Senior DevOps and Cloud Security Engineer (20243)

The Role


The Senior DevOps and Cloud Security Engineer is a senior engineering position at the H&B Security team, reporting to the Head of AppSec, who is responsible for proactively working with engineering teams across H&B in securing and protecting existing Cloud Infrastructure and Platforms.

Every engineering team at H&B is responsible for maintaining their applications, being supported by an PaaS (Platform as a Service) team that creates secure-by-design cloud-based environments. This role is embedded with these teams in order to proactively protect H&B assets, while ensuring an effective balance between security and innovation.

Scaling and Automation are core activities, with the final objective being the creation of an ecosystem that proactively, detects, mitigates and eliminates risks created by the deployment of applications in H&B cloud environments.


This is a very hands on role, with the expectation of covering the full life-cycle of a vulnerability:

  • proactively working with development teams in addressing vulnerabilities, by creating pull requests with the proposed fixes (key objective is to avoid overloading engineers with security-focused changes)
  • Integrating DevSecOps practices across H&B engineering and DevOps teams
  • pro-actively discovering vulnerabilities in existing/new pipelines
  • maximizing existing tools (for example Skyk, LaceWork, GitLabs Security, AWS Security)
  • providing deep technical guidance on how to eradicate similar vulnerabilities from the code-base
  • Leverage existing technology and products to embed security checks for vulnerabilities in the CI/CD pipelines
  • ultimately making sure that development (and DevOps) teams write secure code by design, by default and in deployment.


Areas of responsibility:

Supported by an experienced team, best in class technology and highly qualified 3rd parties, here are the areas of responsibility for this role

  • DevSecOps
  • Embed security tools in development CI pipeline
  • Internal Application and Security Reviews (embedded in the SDL)
  • Develop new security capabilities in CI pipeline
  • Automation and Scaling existing engineering capabilities and security tools/services
  • Automate patching and vulnerability discovery
  • Direct developer feedback on security vulnerabilities created
  • Infrastructure as code
  • Cloud Security
  • CI/CD integrations of Security tools/services

ultimately making sure that DevOps teams create secure environments by design, by default and in deployment.
