Who you are

  • You've done this before; you've spent at least 5 years in security engineering and operations, on-premise and in the cloud. You have experience running advanced security operations and tactical tasks such as penetration tests. You understand how to execute a security program
  • You would rather automate it than do it by hand; you realize that automation is the most important component of delivering consistency, safety, and efficiency
  • You can deal with change; you're able to change direction as production priorities shift. You can dig into the details, are able to context switch, and stay focused on the most relevant issues of the moment
  • You have stood up platforms; you've tweaked deployments and rebuilt deployments from scratch, and know when it's appropriate to take either path
  • You know what you know, and want to learn what you don't; you're a continuous learner and eager to take on new challenges, become an expert, and empower others with your own knowledge and experiences
