So I have about 2 years of experience as a backend software dev with some DevOps experience. I expressed an interest in learning about security and was offered a job change within the company to a junior Security Engineer role, similar pay.
The job seems interesting to me. I'm a bit tired of software development and have always been curious about the world of security, but I have little experience.
Here are my questions:
What's the job market like in comparison with software dev?
This is probably company dependent, but is security engineering a more demanding job than being a software dev?
I'm not interested in getting a high level security clearance for reasons, is that something that would greatly inhibit my career growth?
Is remote work common?
I appreciate any advice I can get before making my decision on this offer!
