Capital One is looking for Control Design Engineers to ensure that enterprise cloud security controls are designed effectively across a range of technologies.

Candidates for this role should have experience with cloud-based platforms, such as AWS. Candidates should be passionate about cybersecurity with an eye for continuous improvement and empathy for development teams.

  • Create and update technical specifications for cloud controls
  • Research security issues to understand risks and operational impacts, and propose control implementation options accordingly
  • Identify opportunities to re-architect or improve existing controls as new security technology becomes available
  • Define steps required for application teams to comply with cloud controls
  • Coordinate with control implementation teams to resolve any implementation issues
  • Perform peer reviews for work completed by other team members

Key Terms: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Cloud Security, Cybersecurity

Basic Qualifications:

  • At least 8 years of experience with engineering, information technology, or software development

  • Experience with more than one cloud service provider, such as AWS, GCP, and Azure
