The Security team at Nitro focuses on partnering with groups throughout the company to create and deliver applications and services that are secure. Our work includes audits such as operations and infrastructure reviews, threat models and architecture reviews. We also build partnerships with our corporate IT team in defining security-related requirements and providing input on infrastructure and operations proposals.

  • Contribute to the design of a Zero Trust corporate environment strategy
  • Perform reviews ranging from architectural design to operations and cloud-based infrastructure reviews, providing actionable recommendations to make Nitro’s product, service and corporate infra environments more secure

  • Be available on call to triage and respond to security alerts and potential incidents
  • Provide technical leadership to junior members of the engineering organization 

What we're looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in the Operations security space, including experience securing Cloud infrastructures (AWS, Azure, etc.) 
  • Hands-on experience with securing Containers/Kubernetes 
  • Hands-on experience writing code for security tooling and automation 
  • Strong security fundamentals knowledge and solid threat modelling and security architecture skills
  • A track record of contributing to projects from design to implementation and through maintenance
  • Experience helping to design or improve security logging and monitoring strategies, including experience with modern observability platforms (like DataDog)
  • Practical knowledge and experience working in public cloud environments (AWS, Azure, etc.) 
  • An interest in conceiving and building creative solutions to complex security problems and scaling the team’s impact through DevSecOps solutions 

What would be awesome to also have  

  • Documented contributions to the security community (conference talks, Open Source projects, viral memes, etc) 
  • Experience utilizing infrastructure as code tools like Terraform 
  • Experience building and/or maintaining a Zero Trust corporate environment 
  • Experience in managing corporate Identity and Access Management
  • Experience or interest in leading teams 

Please note, this role can be hired remotely in Ireland and some other European countries. 

How We Work: 
Our mission is to help create, develop, and support an environment where great people come to do their best work. We believe there is a balance to strike between “work hard, play hard,” and we strive to improve in both areas every day. 
We put our customers, employees, and communities at the center of everything we do. It all comes back to our core values:    

  • Be Good - Nitronauts are good humans with big hearts that are respectful and supportive of each other. We celebrate individuality and diversity and strive to foster an environment where people can be themselves and do their best work.     
  • Performance First - We like to challenge ourselves. We’re passionate about exceeding expectations and stepping outside our comfort zones to get to the next level. It’s our ambition that pushes us to work hard and deliver strong results.   
  • No B.S. - This one is self-explanatory, but we’re all about transparency, honesty, and authenticity here. We don’t beat around the bush; we tell it like it is. 

Why Nitro 
Our goal is to empower our Nitronauts—to make an impact, work better together, and believe any goal is attainable. We take pride in the perks and benefits provided to employees that make their day-to-day lives more enjoyable and secure. Along with our regular benefits and programs (including health, dental, vision, retirement as standard), we are also very proud to offer a few additional initiatives to future Nitronauts:
