They work across business groups and around the globe, spanning time zones and disciplines to develop inclusive People policies, forecast finances, give legal counsel, safeguard systems, nurture new initiatives, and more. Every challenge creates possibilities, and we need different perspectives to see them all. Bring yours to Block.

  • 1+ years of technical industry experience as a programmer, developer, software engineer (SWE), or similar job roles.
  • A strong desire to learn about security and grow your career in the direction of InfoSec (prior experience in InfoSec not required).

Technologies we use and teach:
  • Ruby, Java
