We want you to become one of our 'DevSecOps' specialists - we'll train and then deploy you as a consultant to one of our many attractive clients.
Businesses continually want a better idea of what is happening in the IT space and assurances that everything is being done to mitigate risks. That doesn't sound very interesting at first but DevSecOps is one of the most talked about changes to the tech world in recent years.
It can be described as a holistic, secure by design approach to code and delivery that involves people, processes and tools.
It's a do-all job, you get to develop, you get to test, you get to work closely with the business and use the most up to date tools in the industry to reduce the risk of someone or something introducing defects and flaws at a coding level - you will be creating a 'secure by default' environment.
Working on User Stories, working in Test Driven Development (TDD), pair programming, penetration testing (hacking to some), monitoring and detecting threats, recovery strategies, threat modelling, fortifying, mutation detection, … and a lot more.
Realistically, you're going to have to think like a hacker to understand how the software may be attacked when it becomes available. That's pretty cool.
By breaking down the name we start to get an even clearer idea of what that means:
These have traditionally been separate teams, but now experts are being created to be specialised in all 3.
Don't worry, you're not expected to know how to do all of this already, that's where we come in.
We can take your already great skillsets and train you to the level of a very capable specialist consultant. We want you constantly asking the question "how do I automate all the boring stuff?" and then we'll give you the know-how to build whatever it is you think of.
We want to help you grow into a security consultant with niche skillsets from continuous delivery to cloud platforms and everything in between.
We take time and care to develop your abilities and confidence, your success is our success - together we make other businesses stronger.
