Security Operations Engineer

Job Req ID: 481 - Amaysim Australia Ltd - New South Wales

We've spent the last couple of years on a journey of transformation in the way we build and ship our software. We've gone from monoliths to microservices (mostly), containerised all the things and now happily run almost all our stacks using Docker. We've invested heavily in Serverless (the philosophy and the framework) and are now also proudly run many services in production using this approach. We're fully acronym-compliant; we practice CI, CD & TDD to build React SPA's on top of JSON-Api compliant BFFs augmented with a growing eco-system of microservices. We've gone from shipping to production twice a month two years ago, to hundreds of times a month now. 


We’re after someone to help us secure all the things, become unhackable, and generally ensure security is job zero for everyone at amaysim, but especially you.


Things we are looking for:

•    Demonstrable experience in bringing security improvements to an IT/engineering/operations team
•    Thought leadership & Mentoring for engineering and operational resources
•    Proven experience in deploying modern, automated security tooling from a variety of sources
•    Practical, hands on skills (Intimate knowledge of Windows, CentOS and OSX and how to secure and maintain security) 
•    Proven experience in managing security incidents and responses
•    Demonstrated experience in writing secure code in at least a scripting language
•    Demonstrated experience in being able to review developers code and suggest security improvements
•    Ability to own or provide input into security policies and procedures
•    Report security performance against established security metrics
•    Excellent verbal and written communication skills
•    Ability to react to high pressure dynamic changing environments
•    Knowledge of Azure AD security best practices and management an advantage


We're less concerned about 'seniority' through years of experience and much more interested in your actual accomplishments, your high levels of motivation, your sense of ambition and desire to innovate and your collaborative and team-focused attitude. 

The IT Operations team is Sydney based, however we’re open to all applicants from across Australia who have full working rights and the ability to attend the Sydney office a few times a year.


What's else is in it for you?

You'll get the chance to work in an environment that has an enormous appetite for change; a place that truly values and fosters the innovation you can bring to the teams you work with. We try to be as lean as we can, avoiding red tape and bureaucracy. We do our best to maintain the 'startup' look and feel, but without the constraints and overheads usually associated with less well-established organisations.
We're small enough that your voice will be heard loud and clear, and your (excellent) ideas and innovations will be championed and rapidly adopted. And we're large enough that we can execute on these ideas at scale and your work will be used by hundreds of thousands of (happy) customers.
But wait, there's more. As well as being an awesome place to innovate, drive change and make a difference, amaysim also tries to be a place that keeps you excited to come in on a Monday morning through all kinds of fun extras, including:

•             free amaysim phone plan and a generous subsidy towards a new phone or laptop

•             an extra day of annual leave on your birthday

•             annual company Culture Days where you'll help us shape the future of amaysim

•             a thriving social life, with events happening most months;

•             flexible working, with a plan for a staged return to the office

•             online learning with LinkedIn Learning, fitness classes over zoom, and ClassPass access

•             and much, much more!

AGENCIES: We kindly ask that you don't contact us about this vacancy, we have it covered.
