Are you a Cloud Security Architect who'd like to join a greenfield project from the very outset? As a Cloud Security Architect, would you like to join a start-up business being run as part of an incubator program within one of the worlds best investment banks.

Our client, has the agility of a start-up, but with the full resources behind it of a leading investment bank. The start-up is creating a digital end to end, fully cloud native, solution to disrupt the way large scale loans are managed (>$200M), an industry that's stood still for 30 years and is ripe for disruption.

The company is keen to onboard an AWS Cloud Security Architect at the very beginning of this project to help architect, design and implement this platform while also partnering with the broader Tech Risk function of the bank. 

As an experienced AWS Cloud Security Architect, you'll have experience of:

  • Designing and Implementing mission critical cloud native platforms, ideally in an AWS environment
  • Providing guidance and oversight for engineering teams ensuring best in class security principles are adhered through during the entire development process
  • Collaborating with other highly experienced Security & Tech Risk professionals to ensure the best possible solution

The requirements for you as an AWS Cloud Security Architect are:

  • Degree or above in a STEM subject with a solid understanding of security fundamentals.
  • 10+ years commercial experience in software engineering roles, with at least 5 working with as a Security Architect, ideally in an AWS cloud-native environment
  • Proven experience of designing and building robust, resilient and secure enterprise platforms where the security of customer data is paramount
  • Ideally some coding experience with Python

This is a rare opportunity to join at the outset of a multi-year initiative where you can take a leadership role in defining the IT security strategy for a new global platform. 

Having worked at the investment bank backing this firm for 17 years myself, I can honestly say you'll be working with some exceptional people, so as well as contributing, you'll get to learn from those around you.

Strong AWS Cloud Security Architects are encouraged to apply and will receive a response within 24 hours.

Re-location assistance and VISA sponsorship is available.
