About us :

At ASB, we're all about doing what we can to help our customers get "One Step Ahead" by giving them the tools they need to manage their lives and plans for their families and future.

Our products don't just serve ads or stream movies - they underpin our economy and touch people's lives.

About the Practice :

The Architecture, Strategy and Innovation Practice work across ASB to help us reach our goals through discovering current architectures, defining target state architectures and creating roadmaps that show transitional architectural models, moving between the current and future states.

They are pioneers, visionaries, and are nuts about turning technology strategy into reality, through collaboration.

About the role :

The focus of our Security is keeping things safe and doing things in a secure way. Sounds easy enough, but this can get complicated in a chunky, enterprise banking environment and this is where the Security Architect steps in.

As a Security Architect, you'll provide a consulting security lens within the Practice and through our Tribes, around what is and isn't possible, guiding them away from things that are too risky, set up guardrails, assurance, controls, and directing the security policy to what safe, sound and secure looks like and how this should be done.

You'll bring our security strategy to life through taking high level policy statements and roadmaps, and architecturally fleshing them out into capability, plans and structure that enable our Engineering Practice to build and deliver based on this work.

Relationships are key, as the Security Architect partners with a variety of people and has close relationships with our Security / Cyber Practice, forming a united front in sharing knowledge and protecting ASB Bank.

This may sound like a tall order, but you have a supportive practice backing you, Tribes singing out for your skills and a passion to embrace the new .

So, it should all be a walk in the park for someone like you.

Speaking of which . About you :

We're pretty open to how you started your tech career, this could've been in the infrastructure space as a Network Engineer or as Software Engineer building secure code, but the key thing is that you've built up your architectural experience to demonstrate deep knowledge of keeping things secure and trusted, in an enterprise environment, championing security best practice.

You realise security is part of a bigger picture, and understand how security works in business processes, applications and technologies, dependencies on different ecosystems, and how this ties together in an enterprise environment.

You are a realistic problem solver enabling the business to make well informed decisions on risk / reward trade-offs.

Your great communication and people skills will help you build relationships, understand and communicate complex information, and get different people on board with the same plan.

You'll be excited about the new, live on the cusp of new technology and how this can make what we do, better.

As a starter for success, we'd love some of the following experience and skills :

  • 5+ years' experience as a Security Engineer, Consultant or Architect, in an enterprise environment
  • Demonstrated understanding of the disciplines of security architecture
  • Designing solutions with a security bent
  • Experience implementing security controls in a cloud environment
  • SABSA certification would be great, but isn't essential
  • What's in it for you?

    In our diverse and accepting environment, our people grow their agile mind-set, learn, evolve and utilise their skills, while being empowered to make decisions.

    We offer a competitive salary and bonus, great banking benefits, heaps of personal and career development opportunities, flexible working styles, extra holidays and parental benefits.
