£65,000 to £75,000 plus excellent benefits (Work Level 5)
Manchester city centre (hybrid working)

We’re looking for a Security Dev Ops Engineer to join us in Manchester to help integrate security practices into the software development process; making sure our applications are secure and reliable. In this role you’ll work in a hybrid way – splitting your time between home and the office.

Working closely with our development and operations teams, you’ll spot potential security risks and vulnerabilities and implement the right solutions. We’ll look to you to help promote a secure development culture across Co-op, making sure we’re always improving our security practices.

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with our development and operations teams to integrate security best-practices into the software development lifecycle (SDLC)
  • Conduct security assessments and code reviews to identify and resolve potential risks and vulnerabilities in applications and systems
  • Implement and maintain security tools for continuous monitoring and testing
  • Support colleagues with responding to and solving security-related issues
  • Deliver appropriate training and workshops to colleagues; helping to promote a security-conscious culture across Co-op

This role would suit people who have

  • Experience in a software development, systems administration or security role
  • A strong understanding of secure coding practices and common software vulnerabilities (e.g. OWASP Top 10)
  • Good communication skills, with the ability to translate often complex language to a non-technical audience
  • Familiarity with modern software development methodologies (e.g. Agile and DevOps)
  • Familiarity with cloud security concepts and practices (e.g. AWS and Azure)

Why Co-op?

  • Private healthcare
  • An annual bonus (based on personal and business performance)
  • 28 days holiday (rising to 32 with service) plus bank holidays
  • A pension with up to 10% employer contributions
  • Access to a subsidised onsite gym (at our Manchester HQ)
  • Coaching and training to support your career development
  • Wagestream – a money management app that gives you access to a percentage of your pay as you earn it
  • YuLife – an app that rewards you for exercising with discounts and vouchers for your favourite brands
