Security Engineer – MicroServices Framework
Although not a household name, State Street is one of the world’s largest and most important financial services institutions, providing round-the-clock services to the global investment community. We touch $33 trillion in assets every day, and are the world’s third largest investment manager with over $2.8 trillion in assets under management. To do this we manage as much data as one of the internet giants on nearly as large a technical footprint.
In January 2018, we launched one of the industry’s largest technical transformation projects, in effect building a new bank from the ground up. This project isn’t greenfield in the way most banks claim projects are; we’ve started with a blank sheet of paper both operationally and technically. We’re using the same technologies that Silicon Valley giants are using: aggressive use of multiple public clouds, building our own private cloud to achieve even better performance, pushing out microservices into what will be one of the largest Kubernetes installations in the world, leveraging immutable storage to process and store hundreds of terabytes of data a day, transforming our industry through application of distributed ledger technology and cognitive computing, aggressively participating in open source communities driving our systems.
This isn’t a traditional banking role. This is a chance to push your technical skills with people more comfortable in a technology firm than an investment bank, but solving real problems that affect anyone with any form of savings worldwide (not just trying to get people to click on ads). We don’t expect you to wear a suit, we don’t expect you to not be able to tell your friends what you’re working on, we don’t expect you to sit in meetings 5 hours a day.
Although you will work with a global and remote team, our security epicenter is Belfast and this role is only open to candidates in our Belfast engineering office.
This role is for the technology team that is in charge of our microservices framework. We consider this, with our Unified Data Architecture, to serve as the application operating system for State Street, and covers everything that an application devops team would work with on a daily basis:
We are looking for enthusiastic and curious security practitioners with a slant in automation and scripting, working in everything from appsec to network security engineering, across our different infrastructure and technology development streams.
As we’re hiring very rapidly for the right candidates, if you have experience or interest in any of the technologies we work with, we’d love to hear from you!
Successful candidates will:
