to be exposed to all this while working with a talented group whose focus is eliminating threats to our environment.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for an InfoSec Analyst with experience in protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of assets and data. You should have experience working with tools similar to ones we use (SIEM, EDR, IDS, maybe even SOAR). We want someone who has a passion for both information security and The Times’ mission, a strong desire to learn and willingness to share your knowledge with others. Finally, we’d prefer that you have experience with technical or policy writing but this is not required.

What you’ll do

  • Identify, analyze and remediate threats in our environment

  • Identify gaps in existing security architecture and recommend improvements

  • Implement tools and processes to improve our ability to detect and respond to threats

  • Define and create security policies, incident response plans and security playbooks

  • Be part of an on-call rotation to analyze and resolve critical security issues and incidents

  • Participate in learning reviews following security incidents and deliver technical reports

What you have

  • 3+ years of relevant security experience

  • Strong analytical, critical thinking and decision making skills

  • Fundamental understanding of computer and networking concepts

  • Experience with scripting languages, regular expressions and APIs

  • Experience with web, cloud and virtual environments, including AWS and GCP

  • Proficient in technical writing and able to communicate effectively to all levels of staff

You may even have

  • Experience or knowledge of Security Orchestration, Automation and Response

  • Ability to write / review Information Security policies

Benefits and Perks:

  • Support our original, independent and reported journalism.

  • We provide great health, dental, vision and life insurance for employees and their families

  • We support responsible retirement planning with a generous 401(k) company match.

  • We offer a great parental leave.

  • We are committed to career development and ongoing learning supported by a formal mentoring program as well as $8,000 annually for tuition reimbursement.

  • We have frequent panel discussions and talks by newsmakers and industry leaders.

  • Join a community committed to the richness of diversity, experiences and talents in the world we cover, supported by a variety of employee resource groups.
