Overview

The confidentiality, integrity, availability and accessibility of Intuit's data and systems are of paramount importance to our organization. The trust that our customers place in our ability to protect our critical assets and information is a top priority. Anticipating, managing, mitigating and eliminating both fraud and risk are at the forefront of Intuit's enterprise wide approach to planning for, preventing, detecting, responding to and recovering from insider threat.

The Principal Software Engineer for Intuit's Insider Threat Program is responsible for technologies and solutions to manage the risk to our organization that comes from people within the organization. These individuals could be employees, former employees, contractors, or business associates, or others with access to information about the organization's security practices, data and computer systems. It involves current or former employees, contractors and other business partners who have or had authorized access to the company's data, systems, tools, and technologies and have intentionally misused that access.

Insider breaches are among the costliest and hardest to detect of all data breaches. While organizations focus significant resources on the mitigation of external threat actors, insider risks are likely to pose an even greater financial and reputational threat to the enterprise.

To address the growing concern of insider threat, our team is focused on five key areas: preparation, protection, detection, response, and recovery. The Insider Threat Architect will have full responsibility for developing features, platforms, models and capabilities to proactively identify sources and patterns of insider threat/fraud.

Come join the Intuit Information Security team as a Principal Software Engineer. We are developing cutting edge Data Protection and Financial Fraud prevention services that are central to all Intuit offerings.
