  • Helping evolve their secure software development practices for web applications, both non-authenticated and authenticated experiences
  • Supporting regular vulnerability assessment and remediation activities
  • Enabling others to adopt/embrace sound security practices and standards to ensure their information assets are protected

  • High comfort level with technical navigation of digital systems, both the application & infrastructure layers
  • Practical experience with threat detection/prevention, incident response, vulnerability management, threat modeling, risk management methodology, data de-identification and encryption standards
  • Identify and interpret security design requirements and their benefits for technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Tendency to balance business and security needs to improve the customer experience, building and maintaining relationships through coaching, not policing
  • Understanding of adversarial tactics, a penchant for curiosity, exploration and learning to stay current in your field
  • Experience with enabling teams to practice sound data governance, i.e., for digital analytics
  • More than a mild curiosity in artificial intelligence (AI) & machine learning (ML)
  • Desire to collaborate, roll up your sleeves/be in the weeds, ideally, you don’t need anyone to code for you, comfort with Node.js/React is desirable
  • Affinity for automating repetitive functions and a general dissatisfaction with traditional ways of doing things
