DevSecOps Architect


As a DevSecOps Architect at Effectual, you will play a critical role in designing, implementing, and optimizing our DevSecOps practices. You will be responsible for architecting and securing Kubernetes clusters and its ecosystem. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of both DevOps and security principles to integrate them seamlessly.

A Glimpse into the Daily Routine of a DevSecOps Architect

You might start your day by analyzing information from an Effectual customer and drafting a solution to help them achieve their goals. You realize you don’t fully understand a technology the customer is using, so you do your research and diagram out the important parts for future reference. Later, you go hands-on to troubleshoot a CNI add-on and help unblock your teammate. Then you join a meeting with Sales to answer questions from a potential customer and check out some updates from CNCF. You notice an upcoming change that could impact Effectual’s standard solution patterns and share it with your peers in architecture for discussion. Before logging off, you briefly update you Jira tasks with today’s accomplishments and take a quick look at tomorrow’s work.
