  • Drive security improvements to production environments and the deployment processes
  • Perform targeted offensive security testing 
  • Promote better security throughout the company
  • Implement continuous monitoring systems and tools to automatically identify potential security issues at the code, application and infrastructure layers
  • Support external and internal penetration testing efforts and assist with driving issues to closure 
  • Assist with our bug bounty program and maturation of Hacker powered security
  • Promote a security-first culture and ensure that all employees at Sisense are able to protect the organization from threats

What should you have?

  • Experience working as a security engineer, consultant or similar position
  • Security mindset as a business enabler and as part of the core security foundation
  • Effective communication style and action- driven abilities
  • Hands-on experience in configuring and hardening cloud-based infrastructure (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, etc.)
  • Experience with container technology (Kubernetes)
  • Strong experience in Python, Java, JavaScript, Go and Ruby on Rails
  • Demonstrated capability in secure coding (input validation, session management, etc.) and performing automated or manual static analysis
  • Hands-on experience in conducting penetration testing and vulnerability assessment at the network and application layers
  • Ability to dissect new systems, product requirements, features to identify and develop security requirements
