Competencies and Skills Needed

Behavioural Skills:

  • An ability to apply structured thinking, simplifying complex problems into component parts, to the resolution of project challenges.
  • Effective communication and interpersonal skills to be able to establish rapport with people at all levels.
  • An eye for detail and accuracy, and an affinity with design issues and the ability to help establish and own a vision for our solutions.
  • Organisational ability and tenacity; able to think ahead to establish an efficient and appropriate course of action for self and others.
  • Take a proactive approach to work, good with handling uncertainty and can manage their work without close supervision.
  • A strong sense of ownership and a desire to deliver quality outcomes for the business.

Technical Skills:

Some things to bear in mind:

  • Cloud security covers a wide gamut of skills and vendors - we use the interview process to see if someone will fit into a role even if they do not tick all the requirements below.
  • We value the ability to gain a deep understanding of a cloud platform and then demonstrate that to our clients through good communication, intelligent reasoning and top quality engineering.
  • The security team is intentionally cross-cloud and our aim is to support other engineers across the company and on projects to deploy capabilities like infrastructure-as-code, secrets management, service meshes, PKI infrastructures and more in a secure and robust manner.
  • We recruit people who may be currently AWS or Azure experts - however, as 70% of our work is on Google Cloud, all new members of the team are supported to certify to GCP Professional level.

A suitable candidate would have most of the following attributes:

  • Solid cloud platform expertise ideally backed-up by a professional-level certification and/or security certification (e.g. Google Cloud PCA/PCSE, Azure AZ305/AZ500, AWS SAP/SCS)
  • A platform-neutral broad-based understanding of cloud security, audit and risk qualified by a neutral certification from CompTIA (Security+ or CySA+), CSA (CCSK or CCAK), or ISC2 (SSCP, CCSP or CISSP)
  • Familiarity with modern application architectures and cloud platforms, with an understanding of micro-service applications and the challenges of the migration or transformation of legacy applications
  • Practical knowledge securing cloud foundational services such as compute, network, storage, databases as well as build, deployment and operations
  • Applied knowledge of DevSecOps principles and automated security testing techniques and an appreciation of tooling choices
  • Involvement in assisting architects with the design of security services for hybrid environments including IAM, account/resource access policies, firewall rules and monitoring alerts
  • Experience implementing cloud-native secret management and encryption engine solutions, key-management, PKI and workload identity
  • Practical knowledge of container, Kubernetes and service mesh security - ideally with CKA or CKS certification, hands on Istio or Anthos experience and multi-tenant/multi-provider solutions
  • Applied knowledge of security products for threat detection & intelligence, workload protection, posture management, and SIEM/SOAR
  • Experience of frameworks for modelling adversarial behaviour (such as MITRE ATT&CK or STRIDE)
  • Experience hardening and assessing cloud resources following cloud vendor (well-architected frameworks and security blueprints) and neutral security guidance such as from NIST, CIS, and OWASP
