Engineering @ Wealthsimple
Wealthsimple's engineering teams build software that helps hundreds of thousands of users manage billions of dollars in assets. We do this using a micro service architecture & an agile approach, focused on short iterations & rigorous automated testing, deploying our code over 100 times a day.
Reporting to VP of Engineering, you will lead our Security Team & work across the organization to plan & execute the next iteration of Wealthsimple's security strategy that would continue to ensure the safety of our clients' assets & data while allowing the company to stay agile & to maintain world-class customer service. We are a modern & forward-looking software company. Our systems are built as a collection of containerized microservices, deployed in the cloud, managed using an infrastructure as code approach, & updated through a modern continuous deployment pipeline. We follow a zero trust approach to securing individual microservices & empower developers to play an active role in ensuring security. You will need to be able to lead & expand such efforts. Your team will support our developers & our infrastructure team through training, advice, libraries & tools. It will also investigate threats & vulnerabilities, handle security incidents, & work to solve problems.
