We'll stay in Ireland briefly and pop across to Amazon, which is hiring in its security team.

Security Engineer Operations, Dublin, Ireland


The Team: How often have you had an opportunity to be member of a team that is tasked with solving a huge business problem through technology innovations? Would you like to know more about the cutting edge in computer science like computer vision and machine learning can be used to solve these problems? If this sounds intriguing, then we’d like to talk to you about a role on an Amazon initiative. We are highly entrepreneurial, wear many hats, and work in a highly collaborative environment that’s more startup than a big company.

The Role: As a Security Engineer you will help ensure our applications and services are designed and implemented to the highest standards. If you enjoy analysing the security of applications and services, discovering and addressing security issues and quickly reacting to new threat scenarios, this position will provide you with a challenging opportunity. You will participate in security audits, risk analysis, vulnerability testing and security reviews across all elements of this project's software systems.

This role will draw on multiple disciplines:

  • Security Engineering: emphasis on operating systems and networking, foundational Internet services, modern exploitation techniques, and hacking tools.
  • Data Science and Intelligence Analysis: emphasis on detecting anomalies in large unstructured data sets, ability to synthesise data and reports from different sources, make logical inferences about that data, and publish results.
  • Software Development: ability to develop your own small tools and scripts to aid in data processing or other aspects of an investigation.

You will tackle challenging, novel situations every day and given the size of this initiative, you’ll have the opportunity to work with multiple technical teams at Amazon in different locations. You should be comfortable with a high degree of ambiguity and relish the idea of solving problems that haven’t been solved at scale before. Along the way, we guarantee that you’ll learn a ton, have fun and make a positive impact on millions of people.

Next up we have Container Solutions, which is hiring all over and looking for cloud expertise.

We are a vendor-agnostic company, meaning that you will get to apply a diverse mix of tools and services. You can work from home, only traveling to our local Amsterdam office for 2-3 days per month. However, as a part of the job, the cooperation with our customers will require you to travel to their offices when needed.

Salary and Benefits Our biggest benefits are our people and our culture. We offer a diverse work environment where people are respected for who they are and a culture based on learning, trust, and collaboration. Our homely Amsterdam office is conveniently located next to Central Station with a beautiful view of the city’s canals. You can also count on:

  • Full coverage of travel and commute
  • Possibility for employee ownership and equity based compensation
  • Unlimited books budget

What does it take? We often build tailored, innovative solutions within complex and ambiguous environments. Therefore, having an inquisitive mind and the eagerness to explore is vital.

Must-have technical skills:

  • Background in development and/or operations.
  • An understanding of best practices and patterns in software development.
  • Experience with CI/CD (knowledge of the principles and ability to set up a pipeline from scratch).
  • Infrastructure provisioning (such as Terraform, Ansible, Cloud Formation, etc)
