ADP is hiring a Data Security Infrastructure Developer

Are you ready to help us design the future-state to secure and govern our Data?

It’s the Wild West, in terms of Data Security….sure there are some claims of those who’ve struck it rich, and have their data gold squirreled away in an impenetrable vault that’s still easy to use; but if you’ve been in or around these parts, you know in your heart of hearts, that the mother lode is out there ready to be discovered through some very hard work, and a bit of luck.

I ask you to join me in this journey to explore, innovate, and improve our security posture; and keep those pesky data bandits at bay…

As a Data Security Engineering Developer you will need to leverage all of your experience, and be willing and eager to pickup some new skills as well… here are just some of the rounds in your pair of trusty six shooters:

Programming Skills:
C#, Java, T-SQL, RegEx, PowerPlatform, PowerShell, C++/Rust, JavaScript & WebAPIs

  • Windows, Mac, & Linux application & development experience desired
  • Office Plug-In & SharePoint Framework (SPFx) experience desired

Technology Skills
FSRM, FCI, File System APIs & implementation (Windows, Linux, & MacOS wrt ADS and EFA)
Hashing, Tokenization, Digital Rights Management (DRM), MS Sensitivity Labels

Analysis Skills:
Excel, PowerBI, SQL, Graph API, and Reporting Tools

Data Security Knowledge
DLP (Storage, End Point, Network), File ACLs, Encryption & Key Management

Technology Platforms Knowledge
SharePoint, Splunk, Securiti.AI, ServiceNow, NetApp, Windows, Linux, MacOS, BitBucket

Leadership / Process Mindset
Advise, Develop, & Coordinate among multiple cross-discipline teams to establish sustainable processes to improve data security, while minimizing the impact to the average associate and reducing security incidents globally.

Developer Level (Developer, Senior, Lead) commensurate with experience, education, certifications, and ability.

Primary Focus for this role will be developing desktop/installed applications to integrate security into everyday used applications by ADP associates: File Explorer (enhancement/replacement), SharePoint & O365 Plug-Ins, PowerApp/ServiceNow Intake & Coordination processes, & PowerBI Reporting and Analytics delivery, and the back-end micro-services to support it all … so flexibility and self-learning will be key. Having experience in file systems in multiple OS’s will be of benefit; as will experience in understanding how we can apply meta-data heuristics to add security to the procedures, policies, and tools for the ADP associates.

A little about the Data Security Team:
