  • Work with key stakeholders to ensure that security is built into the design of projects and initiatives across the business. 
  • Build, implement and maintain key security controls and technologies for the Security team and the company aligned to the security strategy and roadmap. 
  • Analyse applications, systems, and infrastructure to identify key architectural risks, and recommend and drive security improvements using a risk based approach. 
  • Articulate business and security requirements in product evaluations via the RFP process. 
  • Collaborate with the Product Security function to ensure the appropriate security controls and technologies are in place across the tech stack to support DevSecOps. 
  • Mentor other Security Architects within the team and contribute to their development plans
  • Provide level 3 SME support for security technologies or in the event of a security incident as required. 
  • Support the Security Risk Management function on the development of security policies and standards, security audits, risk management, and security awareness and training.



  • Strong hands-on and technical experience with a solid understanding of enterprise systems, the various security threats and risks they face, and how to remediate them.
  • Delivery of Security Architecture Artefacts (HLD/LLD) and other relevant documentation.
  • Experience with the implementation and management of Identity and Access Management solutions (IAM/PAM)
  • Consultancy experience/security advocacy within enterprise-scale organisations, whether acting as an internal or external consultant to drive change.
  • Broad knowledge of the security technologies and capabilities used in an enterprise, particularly in a high growth, cloud based environment. 
  • Experience developing and implementing a security technology “blueprint” leveraging a cloud framework (e..g, AWS Well Architected) to build secure, high-performing, resilient and efficient infrastructure for applications and workloads. 
  • Experience with virtualised and containerised environments  (e.g., AWS ECS) and ensuring that security architecture and engineering aligns to that model.
  • Deep knowledge of at least one security domain (e.g., identity and access management, application security, data security, cloud security, etc.).

Preferred, but not required:

  • Experience with security audits and compliance and risk management.
  • Hands-on coding experience.
  • Cloud security experience is a must, but AWS Cloud and Google Workspace (G Suite) experience is preferred.
