Your Rebel Team
Security: Rebellion's Security team is responsible for protecting the company's people, assets, products and ongoing business operations against security threats and disasters. We work in close partnership with US and UK governments, the defense industry, and across all internal business functions to ensure that security is built into our company and our products. Whether it is deep domain expertise and advice, to detection and response to emerging threats, to management of regulatory and contractual obligations, the security team drives a holistic security strategy to ensure trust in Rebellion and its products.
How you'll make a difference in this role:
We are looking to add a Security Architect to our team in Washington, DC (Seattle, WA or Remote opportunities for exceptional candidates).
As a Security Architect, you will be instrumental in the growth and security of Rebellion Defense by using your deep and broad experience to mold our long term security posture. You'll be a driving force in broadening our security and privacy strategies, as well as ensuring best practices and preventative controls are central to our infrastructure, architecture, operations and product decisions. As an advisor and domain expert, you will have a lot of autonomy around defining the work that makes the greatest impact. While you will be a strategic partner across groups in the organization, day to day, you will work alongside our Product Security, Security Automation, Compliance and Security Operations functions in delivering a secure by default, "paved road" strategy.
If you are interested in building a "paved road" from the ground up and building security into the DNA of a company, consider joining us!
This role reports to the Deputy Chief Information Security Officer.
What your mission is:
  • Ensure that our products and infrastructure are as secure as our customers expect them to be
  • Work closely with architects, product and engineering teams to design secure architecture and patterns around Rebellion Defense products.
  • Define and evangelize product, infrastructure and operational security best practices and security requirements.
  • Work closely with the Product Security & Automation team in implementing security solutions across the product lifecycle, to include security tooling, integrations in CI/CD, etc.
  • Collaborate with engineering management to achieve desired outcomes and communicate those outcomes with executives
  • Deliver system security architecture diagrams, security architecture specifications, design patterns and threat models

You may be fit for this role if your expertise aligns to:
  • Deep understanding of modern security best practices, from the architectural level about how to design infrastructure for defense in depth, down to the nitty-gritty about how WebAssembly has made buffer overflows great again
  • Depth of knowledge of Software Security Architecture and Design, SDLC and the ability to clearly articulate best practices
  • Experience with public cloud environments and technologies, including Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure
  • Deep knowledge of complex system threat modeling
  • Have application security, product security, cloud security, hardware security or security engineering expertise (bonus: start-up experience)
  • You believe in a "paved road" strategy to build application, infrastructure, offensive and operational security.
  • Have worked with security compliance standards (GDPR, ISO, PCI, RMF, SOC 2, oh my!), though we don't require experience in any particular standard
  • Care deeply about developing a blameless security culture
  • Are able to explain complex security concepts and issues and their impacts to a number of different stakeholders
  • Experience providing leadership and communicating progress on projects and operations
  • Offensive mentality (bonus: hands-on exploitation knowledge)

The Nature of our Work:
We are driving fast change to an extremely regulated industry. Many of the national security programs that are supported by Rebellion's products operate in secure environments and access to those spaces and the data in them may require an active personnel security clearance. It is a requirement of this position that you are able to obtain and hold a personnel security clearance at the right level.
