  • Implement and maintain secure cloud infrastructures using tools like Kubernetes and Terraform.

  • Manage software libraries and dependencies to ensure secure and up-to-date components within the software lifecycle.

  • Analyze and apply findings from static and dynamic application security testing to enhance system security continuously.

  • Integrate security protocols and standards into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) to ensure robust and secure product releases.

  • Enhance security measures across cloud environments (AWS, GCP) and ensure compliance with regulatory standards.

  • Work with cross-functional teams to implement security best practices and enhance security features within product designs.

  • Conduct regular security assessments to identify and remediate infrastructure and cloud security weaknesses.

  • Continuously analyze and apply findings from security testing to enhance system security.
