In this role, you will be designing and implementing security functions ranging from checks on IaC (Infrastructure as Code) to SAST/DAST scanners in our CI/CD pipelines. You will be collaborating closely with almost every part of the Meltwater organization and help create security impact across all teams with strong support from the business.
