The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

You see security as something that’s built in from day one, not something that’s fixed after the fact with bug fixes. You’re not content with providing tooling that doesn’t get used, or working on compliance audits that get forgotten the moment they are over. You’re looking for a role where you get to influence the way products are built. You want to see security infused into every design, every decision, every code review. You see yourself as someone who enables developers with tooling, and shares your experience and knowledge to help us continuously improve the way we build software.

This engineer role provides an exciting opportunity to take the next step in your career. You’ll be joining a team of DevSecOps engineers on a rapidly growing, highly collaborative R&D team working on VMware Cloud on Dell EMC (VMC on Dell). You’ll be building tooling and automation to enable us to build secure and compliant software, and working with other engineering and product management leads to help craft our security roadmap.

Within your first three months:

Learn about the VMC on Dell product, and our existing tools and processes

Within your first six months:
