Position Summary...

What you'll do...

Are you ready to drive the technical vision of a complex, highly focused organization?  An organization which has redefined traditional Risk and Compliance management to the point where it informs the Global InfoSec priorities of the Fortune One and largest company in the world?  Are you ready to bring your skills to a company that embraces and deploys modern technologies like robotics and autonomous vehicles, all in support of making people's lives easier?    

About Team: Information Security Risk and Compliance
At Walmart, we prioritize innovation and data security. Our team is dedicated to maintaining a secure operating environment and preserving the trust of our customers, associates, and stakeholders. We combine a range of services and expertise to prevent fraud, detect threats, and manage digital risk and access. Our focus is on mitigating attack risks, securing cloud transformation, and fostering a culture of security and reliability within our team

What you'll do:

Your day will include teaching and learning from other technologists across the organization.  One day you may be inventing a way to identify security issues without any traditional scanning means. The next you might be driving the development of a container security solution.  On another day, you might be incorporating empirical risk measurement capabilities with the results of Red Team Campaigns and third-party vendor assessments to determine major InfoSec spend and strategic initiatives.  You may even spend a day collaborating with Infrastructure and InfoSec cloud computing leads to develop a secure deployment strategy for Walmart.   One thing is for sure – you’ll never be bored.

What you'll bring:

You are a senior technologist who understands vulnerability identification, analysis and mitigation strategies and how to prioritize program goals in a risk informed manner.  You understand the various components of Network and Application Penetration testing, Red Teaming, Cyber Intelligence Operations, Decision Science and Decision Automation.  More importantly, you are able to synthesize the outputs of all of these disciplines into a coherent technical strategy that can be executed both in the long and short term.  You can provide technical mentoring and training for junior technical talent to enable them to grow their careers while contributing significantly to Walmart. You are a creative thinker who can find new ways of solving age-old problems.  You’re not afraid to upset the status quo. 

Where would we see your biggest strengths?

  • Cloud environment experience
  • Enterprise level integrations
  • Forward thinking solutions
  • Ability to engage in interdisciplinary discussions across a range of environments
  • An Influencing leadership style - leading without direct authority

What do you NEED to have?

  • An inquisitive mind unbound by existing convention.
  • Experience and knowledge of working in a large-scale enterprise / company.
  • Knowledge of cloud security, Risk Analysis, and data science
  • A desire to investigate and evaluate new technologies
  • A logical demeanor
