  • Manage vulnerability reports from a variety of sources (pen tests, scanners, static code analysis, AWS auditing tools, etc.), assign priority and triage the mitigations through the engineering teams.
  • Help implement a holistic Security Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to ultimately identify security issues before they go into production, integrate software security into daily development, educate developers, police PRs and embedded security by design through architecture, threat modelling, audits, etc.
  • Collaborate with the security team on our threat detection tools, both custom alerting tools and enterprise SIEM/IDS systems, to gain visibility into application layer attacks; as well as aid the team’s efforts in the areas of incident response and procedure.
  • Help develop, manage, and enforce security related policies and procedures; support our internal and business-to-business Compliance program, practices and documentation.
