  • You will partner with engineering and operation teams to integrate mitigation controls into continuous integration, delivery and deployment processes.
  • Work on essential areas to develop security baseline for cloud, container, and application and integrate it into the CI/CD pipeline.
  • Implement security architecture, methods, and controls required to meet security, compliance, and audit requirements (NIST controls, SOC2, etc.).

The qualifications you need:

  • 3+ years previous experience in information security.
  • 2+ years’ experience working within software development.
  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science/Information Security/Cyber Security or equivalent.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, as well as social skills including the ability to articulate to both technical and non-technical audiences.
