The Cloud Foundry team at Pivotal is looking for experienced security engineers to work on improving the security of the platform.
As a Sr. Security Engineer you will join our teams building the secure credential and identify management subsystems of the Cloud Foundry platform. If you have a love or hate for authentication and authorization systems, Oauth, PKI systems, RBAC and/or SAML, we need your help. You’ll be using the Spring framework to enhance the security of our open source platform and provide secure services to applications running on the platform.
The Cloud Foundry team works in small agile teams. As a security engineer you will regularly work on the security team, but you will also rotate to other teams either working on important security features or learning valuable things about the platform which are relevant to security. You should be comfortable writing code but also comfortable working on all aspects that improve security, e.g. human factors, penetration testing, and configuring security tools. You will also spread your domain knowledge to people on your own team as well as other teams. In addition, you will assist the Product Manager in story and overall product definition as well as in customer conversations. Overall you’ll be helping the greater Cloud Foundry team identify product gaps and opportunities around your domain.
At Pivotal Cloud Foundry we transform how the world deploys and scales software, and we are opinionated about how software should be built. We work hard to deliver platform capabilities so customers can accelerate their time to market for software solutions. Our engineers pair program, all-day every day, because we know it delivers remarkable results. They also work in small teams, and rotate between them frequently so that they are able to meet everyone in the organization.
Just as our platform is opinionated about the architecture of applications, we are opinionated about how software should be built. We pair program, all-day every-day, because we know it delivers remarkable results. We believe in working at a sustainable pace – you’ll typically code hard for 8 hours each day, but then you’re off work to relax, recharge, and refocus.
