We created, drive and lead the graph database category, and we’re disrupting how organizations leverage their data to innovate and stay competitive.

The Team:

The cloud offering from Neo4j is called Aura and we are now looking to expand our Aura team with more skilled persons. Aura as of today is running more than 400 managed Kubernetes clusters in production across multiple CSPs and we need to expand our knowledge and capacity within Cloud security further.

Now we are looking for experienced Software Engineers with Cloud Security expertise to join us to develop the platform to meet current and future needs within the Cloud security area.

What you will do:

  • Collaborate with other teams to define and implement Cloud/K8s native policies and procedures (i.e. Admission Controllers, OPA, Pod Security Standards).
  • Develop cloud-native controls in Azure, AWS and/or GCP to enforce the security baseline at scale, integrating with open-source and vendor tools as needed.
  • Enhance product security along the software development lifecycle by creating “paved roads” and defining additional security and software excellence requirements for containerised services running on multiple managed Kubernetes clusters.
  • Act as a subject matter expert for the Platform and Engineering teams by providing guidance on cloud and k8s services, secure infrastructure-as-code, modern secure AuthZ/AuthN techniques and secrets management solutions.
  • Participate in conducting security assessments, audits and architecture reviews in order to introduce new cloud controls in the platform and make recommendations to improve the overall security posture.
  • Support the incident detection and response process by maintaining cloud monitoring and alerting tooling and developing scripts needed for troubleshooting and resolution of incidents and security issues.
  • Support compliance initiatives and certifications for cloud environments.

The ideal candidate would have experience in:

  • Experience with Containers, Kubernetes, Infrastructure-as-Code and programming languages like Go and/or Python.
  • An active interest and background in Cloud, Infrastructure and Network security.
  • Proven experience in a security engineering role with hands-on technical involvement, and exposure to decision making processes.
