Who are we?
Our mission is to scale intelligence to serve humanity. We’re training and deploying frontier models for developers and enterprises who are building AI systems to power magical experiences like content generation, semantic search, RAG, and agents. We believe that our work is instrumental to the widespread adoption of AI.

We obsess over what we build. Each one of us is responsible for contributing to increasing the capabilities of our models and the value they drive for our customers. We like to work hard and move fast to do what’s best for our customers.

Cohere is a team of researchers, engineers, designers, and more, who are passionate about their craft. Each person is one of the best in the world at what they do. We believe that a diverse range of perspectives is a requirement for building great products.

Join us on our mission and shape the future!

Please Note: We have offices in Toronto, Palo Alto, and London but embrace being remote-first! There are no restrictions on where you can be located for this role.

As a Senior DevSecOps Engineer you will:

    • Harden our infrastructure and cloud-native environments (AWS, OCI, GCP) by introducing secure by default designs and features into network, tooling, and processes.
    • Proactively drive cloud and network security initiatives on the Security team.
    • Integrate security into our applications throughout the software development lifecycle.
    • Collaborate with other engineering teams and act as a crucial bridge between development and security, ensuring that software is built and deployed securely without compromising agility and speed.
    • Write Go/Python code, security peer review code, build proofs of concept and implement automation scripts.
    • Own and drive resolutions for enabling engineers to design, build, and use infrastructure securely at scale by deploying secure architectures using infrastructure-as-code and reusable code libraries.

You may be a good fit if:

    • 5+ years of previous experience in DevOps, DevSecOps, Application/Product Security or software development with a strong focus on security tool onboarding and optimization.
    • You have experience in managing cloud platforms and services (AWS and OCI experience is preferred).
    • You have experience with one or more of infrastructure automation, network segmentation, system hardening, container security concepts, and security observability.
    • You have an understanding of network security, cloud security concepts, and industry best practices across many fields of security.
    • You have experience with multiple languages such as Golang and/or Python.
    • You are comfortable with ambiguity and are able to make informed decisions with little data.
    • You are able to make trade-offs between build vs. buy decisions - help build solutions and able to review what tools are available.
    • You understand secure engineering best practices, can articulate problem statements and propose solutions to both technically savvy and non-technical audiences.
If some of the above doesn’t line up perfectly with your experience, we still encourage you to apply! If you consider yourself a thoughtful worker, a lifelong learner, and a kind and playful team member, Cohere is the place for you.
