We are currently seeking a highly motivated, detail oriented, and customer focused individual to play a key hands-on role on the Cyber Defense team.  This role requires a high degree of technical security expertise with static/dynamic code scanning tools, software threat modeling, and modern cloud development and delivery platforms (i.e. AWS). The selected candidate will be responsible for progressing Security Capabilities within DevOps, including automated security testing, continuous integration, and automated build deployments.

As a member of a high-performing security team, this individual will directly work with development teams and act as a security subject matter expert (SME). The selected candidate must be passionate about their trade and have a high degree of ethics, ownership, and motivation.

Responsibilities include (but not limited to):

  • Developing and deploying the right automated solutions that inject security activities, at the right time/depth, into the CI/CD pipelines during builds, testing and deployment.
  • Optimizing security-related rules/configurations for effectiveness and to reduce false positives.
  • Serving as a security expert in application development, cloud, database, microservice design and container technologies.
  • Developing security-related user-stories and software-centric threat models.
  • Triaging security issues with development teams and providing guidance on how best to resolve them.
  • Leading the day-to-day administration of the CI/CD security infrastructure.
  • Maintaining a deep understanding of current threat, vulnerabilities, attacks, countermeasures and how to respond effectively to them while providing training to the rest of the team on these items.
  • Taking ownership and driving forward the capabilities and maturity of the Secure CI/CD program by identifying appropriate technologies, policies, communication channels, and relationships with internal partners.
  • Developing meaningful metrics to enable rapid developer feedback and metrics for business stakeholders and software managers. 

Location is not a barrier for this role and while our preference would be to have a chosen candidate with onsite capabilities in one of our corporate headquarters – we are open to remote employment within the Eastern United States for an experienced candidate.
