DevSecOps Engineer (Security Team)

SecurityRemote, Czechia

Hi there! 
We are Semrush, a global IT company developing our own product – a platform for digital marketers.

The Security Team is looking for a new colleague for the position of DevSecOps engineer.

Tasks in the role

  • Duty (we have several systems that send us alerts), we can’t do without it yet, but we try very hard to minimize the time required for duty through an adequate approach, automation, and good runbooks.

  • Tasks related to PCI DSS compliance (we have been audited for several years, but there is always a routine + desire to make things even better).

  • Creation of correlation rules in SIEM, alerts for the rule and response runbooks.

  • Analyzing and creating security policy for k8s.

  • Forming requirements and auditing GCP infrastructure for new services.

  • Integrating new analysis tools into CI/CD.

There are no clear frameworks in the group, all initiatives/improvements/development of systems are discussed, and a roadmap with success criteria is formed. We try not to limit ourselves in the scopes of decisions we choose, we like reasoned arguments, and we always help each other :).

Who we are looking for

  • Linux administration experience.

  • Good knowledge of networks.

  • Automation/programming skills (Bash, Python/Go/PHP).

  • Understanding of the basics of safety.

  • Understanding of CI/CD.

They say there are no perfect candidates, but that might well be you, if

  • Knowledge of GCP.

  • Ability to work with docker/k8s.

  • Understanding of DevOps/DevSecOps practices.

  • The ability to build communication with colleagues from dev teams.

  • Infrastructure auditing/pentesting skills.

A bit about the team

The group currently consists of three specialists, and we are engaged in the provisioning and development of infrastructure security in the company. Our team has big plans and ambitions. We try to make all decisions jointly. We are missing a colleague who likes to solve complex tasks, who is ready to explore and create new things, who is not afraid to look at the backlog sometimes.

We have several projects underway

  • Work with the team to develop security practices in GCP and k8s (focus on Policy as Code).

  • Participate in architecture reviews and audits of new services in terms of infrastructure security.

  • Integrate security controls with CI/CD.

  • Develop and help dev teams implement secure secret storage practices (Vault/GCP secret manager).

  • Participate in the development of an existing SIEM security incident detection and response system based on Splunk ES.

We also have many plans that have yet to be discussed and implemented. There is an opportunity to offer your vision of how we can improve infrastructure security and what opportunities there are for automation.

What challenges you will have to face

We have a very flexible approach, and we always try to find a compromise between the necessary tasks and the interesting ones. We try to set aside a little more time to be able to work through the task well, document everything important, and, if necessary, conduct research.

We will try to create all the right conditions for you to work and rest comfortably

  • Flexible working day start.

  • Psychologist consultations.

  • Breakfast, snacks, and coffee at the office.

  • Corporate events.

  • Multi-sport card and compensation for hobby expense (Employee+Family).

  • Training, courses, conferences.

  • English and Czech courses.

  • Gifts for employees.

  • Employee Stock Purchase Program.
