Who you are:

* Driven, highly organized and motivated individual who is passionate about technology and security
* Inquisitive, have a can-do attitude and a remarkable knack for figuring things out and getting things done
* Work well within a team but also individually and with little direction
* Can communicate effectively in both written and oral forms to technical and non-technical audiences
* Work well under deadlines in a fast-paced environment
* Have the ability to apply hands-on knowledge to solve technical problems
* Have thorough knowledge about modern web application architecture and how to secure it (OWASP)

* Thorough understanding of AWS, including AWS security controls and tools
* Knowledge of industry security standards, principles, techniques and technologies (OWASP, ISO27001, NIST etc.)
* Knowledge of Linux, scripting and automation
* Proven ability to lead large projects that involved multiple development teams
* Advanced knowledge and understanding of security engineering, system and network security, authentication and security protocols, cryptography, and application security
