Posted Jul 28, 2016 - Requisition No. 53056

We protect Bloomberg.

The Security Architecture team is dedicated to making our products and technologies as secure as possible- design through development. We report into the CISO but work closely with developer 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 and know how to perform security assessments of 3rd party applications and our internal ones. On any given day we're pulled in to evaluate a process, network design or access control.

We'll trust you to:

  • Work with developers, system/network administrators, and other colleagues to ensure secure design, development, and implementation of applications and networks
  • Perform security design/architecture reviews and code reviews of large applications, systems and networks
  • Provide remediation guidance and recommendations to programmers and administrators
  • Define security best practices and standards

You'll need to have:

  • Experience working with development teams to build secure solutions
  • Experience breaking down complex systems and applications to find flaws
  • Proficiency in reading, writing, and auditing C, C++, or Java, and the ability to pick up new languages/technologies
  • Knowledge of common web application and mobile frameworks
  • Familiarity with common vulnerabilities and attack vectors
  • Knowledge of ubiquitous encryption technologies (PGP, SSH, SSL, etc.) and common protocols (RADIUS, LDAP, KERBEROS, SAML, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of secure network and system design
  • The ability to communicate complicated technical issues and the risks they pose to R&D programmers, network engineers, system administrators and management

We'd love to see:

  • Experience as a consultant at a highly technical information security consultancy
  • Experience working as a technical security architect or related security role in a company where there is a commitment to information security and technology
  • Experience as a developer
