Pre-IPO Security Tech company
You will become the first dedicated Security Engineer. Does that mean they haven’t been taking security seriously? No - They have someone in a dedicated security leadership role that is very technical (they helped build a tokenization vault holding millions of credit cards).
Historically, security has been split up and been the responsibility across teams in the organisation. This is a sign of their maturity and success that they are building out a security engineering team. They are about to embark on a huge shift from an infrastructure play to entirely cloud-based and are looking for someone (the first in a growing team) to work on AWS Security Best Practices.
This is a brilliant opportunity for someone to learn on the job if you have the right foundational skills.
What skills, experience and competencies are required?
• Commercial AWS experience
• A demonstrable interest in security
