Cox Communications

At Cox, we take cybersecurity seriously. After all, we’re in the business of connecting people to products, services, and technologies they need to operate each day, so we only enlist the best in the business.  We are searching for a Lead Cybersecurity Architect to report to the Senior Director of Cybersecurity Architecture, Cloud Security, and DevSecOps.

It’s a job that requires some serious technical leadership combined with the ability to bridge organizational boundaries to design cutting-edge reference architectures and enterprise controls.

If you’re looking for this kind of challenge, keep reading.  We’ll tell you more about what you’ll do, and what experience you’ll need to have, as well as what you can expect from us.

What You’ll Do

Here are some of the primary tasks you’ll tackle:

  • Provide technical leadership and coaching not only to cybersecurity team members, but also to infrastructure, engineering, development, and business teams.
  • Develop and maintain cybersecurity reference architectures for consumption by technical and project teams.
  • Socialize cybersecurity reference architectures and provide guidance to ensure adherence to approved designs.
  • Formally develop and uphold cybersecurity team policies, standards, processes, and procedures.
  • Partner with technology and business teams to fully understand business priorities and promote cybersecurity by design.
  • Lead cost/risk tradeoff discussions with technical and business teams, helping to decide how important, and at what cost, cybersecurity requirements can be justified.
  • Negotiate cybersecurity deliverables and requirements with technical teams and vendors.
  • Identify opportunities for improving cybersecurity operations, solutions, and services then work with the team to drive change.
  • Work with vendors and maintain relationships.
  • Remain current with new cybersecurity trends, threats, and disruptive solutions and make recommendations to leadership.

What’s In It For You?

Really good question, and we have some good answers that we hope you like.

  • We want you to feel cared for and respected and that starts with Cox’s highly competitive pay and other compensation perks (401k + company matching, comprehensive medical benefits, etc.).  We also offer free Internet and other Cox discounted services (in specific Cox markets), tuition reimbursement for academic pursuits, adoption assistance, paid time off to volunteer, childcare and eldercare resources, pet insurance and much more.
  • Good work should be rewarded, and not just with a healthy paycheck.  The Cox culture is one that values people more than technology, so it’s our goal to make sure you feel recognized for your contributions.  It’s also important to work alongside colleagues who “get you.”  At Cox, you’ll find a workplace where relationships are crafted with care and successes are celebrated with high fives. We strive to create an environment where you can do you, and everyone from leadership to new hires can support and feel supported.
  • Growth is a good thing, and you’ll have access to opportunities across the Cox family of businesses that will sharpen your skills and challenge you. In the future, you may have the opportunity to cultivate customer relationships in other sectors where we operate like cleantech, health care and new forms of transportation mobility.
