Full-Time Developer Advocate

oak9 – Posted by Chicago, Illinois, United States

Job Description

Industry background: 
As more companies move key parts of their business to the cloud, it’s critical to ensure that data and information are secure. Two functions that play a key role are developers and security teams. To date, innovation has been focused on development teams – who can now do more, faster. The security teams are not able to keep up and that creates risk for the organization.
The company: 
The oak9 platform analyzes infrastructure-as-code and builds security into cloud native applications so they are secure and compliant by design.
We are passionate about removing the friction between development and security so businesses can achieve velocity & agility without compromising on security.
