We report into the CISO while working closely with development/engineering and other teams across the organization. Our colleagues depend on us to be application, network and host security pros. We specialize in defining security requirements, performing security assessments of our internal applications, and providing developers with remediation advice. On any given day we're pulled in to evaluate a new system, a proposed network change, or provide guidance on security/coding best practices.

  • Work with development teams to find ways to integrate security testing into the SDLC
  • Use static analysis to identify vulnerabilities in applications
  • Use third party tools and APIs to assess the security of applications and infrastructure, measure compliance, etc.

You'll Need To Have:

  • Experience developing applications and integrating with 3rd party APIs
  • Experience with common build systems such as CMake and Make
  • Experience with continuous integration and test environments such as Jenkins and SonarQube
  • Proficiency in reading, writing, and auditing compiled languages like C/C++/Java and interpreted languages like Python or Javascript, and capability to pick up new languages/technologies
  • An interest in security and familiarity with common security vulnerabilities and attack vectors
  • Familiarity with public cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP) and private cloud infrastructure

We'd Love To See:

  • Experience using and customizing security static analysis tools such as Fortify, AppScan Source, Coverity, or Checkmarx
  • Experience in software security testing, methodologies, and frameworks
  • Experience as a consultant at a highly technical information security consultancy
  • The ability to communicate complicated technical issues and the risks they pose to programmers, network engineers, system administrators and management
