What is a Senior Security Engineer?

Clearcover is looking for an energetic, experienced, and highly motivated Senior Security Engineer to join our team. Security Engineers build, maintain, and monitor security solutions to protect the platform that powers Clearcover’s API products, applications, and machine-learning applications. We work every day to improve the security of our software and build automation within our AWS infrastructure. The Senior Security Engineer role is an integral part of our Product and Technology organization and requires a shift-left mindset for security. If you have an appetite for cloud-native security built on automation, we'd love to talk to you!

What will you do?

  • Play a significant role in the design and execution of the security operations processes, procedures and runbooks.
  • Guide/lead mitigation strategies for identified vulnerabilities and threats.
  • Prioritize events using existing tools to correlate data for the purpose of reducing false positives and detecting threats.
  • Lead incident response activities.
  • Develop monthly reporting dashboards and metrics on vulnerabilities and remediation.
  • Work closely with SRE to “build-in” security as code.
  • Develop, deploy, and operate security mechanisms within our AWS infrastructure.
  • Act as a trusted advisor for security related questions and concerns.

What do you need?

  • 6+ years of experience working in security with at least 4 years being in an engineering role.
  • Hands-on experience with security operations monitoring tools and processes, including SIEM and endpoint protection platforms.
  • Experience triaging security alerts, leading investigations, and reporting on findings.
  • Knowledge of security hardening standards and vulnerability trends on Linux servers and containers.
  • Understanding of data protection mechanisms including encryption.
  • Knowledge of defensive security measures and vulnerability trends.
  • Sound knowledge of APIs and SOAR.
  • Experience securing cloud IaaS offerings in AWS.

Nice to haves?

  • Experience in one or more languages such as Python, Go, Ruby, Kotin, or JavaScript
  • Experience with integrating security into continuous integration/deployment tools.
  • Experience implementing security in Kubernetes.
