“It’s not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they’re not much bigger than 2 meters.” Who thinks that hackers have the same approach as a young Skywalker? Do you reckon that they look at an infrastructure and think “It’s not impossible? I used to break into TCP port 21 and they only get used for FTP.”

A client of IntaPeople’s are currently looking to revamp their security mindset and hire a Security Guru / Consultant / Jedi… however you want to word it! As their product develops, so does the security complexity – our client is a global organisation, breaking out in different countries daily - they have several development teams and imagine this role as rush goalie for those teams…. It’s your responsibility that no unauthorised user can abuse the system.

You pull out all the stops to ensure secure and safe products. It is your job to further fortify the platform. Developing is one part of the job - advocating the urgency of security is another.
As the Security Guru, it will be your job to take part in multiple Scrum teams developing components for the platform. You will write secure code, review the code of your colleagues and keep the teams updated on security trends and threats.

By thinking like a hacker, you know where to look for possible improvements. Your experience leads you to think of possible scenarios. You address application security issues and share practices on secure coding for the development teams. Of course, you constantly anticipate, always being one step ahead.

In order to be considered for this role you will need to demonstrate the following skillset and technological knowledge;
• Strong development experience; in an ideal world it will be Java with some spring security experience however it doesn’t matter what you’ve coded in, we just want someone with a strong development background who can easily transfer to a new tech stack.
• A good level of experience within security; application security, secure coding etc. This is crucial as you will be the go-to security expert within the development team.
• An analytical approach is crucial; you will be looking at the current code base and systems, the future projects and advising how to make the systems and applications more secure.
• Ideally you will be a security guru and hold one of the following qualifications CISMP, CISSP, GIAC, OWASP, CEH but rest assured this isn’t an essential!

If the above feels like an interesting role that you want to move into then get in touch. You may not be 100% focussed on security in your current role but if you have a good base knowledge, as well as desire to develop yourself further in this space then get in touch.
