How do you make our customers happy?
By making sure customer data is safe and secure. In fact, you and your colleagues will be keeping all of our data safe and secure! It’s your expertise that keeps our IT systems both in our physical locations such as our distribution and fulfilment centers and of course in the (Google) Cloud.
Your responsibilities as guardian of our information galaxy
- Setup scalable security solutions such as auditing, security monitoring and other cool/exciting solutions in our cloud environment
- Automate as much as possible
- Review configs or solutions and apply hardening when needed
- Offer support together with your colleagues on security questions
- Come up with innovative ideas when you think it fits the solution and get feedback from your fellow team members
You consider yourself a system engineer with affinity towards security. As our Security Engineer you will work with the latest tech, have the freedom to do your job as you see fit and come up with good/better/great ideas to improve on our ways of working. You will be part of the SecOps team, comprised of six engineers and our team lead. Given the bol.com emphasis on security, this team might very well grow in the future. The team is focused on facilitating proper security solutions. Together with your other team member your focus will be cloud security, creating scalable and innovative solutions for the bol.com environment.
Also helping out with the vulnerability and security scanners is part of the job, see how we can improve and come up with ideas how to make everyone’s life easier and more secure. As part of this team, we expect you to have a good understanding of a variety of tools and solutions, cloud solutions such as GCP, AWS and/or Azure, kubernetes, docker containers, puppet, hiera and python. But we also appreciate your expertise when it comes to (for instance) load balancers, firewalls and syslog. This role mixes system engineering with creating scripts/tooling to provide solutions to your ‘customers’; your 2.000 bol.com colleagues.
Why you can make the difference
Because you know what you’re talking about and – more importantly – don’t hesitate when you feel the need to ask a question. You’re an approachable, amiable colleague. A team-player with strong communication skills and the drive to experiment and share learnings. Experience with cloud solutions such as GCP, AWS and/or Azure is a must. Knowledge of tools and solutions (the more, the merrier) like Bash, Kubernetes, LDAP, Nagios, Prometheus, proxies, load balancers, vault, firewalls and syslog would be a major asset. If some of those aren’t in your skill set yet, that’s no biggie, provided you look forward to discovering them.
3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you
- Yes, because you like small teams and the freedom/autonomy those give you
- Yes, because you embrace failures and share your learnings openly
- Yes, because the dynamic environment you’ll be in, energizes you
- Not, because you know you’re a genius and aren’t afraid to point that out every 5 minutes or so
- Not, because you think asking for help is a weakness
- Not, because you don’t believe a security environment can’t go hand in hand with velocity and pragmatic solutions
Where you’ll work
Bol.com serves over 10 million customers and hosts 2.5 million monthly visitors. This opportunity entails the chance to work in a truly autonomous team with the latest and greatest tooling. All of our cross-functional scrum teams embrace experimentation and new technologies. And share a burning ambition to work hard and play hard in equal measure. Which is why we have our own soccer field, games room and bar on Fridays. Continuous improvement and cooperation are cornerstones of our company. As a Security Engineer you can achieve great things solo, and even greater things together. Our motto: you build it, you run it, you love it, you hack it. If it can be improved upon: destroy, erase, improve!
