Security Analyst - Bug Bounty
Location pin icon
Meta Security is looking for a Security Analyst to join our Bug Bounty program. You will be responsible for communicating with and validating security vulnerabilities from a community of security researchers around the globe. You will gain insights of Meta's codebase to understand the root cause of each vulnerability, and have the opportunity to play a key role in one of the largest bug bounty programs in the world. The Bug Bounty program incentivizes security researchers to search for, find and report security vulnerabilities across Meta's family of products, including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Quest. The program serves as the final level of protection per Meta’s Shift Left operating model, aiming to discover and resolve vulnerabilities that have landed in production and are at risk of being exploited, and acts as a feedback loop for other security efforts.
Security Analyst - Bug Bounty Responsibilities
  • Analyze, assess, and respond to various security vulnerabilities we receive as part of our Bug Bounty program.
  • Follow up with researchers on unclear reports.
  • Understand the root cause of security vulnerabilities to help the product team fix them.
  • Play an active role in continuing to grow and develop the bug bounty program and other internal security and privacy initiatives.
  • Own expansions to the program, including private bounties.
  • Own critical submissions to resolution - liaise a plan with product teams, advise on the right mitigation strategy.
  • Implement bug fixes and feature enhancements to the program's public and internal code base.
Minimum Qualifications
  • Familiarity with web security issues (e.g. OWASP top 10).
  • Ability to follow bug reports, reproduce and triage them.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Participation in bug bounty programs (not necessarily Meta's bug bounty program).
  • Entry-level experience with analyzing source code to find security vulnerabilities.
  • Contributions to the security community (public research, blogging, presentations, etc).
  • Experience writing in scripting languages and willingness to learn new languages.
