  • Design and implement secure automation solutions for development, testing, and production environments.
  • Build and maintain CI/CD pipelines using tools such as Tekton and other CI/CD technologies.
  • Manage Kubernetes clusters for container orchestration, ensuring high availability, scalability, and resilience.

  • Develop Infrastructure as Code (IaC) using Terraform to provision and manage GCP resources.
  • Ensure container security by managing container images, scanning for vulnerabilities, and implementing best practices.

  • Collaborate with development teams to incorporate security considerations and compliance standards into the development process.
  • Monitor and respond to security incidents, and continuously improve incident response strategies.
  • Stay current with new technologies and security trends to advise on potential impacts to the organization.
  • Qualifications

    You'll have

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology or related field or a combination of education and equivalent work experience
  • 3+ years of experience in a DevSecOps role with a strong focus on security practices.
  • 2+ years utilizing Kubernetes for container orchestration.
  • 2+ years with CI/CD tools, specifically Tekton, or similar technologies.
  • Even better, you may have

  • Master's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related field
  • Strong understanding of cloud services, preferably Google Cloud Platform (GCP), including hands-on experience with GCP services and management.
  • Expertise in writing and managing Terraform modules for IaC.
  • Knowledge of container security principles and experience with container image scanning tools.
  • Familiarity with scripting and automation using languages such as Python, Bash, or similar.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work effectively in a team environment.
  • Relevant certifications (e.g., CKAD/CKA, Terraform Associate, GCP Professional DevOps Engineer) are considered a plus.
  • You may not check every box, or your experience may look a little different from what we've outlined, but if you think you can bring value to Ford Motor Company, we encourage you to apply!
