Red Ventures is seeking a Security Solutions Architect to join our growing Cyber Security team. In this role, we are looking for someone to join our growing Security team aligned closely with our Infrastructure and Software Engineering teams to help define and implement architectural safeguards to ensure the safety and security of our systems and data.
At the intersection of leadership, strategic design, and implementation, the Security Solutions Architect role is key to Red Ventures’ continued operational success both on-premises and in the cloud (AWS). The Security Solutions Architect would play a role in safeguarding our systems by ensuring that our technology capabilities, infrastructure, and toolsets are held to the strictest security standards. Examples include designing security patterns and implementations related to firewalls, endpoint security, cloud security, vulnerability scanning and more. In addition to recommending ways to improve our security risk posture, you’ll contribute to the direction and strategy of our governance model, policies, and protocols. This will include the effective use of tools, controls, and countermeasures to protect or minimize the effect of unauthorized attempts to gain access to our systems.
Our growing Cyber Security team thinks like hackers would, because they must anticipate the continually evolving tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) hackers will use to try and gain unauthorized access to our systems or negatively impact our business. To be successful, you’ll need to gain a thorough understanding of our systems, identify potential weak points, and recommend ways to improve and update security (while also looking for ways to remove risk-related blockers to business innovation).
The ideal candidate is comfortable being hands-on, and has experience with cloud security; SaaS vendor evaluations and security reviews; data protection (encryption, tokenization); security analytics, forensics and log analysis; web application security and secure coding practices; and web server and proxy hardening. Candidates should also be comfortable writing tools and provisioning new security infrastructures in lab environments for functional and performance testing.
The best candidate has 8+ years of extensive and detailed knowledge and experience in all aspects of cloud, network and system security at an engineering level.
