Senior Developer - Security - ( 2104283 )


We are the world’s learning company with more than 21,000 employees operating in 70 countries. We combine world-class educational content and assessment, powered by services and technology, to enable more effective teaching and personalized learning at scale. We believe that wherever learning flourishes, so do people.

Pearson VUE is a business of Pearson, the world's leading learning company with global-reach and market-leading businesses. Pearson is listed on both the London and New York stock exchanges (UK: PSON; NYSE: PSO).

Who is Pearson VUE?

Each year millions of people around the world take an exam with Pearson VUE. Chances are you, or someone you know, has recently tested with us. Your neighbor the computer programmer, your dad’s nurse, your child’s teacher or your local real estate agent. All demonstrate their knowledge, skill and commitment when they test with Pearson VUE.

As a security-focused developer, you will be responsible for improving application security across the platform. This will entail hands-on development work to resolve vulnerabilities as well as an increasing focus on identifying, assessing, escalating, and coordinating fixes across teams. You will work with security experts on other platforms and teams. The ideal candidate is a proven software developer who thrives working independently and is effective in collaborating and educating others. Candidates for this role are not expected to be security experts but must start with a baseline of security knowledge and a strong interest and ability to learn security. For example, you should know the basics of a SQL injection attack or how Cross Site Scripting (XSS) works; this would represent a baseline of knowledge.

Your responsibilities will include full lifecycle activities using industry best practices in an agile, results driven environment while working with a diverse group of high-performing, experienced teams. You will be expected to continually grow and challenge all of us to raise the bar even higher with your contributions to people, process and technology. We are looking for another highly collaborative team member that has a passion for excellence and innovation and knows the importance of fun, self-care and flexibility while working on a variety of complex and challenging projects.
