What’s it like to work at OVO?
You will be joining the Orion Security Engineering team whose purpose is to ensure OVO’s greenfield Energy Platform is secure for all our customers while enabling our product teams to ship awesome features.
This is a varied role where you’ll be exposed to the full stack and will work across technologies including GCP, AWS, Kubernetes and Kafka. You’ll be focusing on projects spanning infrastructure, release engineering and security monitoring.
As part of the Security Engineering team we want to create solutions and insights that will allow us to meet a very high security calibre, while maintaining a fast delivery pace expected in a modern software system. We believe this happens through tight collaboration between Security Engineering and Software Engineering. You will have a strong focus on building relationships across various teams, including design feedback and coaching but most importantly building security improvements in our products.
What will you be doing?
You will be building tools and fostering our security culture to help OVO’s product teams rapidly deliver secure systems. Providing those teams with clear actionable advice on what risks and threats they have to their systems. You will also be responsible for defining and evolving security best practices for our greenfield system. Helping teams take action on those practices through your expert training or automation will be key to your success.
