  • Product security is a high priority for all Dow Jones products, so knowledge of security principles is highly desired. You will also proactively work with the Security team to address any security vulnerabilities uncovered via our penetration testing.

  • You will be expected to participate in technical discussions about technology, infrastructure and consider the pros and cons of a technology choice based on business value, scalability, maintainability and project delivery performance.

  • You will be expected to be capable of driving toward solutions independently, seeking feedback when appropriate.

  • You will be expected to maintain and share knowledge in emerging technologies and tools in the industry.
