I spent most of my career as a software engineer and was recently offered a role as product / application security architect at a large company. I’m seriously considering this as it may be a good opportunity to do something different and interesting. However this would be my first role focused on security (I did AppSec at another company before but it wasn’t the main focus). It’s not supposed to be an enterprise security role (not devsecops).
Can someone help me understand how the day to day in such a role could look like? What are your opinions about it? Is it as stressful and soul consuming as other sec roles I keep hearing about?
