About Rippling

Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage their HR & IT — from payroll and benefits, to employee computers and apps — all in one, modern system. 

In just 90-seconds, a company can set up (or disable) an employee’s payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps, like Gmail, Microsoft Office, and Slack. It’s the only platform that truly unifies every employee system, and automates all of the administrative work. 

Rippling is headquartered in San Francisco and has raised over $200M from top-tier investors, including Founders Fund, Greenoaks Capital, Coatue Management, Kleiner Perkins, and YCombinator.

What You'll Do:

  • Confidently and intelligently respond to security incidents and programmatically prevent the same type of incidents from repeating.
  • Engage with internal teams to provide timely remediation of issues, escalating internally as necessary to ensure appropriate levels of urgency and engagement.
  • Promote security throughout Rippling and build good working relationships within the team and with others across Rippling.
  • Signal tune security monitoring tools and automate responses to common security events.
  • POC new security tools for security monitoring and incident response
  • Design and coordinate playbooks to respond to security events that involve multiple teams across the organization.
