Eigen Labs is more than just a leading name in the blockchain space. We’re the driving force behind EigenLayer, a game-changing solution that revolutionizes crypto-economic security. Imagine a world where blockchain projects break free from the shackles of the scaling trilemma and capital limitations.

We’re building a platform to deliver security to novel distributed applications. In today's blockchain ecosystem, each service is typically secured by its own tokenized trust-network. With EigenLayer, services can build upon the established security of the Ethereum trust network, unlocking untold scalability while maintaining security and decentralization.


We are seeking a senior infrastructure security engineer to work on a variety of security challenges with a particular focus on securing cloud-based systems, performing architectural reviews and threat models, and managing access controls across a variety of systems. This role requires significant collaboration with engineering and product stakeholders and an ability to make good trade-offs between security and business needs. You will be leading initiatives to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of our infrastructure.


  • Develop and implement security policies, procedures, and standards to protect our cloud-based infrastructure as well as other off-chain systems, including third-party systems we integrate with.
  • Conduct internal security assessments, audits, and vulnerability testing to identify potential security risks and mitigate them.
  • Collaborate with other teams to ensure the security of the entire EigenLayer ecosystem with a focus on off-chain systems.
  • Work to reliably automate security-related functionality, including contributions to infrastructure-as-code, building secure CI pipelines, and designing systems to detect misconfigurations or security issues
  • Develop and maintain incident response plans to handle security breaches and other security incidents.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest security trends and developments to regularly incorporate best practices


  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Security, or a related field.
  • 3+ years of experience in information security, with a focus on infrastructure or cloud security.
  • Experience leading large-scale security programs either within an organization or across one or more user communities.
  • Strong experience with architectural reviews, threat modeling, penetration testing, and other offensive and defensive security techniques.
  • Experience securing environments that are built with Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, Cloudflare, and other similar systems.
  • Experience with building out secure continuous integration pipelines, in particular with GitHub Actions
  • Experience writing code in Go or via infrastructure-as-code tools like Terraform.
  • Excellent written, and verbal communication skills.
  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional and geographically remote teams, partners, and community members.

You enjoy contributing in a team environment

  • Proficient and thoughtful with asynchronous and synchronous communication, giving and receiving feedback, and working independently and with a team
  • Proactively contribute to discussions about technical issues, sprint and roadmap planning, and improving team processes

You want to help the crypto ecosystem improve the everyday lives of billions

  • Excited to learn and develop technology in the blockchain space, even if you don’t have crypto development experience yet.
  • Recognize the culture and community in crypto are different from other professional software industries, and you want to embrace and improve it.


  • Hands-on security experience in the blockchain industry
  • Familiarity with securely managing sensitive key material
