At ASAPP, we are on a mission to build transformative machine learning-powered products that push the boundaries of artificial intelligence and customer experience. We focus on solving complex, data-rich problems — the kind where there are huge systemic inefficiencies and where a real solution will have a significant economic impact. Our CX performance platform uses machine learning across both voice and digital engagement channels to augment and automate human work, radically increasing productivity and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of customer experience teams.
ASAPP is seeking a full-time DevOps or Cloud Security Engineer to help build and strengthen our infrastructure and incident response capabilities. You will work with fellow security engineers, and partner with the rest of the engineering organization to ensure we are securing our application and cloud infrastructure. They should be very familiar with cloud native solutions.
For this position, it is not a requirement to bring Security specific background. Instead, we are looking for someone who is hungry about learning on this topic. This individual will be part of our growing security team, and will report to our Head of Security Engineering. You will actively participate in the buildout of our cloud security infrastructure, leveraging ASAPP’s people and technology for maximum benefit, and eventually your focus will shift to architecture and design review of systems integrating with and the health and maintenance of these various AI infrastructure security components. 
As our operations keep growing, we encourage applicants from all locations in Uruguay to apply.
