You will also provide security consult and help engineering teams to seamlessly manage (i.e., grant, revoke, audit, and analyze) their data access. Additionally, you will influence the company security policy, standards, and priorities with regards to IAM, and you will provide mentorship and guidance to level-up your teammates.
