About the Security Engineering team
We are 15+ and growing team that supports Tesco technology and software development teams across cloud and other cutting-edge technologies at scale. We have a new role as the security engineer for our security engineering team based in the UK. The software development teams are responsible for their own security, so we act differently than a traditional security team. We are team of security partners, not security police... and we go as far as calling ourselves as Security Partners, not Security Architects or Consultants.
Our software engineering teams have tremendous freedom in their work and the corresponding responsibility to do the right thing for our customers. Instead of controlling our engineering teams with process and security gates, we enable them to innovate by providing security guidance to make right decisions for Tesco. The good news is that our engineering teams are (usually) willing partners in doing better security, more efficiently and earlier in the process. We'd like you to help us scale out and represent ourselves for the wider engineering domains.
Tesco has fully embraced DevOps and agile methodologies to develop our enterprise APIs, services and cloud capabilities. Our 100+ delivery teams have loads of Docker, Kubernetes and microservices galore across Azure and AWS, so our security approach must work with elastic, here today, gone tomorrow infrastructure. Our security approaches should be event driven, real-time and effective. Weekly scans are so 2010.
Developing strong security partnerships for Tesco Technology
Security partnerships are about transforming the way security is delivered within our technology domains and software engineering teams, your part to play as a security partner is to actively champion positive security change within your product teams.

In other words, we want you to innovate and will give you the room to do so. If you can think of ways to do security, faster, more accurately, with greater consistency and at scale while minimizing friction, you'll be supported all the way.
Ideally, you will bring the following:
