About The Team:
Reporting to the SVP Engineering.

Here's how you will make an impact:

    • With a solid foundation in software engineering/computer science and mastery of both Canadian and U.S. information security, consumer protection and privacy laws, you bring a pragmatic and balanced approach to risk assessment
    • In partnership with our internal teams; consider and decide upon security and privacy requirements throughout the product development lifecycle (e.g. architecture, design, development, deployment, operations, support etc.)
    • Being “cool under pressure” will mean all Wavers can breathe easy knowing you are in charge of incident management and trust in your aptitude to respond quickly but appropriately in all scenarios including security breaches or events where you are required to assume responsibility for incident command
    • With your keen eye for detail and passion for keeping immaculate records, you will ensure that Wave passes all PCI audit requirements while simultaneously reviewing, maintaining and updating Wave policies and relevant training
    • Your appetite for metrics and data will help you formulate the security and privacy dashboard which will help drive decision making at all levels of the organization
    • You understand that security is everyone’s responsibility; to inspire others you utilize bug bounty programs that ensure all Wavers are on the lookout for potential vulnerabilities

You'll thrive here if you have:

    • Your finger on the pulse of security and privacy best practices, emerging threats, regulations and security solutions that fit our organization without compromising our ability to serve our brave entrepreneurial clientele
    • You thrive in a cloud-based, continuous delivery environment that is primarily comprised of Mac users (but you are comfortable with PCs too!)Familiarity with an array of programming languages including Ruby, Python, Django, and JavaScript
    • A natural ability to build relationships and define processes in order to promote security/privacy awareness and further embed these values into our organizational culture
    • As the subject matter expert, you also understand the culture at Wave and know how to get buy-in on new practices
    • Because you live and breathe security and privacy regulations, you won’t simply react to situations, you will be proactive in mitigating risk, often preventing incidents before they happen
    • Prior experience implementing security systems (e.g. Threatstack, container security scanner, cloudpassage etc.), PCI, as well as privacy standards and legislation (e.g. GDPR, SOC2 and ISO27001)
