Chicago, Illinois

Open to Remote

Full Time

$165k - $175k

Job Description We are assisting a non-profit organization focused on research in recruiting a full-time System and Security Operations Manager. The position offers remote work, with the requirement to be present in the Chicago office 3-4 times. The company prefers candidates in the Central or Eastern time zones. The organization plays a crucial role in supporting universities, research institutions, and scientists in managing and securely sharing their research data. Their commitment is to enable researchers to concentrate on their work while ensuring the security and seamless sharing of their findings with other institutions.

This role encompasses three key areas. The first involves central operations, focusing on VPN, on and offboarding, accounting for about 10-20% of your time. The second, and the largest segment, is in DevOps, where you'll contribute to tasks such as supporting monitoring, IAM, and managing cloud accounts. The third aspect involves collaborating with the security manager to ensure the implementation of security DevOps practices. The ideal candidate is expected to have sufficient security experience, particularly in dealing with HIPAA compliance, although direct responsibility for compliance writing is not required. Familiarity with SOC and other regulatory policies would be beneficial, as the role involves working within a compliance-oriented environment. Overall, it's a DevOps team with a significant focus on security, leading to a natural overlap with compliance aspects. Required Skills & Experience

  • Familiarity and utilization of container technology and orchestration tools (ECS, Kubernetes, Docker).
  • Mastery in constructing infrastructure that adheres to policy frameworks (such as NIST 800-*, SOC 2, FISMA), and operating services that necessitate compliance with security regulations (preference for HIPAA, GDPR).
