  • Research and test additional security processes and products.
  • Stay current with new threats and exploits and assist in adjusting the company's security posture accordingly.

What We're Looking For

  • At least 3 years of cybersecurity experience.
  • Experience with application security tooling and processes, including code review, static code analysis, penetration testing, risk management, etc.
  • An understanding of best practices and how to implement them at a business-wide level.
  • Experience planning, researching and developing security standards and procedures.
  • Strong programming/scripting skills (Python, Golang, Swift, and/or Kotlin strongly desirable.)
  • Familiarity with AWS and web-related technologies (strongly desirable.)
  • Familiarity with Kubernetes and related orchestration technologies.
