You will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in a crazy diverse set of topics across our whole business.

 What you’ll do

You will work on challenging projects and automating of different, difficult manual tasks. You will solve hard problems effectively and find the right balances between risk and effort.

Nothing gives you more energy than learning about how to manage real risks and working out great solutions that will keep working into the future. In your spare time you like to explore security tools, technologies and work on side projects.

  • You have real integrity and dedication to act to protect our colleagues, customers, partners and business
  • Open to the idea that information security problems need people-based as much as technology-based solutions
  • Have some experience in shipping code using secure coding practices and have exposure to full-stack development
