Who is ControlPlane?

We are a London based cloud technology company, helping to keep people safe online. We work with cloud providers and their customers to secure the building blocks of the internet, by offering consulting, training and products related to cloud native development, security and operations.

ControlPlane’s priority is to continue to be a leader in the Kubernetes and Cloud DevSecOps space. We secure the next generation of software systems and provide a clear, risk-based adoption guide for organisations looking to implement best practices.

Trusted by Google Cloud, UK Home Office, JPMC, among many others, our clients are world leading organisations.

What We’re Looking For in a Cloud Native Golang Developer

We are looking for cloud native engineers and consultants at all levels to represent the technical and cultural values of ControlPlane, leading our customers by example in the complex and fast-changing world of cloud native technology. You will perform a mix of client consulting, working on internal labs projects, and contributing to Open Source projects on ControlPlane’s behalf.

You will build tooling for the Kubernetes ecosystem, working alongside our world-class security colleagues to deliver effective and hardened applications. Security knowledge is not a prerequisite; we are a highly collaborative team and threat modelling and security testing are performed as group activities.

This is a unique job role within a successful start-up company where you will have the chance to make a positive impact, learn, grow and work with great colleagues who consistently challenge the status quo.

This is a remote position, and when offices reopen we invite you to spend a few days a month in-person at our London office: this is optional and we aim to be entirely flexible to your needs. As a leader in the cloud native community there are opportunities for international travel.
