    Responsibilities

    Including but not limited to:

    • Working to agree security and privacy standards with internal stakeholders based on the best industry practices and develop roadmaps which can balance both risk and reality.
    • Performing design reviews, vulnerability assessments and security testing as well as threat modelling of the company’s services and products.
    • Provide expertise on security throughout the software development lifecycle and lead cross-function security initiatives.

    What you can expect

    • Strong work/life balance and flexible working post-Covid.
    • Strong focus on growth and development: regular discussions with your manager about your personal goals on top of a learning and conference allowance.
    • Ownership and autonomy: they give people problems to solve rather than specifications to implement, you’ll have end-to-end ownership (deciding on the solution, implementing it, releasing it, maintaining it).
    • Clear career progression.
