Cloud technologies bring a lot of exciting improvements to developers, organizations and users. New cloud solutions offer opportunities to build new products and solutions, migrate off legacy applications, and take advantage of new development tools, methodologies, and orchestration capabilities that are native to cloud platforms.
You will be working directly with clients, both individually and leading teams, to guide them in their cloud journey - from design to operations. As a Cloud Security Architect with CrossCountry Consulting, you will help clients design their cloud architectures for maximum security, while maintaining a balance of new security capabilities and simplicity. You will need to help your clients understand the benefits of the new technologies that can be offered by cloud providers (including containers, security automation, orchestration tools, and new workflows) and working with them to design, implement and learn how they can leverage these effectively. You will guide them in integrating these new capabilities and technologies into their existing security and governance processes, and uplifting those processes where needed.
We look for Consultants who think outside the box and seek to provide creative and efficient approaches to today's toughest challenges in Cyber. You will be joining a growing team, with opportunities to help build and improve our cyber capabilities.
