When you’re passionate about what you do and where you work, the rest comes easy. That’s the culture at Central 1 Credit Union, and that’s precisely what we’re looking for from you. Supporting nearly 150 member credit unions across British Columbia and Ontario, we’re the backbone of the credit union system in both provinces – taking care of everything from online services and product development, to payment processing, trade association services and more.
Our team of over 600 employees represent some of the most innovative, passionate individuals you’ll ever meet; people who honestly care about the organization, its members and each other. In other words, people who love what they do.
The Application Security Specialist will have extensive experience in full stack Java development, be comfortable articulating the principles of secure coding to the Development and Technology teams within Central 1, and enjoy identifying and remediating application vulnerabilities for breakfast. The ideal candidate is expected to improve the security posture of Central 1’s application portfolio through not only the direct application of their skills in the areas of Threat modelling, Secure coding methodology and Application Vulnerability testing, but also in educating others to build our Information Security capabilities across the organisation.
The ability to adapt to a varied audience and work well with others is a key component in this role, as project teams will rely on the resource’s experience and analytical skills to effective identify and prioritize threats and both suggest and coach the development of effective controls. In order to effectively report and assess security capabilities, the ideal candidate will be responsible for maintaining and growing the penetration and application vulnerability testing program at Central 1. They should be familiar with commercial off the shelf testing tools such as vulnerability scanners, intercepting proxies and be capable of writing exploits using a language of their choosing.
Additional responsibilities may include involvement in the implementation of new security solutions, leading in the creation of security architecture documentation and/or maintenance of policies, standards, baselines, and guidelines.
