We are the security engineering team, skilled in cybersecurity, cloud security, application security, and regulatory compliance. Our global distribution allows us to leverage unique experiences and skillsets to build and operate security services that safeguard our platform. We prioritize a proactive approach to prevent security issues and stay ahead of potential threats, ensuring the continuous protection of our services.

In this role, you will be responsible for developing and optimizing logging pipelines within AWS EKS and GCP GKE environments, ensuring efficient log collection and storage. You will conduct thorough assessments of cloud and infrastructure security, identifying and correcting misconfigurations to enhance overall security posture. Additionally, you will establish and improve CI/CD pipelines, integrating robust security measures and best practices throughout the software development lifecycle. Your expertise will help ensure secure, reliable, and scalable operations across our cloud and development environments.

In this role, you’ll:

Develop and Optimize Logging Pipelines in AWS EKS and GCP GKE Environments:

  • Create and refine centralized logging systems to collect logs from diverse sources like nodes, containers, and applications.

  • Implement log collection and aggregation using tools such as Fluentd, Fluent Bit, or Logstash.

  • Connect logging systems to storage and analysis platforms including Amazon CloudWatch, Google Cloud Logging, and others.

  • Guarantee dependable and scalable log collection and storage for effective system monitoring and issue resolution.

  • Review and enhance existing logging pipelines to improve overall performance and reliability.

Identify and Correct Cloud and Infrastructure Security Misconfigurations:

  • Perform thorough evaluations of cloud and infrastructure setups to pinpoint and rectify security misconfigurations.

  • Conduct security assessments on AWS and GCP configurations, network infrastructures, and access controls.

  • Apply industry-standard best practices and security frameworks to address discovered vulnerabilities.

  • Concentrate on improving IAM policies, VPC setups, storage bucket configurations, and ensuring compliance with standards like CIS benchmarks and NIST guidelines.

  • Enhance the overall security stance by eliminating vulnerabilities and ensuring adherence to best practices.

Establish, Manage, and Upgrade CI/CD Pipelines with Security Integrations:

  • Build and enhance CI/CD pipelines by embedding security best practices throughout the development lifecycle.

  • Automate security testing within pipelines using tools for static analysis (SAST), dynamic analysis (DAST), and software composition analysis (SCA).

  • Utilize technologies such as Jenkins, GitHub Actions, Terraform, and various security scanning tools.

  • Ensure the secure construction, testing, and deployment of code, with ongoing monitoring and improvement of pipelines.

  • Advise on secure coding practices and promote a security-focused culture within development teams.

We’re looking for candidates who have:

  • Infrastructure Expertise: Strong experience in designing, deploying, and managing secure cloud infrastructures using Kubernetes and Terraform.

  • Cloud Platforms: Proficiency in AWS and GCP, with a focus on implementing and managing security services.

  • Application Security Experience: Experience using SAST (Static Application Security Testing), DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing), and SCA (Software Composition Analysis) to identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in software applications.

  • Infrastructure-as-Code: Hands-on experience with Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tools, particularly Terraform.

  • Collaboration Skills: Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, for effective collaboration with cross-functional teams.

  • Security Best Practices: Understanding of secure coding practices, though the primary focus is on infrastructure and cloud security.

  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written

Nice to have experience:

  • Advanced Logging and Monitoring Tools: Experience with additional tools like Prometheus and Grafana, and familiarity with Kubernetes operators for managing logging and monitoring infrastructure.

  • Automation and Scripting: Proficiency in scripting languages such as Python or Bash for automating security and logging tasks, and experience with infrastructure as code (IaC) tools like Ansible or Chef.

  • Security and Compliance Expertise: Hands-on experience with security compliance standards such as ISO 27001 or SOC 2, and prior involvement in incident response and management within cloud environments, especially in regulated industries like finance or healthcare.

Technologies we use:

  • Coding Languages - Java, Javascript, Python,

  • IaC - Terraform

  • Cloud - AWS, GCP

  • CI/CD Pipeline - Github, GitHub Actions, Jenkins

  • API’s - REST APIs

While this is a remote-friendly role, candidates must reside in the Eastern or Central US time zones.
