Bio Picture

© Nick Klauer. All rights reserved.


I work in a lot of areas, but most recently I have focused on software engineering with a focus on security first. I have led projects on security benchmarking standards (gathering, reporting, assessing posture), container vulnerability scanning, secure image building, cloud account build automation, gitops-style RBAC role development for cloud service and team roles, and many others.Primary languages and frameworks these days include Golang, Python, AWS (IAM, et al), Docker/Containerization, and "neat" tooling around IaC (Terraform, CFN, OPA, YAML-as-a-Programming-Language (🤣), etc.)


A little about me: I am...

  • A single dad of 4 amazing boys

  • Senior Software Engineer with over 14 years of experience

  • Army Reservist with 18+ years served concurrently

There's a lot to say in these three little bullet points, but I won't spend that time telling you here. Feel free to contact me to find out more!
