The Position
As a Cloud Security Ops Engineer at Theta Lake, you will be responsible for ensuring that Theta Lake’s cloud-based products are available, secure, consistent, manageable and cost efficient. Additionally, you will have the responsibility to:

  • Document technical strategy, patterns and processes.
  • Maintain, lead and challenge the security footprint to bring continuous advancement and maturity.

You will have the opportunity to work closely with experienced entrepreneurs to find creative solutions to tough problems where the management overhead is low and taking the initiative is encouraged and valued.
