About You

You have experience in analyzing existing DevOps systems from a security and best practices perspective and proposing recommendations for improvements. Your background will include experience with networking (Windows and Linux) and web hosting and how this translates to the cloud and Infrastructure as Code. Your focus will be on Amazon Web Service systems. You’ll have experience with multi-account AWS infrastructure and good governance mechanisms.

You’ll be familiar with concepts such as OWASP Top 10 and MITRE ATT&CK. You understand DevOps processes and how infrastructure as code can be used to build out cloud systems. You know what Terraform, CloudFormation and Azure Resource Manager templates are.

You know what Jenkins and CircleCI are. You may have used Ansible, Puppet or Chef. You’re familiar with GitHub and GitLab native security pipeline tooling. You’ll understand concepts around DevSecOps pipelines including static analysis, secret scanning and container vulnerability scanning. You augment your knowledge of cloud systems by using tools such as ScoutSuite for infrastructure and vulnerability detection.  

You’ll be familiar with building pipelines that include tools such as Veracode, Blackduck, SonarQube and git-secrets. You understand how linting, unit tests and code coverage fit into a DevOps pipeline . You’ll also be familiar with cloud-native DevOps and security options. As well as being AWS focused you’ll be a generalist when it comes to information security. You attend conferences, and even better talk/volunteer/help organize them. You enjoy CTF challenges, reading or listening to podcasts on the subject. You are happy presenting to clients including senior management and have good written skills for compiling findings and recommendations reports. 

Finally, you have a passion for learning. You won’t mind expanding your skill set, and getting some exposure to Azure and GCP, especially to help understand how these factor into multi-cloud DevOps solutions 

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must.
