Security Architect


Position Overview

As an experienced Security professional in the Autodesk Trust division, you will apply your diverse security and technology skills to guide security practices in a rapidly evolving landscape. Drawing on your extensive experience in security and information technology domains such as systems architecture, software architecture, cloud systems, network engineering, and security engineering, you’ll establish or enable foundational standards, design patterns, and reference architectures. You will help Autodesk to understand and implement Security requirements at business scale.

Autodesk embraces a hybrid-work policy, and you will work remotely from your Canada-based home office with a team of Security Architects, reporting to a senior manager. Operating across all divisions of Autodesk, you’ll ensure a comprehensive approach to security strategy. Your work informs security needs for the entire lifecycle of Autodesk products and services, encompassing creation, design, development, testing, implementation, and ongoing operation. In your role, you will not only apply your existing security expertise but also further develop and refine your skills within the context of Autodesk’s large-scale operations.

Your role as a security architect does not have managerial responsibility. However, you will be comfortable as a technical leader, actively seeking, influencing, forming, and leading development of Security requirements across all Autodesk with numerous stakeholder types and formats.
