Job post on "Application Security Manager" for The Hut Group (in Northwich, UK)

Here is a real cool opportunity to work for a company that is focused on Application Security and developing innovative solutions to embed Application Security into the SDL (disclamer: I'm currently contracting for them as interim 'Head of Application Security')

You can see full details at and here is the main description
We are looking for an individual to who can take a hands-on approach to build and run an industry leading application security team. The Application Security Manager will develop, implement and run a secure application development program, with supporting standards and processes, and formal methodologies where relevant. 
Securing our applications and customer data is critical to the success of our business. The Application Security Manager will be a security evangelist who can translate security concepts to technical and non-technical audiences, and will approach application security from the perspective of business risk. This person will be the leading authority for Application Security within the group.
In addition to being an AppSec expert, the key for this role is to have significant development experience/knowledge.

A large part of the work is in supporting the existing network of Security Champions and working with devs/architects on figuring out how to secure the wide variety of apps they are developing (see here and here for more details on what these Security Champions do)

You can apply for the job at that LinkedIn page, and let them know that you saw this on my blog :)
