Join SADA as a Staff Cloud Security Consultant!

Your Mission

As a Staff Cloud Security Consultant (Staff CSC) at SADA, you will help organizations architect and implement secure infrastructures on Google Cloud Platform. Through an understanding of Google Cloud security best practices and industry security requirements, you will help our clients design, develop and manage a mature security infrastructure leveraging Google Cloud security technologies.  

You are proficient in all aspects of Google Cloud Security including managing identity and access management, defining organizational structure and policies, using Google Cloud technologies to provide data protection, configuring network security defenses, collecting and analyzing Google Cloud Platform logs, managing incident response processes and understanding regulatory concerns.  You will lead in assessing and remediating security gaps in large enterprises, providing both prescriptive recommendations to improve as well as lead hands-on-keyboard work implementing your recommendations. You will work side-by-side with client teams that rely on you as a trusted advisor to lead them through implementing the security recommendations you make.

Our Staff CSCs firmly believe that using infrastructure-as-code to implement security controls is the best approach for scaling security in Google Cloud. You should have a deep, passionate interest in cybersecurity and be willing to dive deep, working towards client solutions in security areas that are rapidly changing. You must be able to work independently without oversight while leading clients and junior team members. You will be the lead in client-facing discussions as a cloud security SME and must be able to answer challenging security questions from clients using GCP. Our Staff CSC roles combine leadership, mentoring, and consulting with hands-on work to drive successful outcomes for our clients.

Pathway to Success

#MakeThemRave is at the foundation of all our engineering. Our goal is to provide customers with an exceptional experience in maturing the security of their Google Cloud Platform environments. 

Your success comes from your enthusiasm, insight, and positive impact. You will be given direct feedback quarterly with respect to the scope and quality of your contributions, your ability to estimate accurately, customer feedback at the close of projects, your collaboration with your peers, and the consultative skill you demonstrate in customer interactions.

As you continue to execute successfully, we will build a personalized development plan together that leads you through the Staff CSC growth tracks.
