The opportunity
This isn’t an ordinary cloud role, we know everyone claims this and will tell you their role is super unique. But this one really is. You are constantly researching, learning, totally geeking out on all things cloud security related, from Kubernetes to AWS, and then taking that knowledge and creating labs. You will be educating the world of cloud security professionals on how to make sure they are secure in what they do. Now that is a pretty cool legacy to leave behind.

No more 4am call outs. No more working over Christmas. Just upskilling yourself to be tremendously knowledgeable and sharing that knowledge of best practice with the world. 

Your main responsibilities :

  • Planning, writing and improving cloud security labs, challenges and online learning content on the Immersive Labs platform
  • Produce multi-format content utilising various teaching methods; practical exercises, questions & gamification
  • Test Cloud Security labs to ensure they function as expected
  • Work with the Engineering and Content teams on new projects/products and how best to deploy them

To be successful (be a good idea to make sure this is on your CV):

  • Proven track record of working in production-critical infrastructures and Cloud environments with a security focus this could be within a DevSecOps, Cloud security or SRE function
  • Knowledge in the AWS or Azure ecosystem including expertise with security, identity  & access
  • Containerisation experience, (we use Docker and Kubernetes)
  • Familiar with Serverless technologies
  • Knowledgeable in network, firewall and security best practices
  • Experience with infrastructure automation and deployment, specifically Terraform and Cloudformation
  • Understanding of cloud monitoring tools
  • Hands-on experience with software development, cloud infrastructure, IT services, networking, or security
  • A commitment to scripting, particularly Python would be an advantage

Immersive Labs’ growth has been fuelled by our values that underpin everything we do, here’s how they relate to this role:

Inclusive – being respectful of different ideas, and encouraging a psychologically safe environment
Driven – to create the best content 
Agile – being able to pivot to business demands
