You will not be an expert in all these fields, but you will be able to assess risk with a security best practices mindset and then prioritise response activities accordingly.

You will leverage multiple threat sources and tooling to identify these risks, including, but not limited to, cloud security posture management, cloud workload protection, OS level vulnerability scanning, web application scanning, penetration testing, vulnerability scanning within a CI/CD pipeline, IaC scanning and so on. You’ll work with the rest of the Security organisation in helping to secure our delivery pipeline and embed security into our methodology by designing and deploying controls to detect threats and vulnerabilities in our on-premise and public cloud infrastructure, as well as protecting our end users and corporate IT infrastructure.

  • Managing, reviewing, maintaining, improving and monitoring existing vulnerability management tooling
  • Translate and implement relevant security standards/policies in restrictive environments (CIS/PCI/FedRAMP)
  • Identify and mitigate risks, vulnerabilities, and security gaps, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems
  • Provide subject matter expertise within a number of key cloud security domains
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to design, implement, and maintain secure cloud architectures and solutions
  • Implement and manage security tooling and solutions to enhance the security posture of containerised applications and the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure
  • As a member of the Infrastructure Security team you will also be involved in managing existing security tooling, including but not limited to, endpoint security, email security, network security and web application firewalls (WAF), both on-premise and in the cloud.

Preferred Skills

  • Experience with Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and cloud workload protection in multi-cloud environments
  • Experience deploying and managing security infrastructure using Terraform
  • Clear and demonstrable understanding of how to assess the actual risk posed by a vulnerability finding, taken in terms of impact, likelihood, mitigating controls and the environment in which it’s found
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to engage stakeholders at all levels within an organisation
  • You will possess strong technical skills and capabilities in technical writing, security architecture, technology implementation and information security standards frameworks.
  • Making informed decisions and/or consolidate appropriate information to support informed decision making and strategic direction will come naturally to you too
