  • Scrum Master / Project Manager
  • Senior Engineer
  • Information Security Engineer
  • Architect Community of Practice
  • BISO

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work across business and technology to create the solution intent and architectural vision and evolve it to align with GIS policy.
  • Consult with the business regarding problems and technology to understand challenges and find secure solutions through their knowledge of the domain, practical experiments and Proof of Concepts (POCs).
  • Lead rapid shaping of a high-level architecture with details filled in with emerging business requirements; ensure architecture is secure and designed to adapt easily.
  • Utilize the defined best practices, templates and documentation to create architectural designs; suggest improvements to best practices and templates through practical knowledge.
  • Work with Product Managers and Owners to plan and prioritize security-focused backlog items for the architecture runway to enable business epics and features.
  • Clarify the architecture and assist with system design (where needed) for the development teams to support implementation, and provide solution options to resolve any architectural impediments.
  • Perform design and code reviews to ensure all security requirements for a solution are sufficiently met (for example, confidentiality, integrity, and availability).
  • Educate team members on the security principles, technology practices, standardization strategies and best practices to create secure solutions

Required Skills:

  • Strong knowledge of crypto security fundamentals, included but not limited to (HSM integration, key generation and protection, symmetric and asymmetric use cases)
  • Strong knowledge of crypto libraries, algorithms and cipher suites and how they are implemented
  • Experience with managing secrets in cloud environments
  • Experience developing or onboarding security tooling to support encryption requirements
  • Experience develop cryptographic solutions for data at rest and data in motion across the entire technology stack
  • Familiarity with commercial encryption solutions (e.g., HSM, Key Vaults, Encryption-decryption services)

Enterprise Role Overview: Responsible for defining an architectural vision and architecture for large complex solutions, which aligns with the enterprise architecture strategy, technology and platform choices. Describes the solution intent and the associated operating environment, determining the primary systems/subsystems and their interfaces, defining non-functional requirements and architectural runway to support new epics/features and expand into new opportunities. Ensures the solution is fit for purpose and use by working with stakeholders, vendors/service providers, and evaluating the impact of strategic design decisions. Contributes to best practices, standard templates, and the architecture roadmap for defined domains. Contributes in the creation of the architecture roadmap of defined domains (Business, Application, Data and Technology) in support of the product roadmap. Contributes to the development of best practices including standardized templates. Works across business and technology to create the solution intent and architectural vision for large complex solutions and evolves it based on an emerging backlog. Leads rapid shaping of a high level architecture with details filled in with emerging business requirements; ensures architecture is flexible and modular and designed to adapt easily. Facilitates solution driven discussions, leads the design of complex architectures, and finds creative solutions through practical experiments and POCs. Works with Product Manager/Owner to plan and prioritize technology focused backlog items for the architecture runway to enable business epics/features and expand into new opportunities. Clarifies the architecture for the development teams to support implementation, and provides solution options to resolve any architectural impediments. Performs design and code reviews to ensure all non-functional requirements for a solution are sufficiently met (e.g. security, performance, maintainability, scalability, usability, and reliability). Supports the Principal Engineer as needed to select the technology stack needed for solutions, and helps select preferred technology products. Educates team members on the technology practices, standardization strategies and best practices to create innovative solutions. Individual Contributor.
