Google Cloud Security Engineer, Senior

The Challenge

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how to do so with security and scalability. As a Google Cloud Security Engineer, you know how to design solutions that meets customer needs and take advantage of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) capabilities. What if you could use your engineering skills to protect personal, financial, health, and other sensitive information for government agencies and global enterprises? We’re looking for an engineer who can create advanced cybersecurity solutions in the cloud that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.  

As a Google Cloud Security Engineer on our team, you’ll apply specialized knowledge of GCP to develop security solutions in multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments and protect our client's most sensitive information. You’ll work on a dynamic, cross-functional team and employ automation and cybersecurity best practices in GCP as well as integrations with other major cloud service providers including AWS and Azure. You’ll also coordinate with executives, clients, and industry leading vendors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client’s goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective cloud-hosted solutions. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our country's financial markets, warfighters, citizen services, and healthcare. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating security best practices like Infrastructure as Code (IaC), automated compliance and security testing, immutable containers, and end-to-end automated deployments. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into advanced and emerging areas of cybersecurity like zero trust networks, automated incident response, and advanced analytics to support dynamic and secure cloud infrastructure. Join our team as we deliver innovative cybersecurity solutions to protect our client's information in the cloud.
