Join SADA as a Cloud Security Engineer!

 

Your Mission

As a Cloud Security Engineer (CSE) at SADA, you will work to enable organizations to design and implement a secure infrastructure on Google Cloud Platform. Through an understanding of security best practices and industry security requirements,  CSE’s will help our clients to design, develop, and manage a mature security infrastructure leveraging Google security technologies.  

As a Cloud Security Engineer you should be proficient in all aspects of Cloud Security including managing identity and access management, defining organizational structure and policies, using Google technologies to provide data protection, configuring network security defenses, collecting and analyzing Google Cloud Platform logs, managing incident response processes, and understanding regulatory concerns.  SADA’s CSEs will learn to assess a large enterprise’s overall security posture on GCP and provide prescriptive recommendations to improve.  You will work side-by-side with client teams that rely on us as trusted advisors to implement the security recommendations we make.

Our CSEs have firm beliefs that using Infrastructure as Code to implement security guardrails for GCP is the best approach.  You should have a deep passionate interest in cybersecurity and be willing to dive deep working towards client solutions in security areas that may be completely new to you.   You will work mostly independently with limited oversight. You will also participate in client-facing discussions as a cloud security SME.  Our CSE roles combine consulting with hands-on work.

Pathway to Success

#MakeThemRave is at the foundation of all our engineering. Our goal is to provide customers with an exceptional experience in maturing the security of their Google Cloud Platform environments. 

Your success comes from your enthusiasm, insight, and positive impact. You will be given direct feedback quarterly with respect to the scope and quality of your contributions, your ability to estimate accurately, customer feedback at the close of projects, your collaboration with your peers, and the consultative skill you demonstrate in customer interactions.

As you continue to execute successfully, we will build a personalized development plan together that leads you through the CSE growth tracks.
