Being a domain expert and evangelist of cybersecurity best practices you share your time between advising technical teams, representing the Cybersecurity team in architecture committees and working groups, mentoring fellow Security Engineers on secure cloud-native applications and architectures, and generally speaking building modern security solutions that scale.

  • You believe in the importance of a risk-based and pragmatic approach, supported by a clear, balanced, and argued communication, to succeed in your mission.
  • You are curious, rigorous, and enjoy exploring new methods and technologies. You are transparent in your communication and are able to find solutions with your team when you don't have an answer.
  • You are passionate about cybersecurity, hands-on, and eager to contribute code to our in-house modern security technologies.
  • You like to share knowledge and make your colleagues aware of good cybersecurity practices, by supporting your proposals with concrete examples and demonstrations.
  • Your skills are recognized by certifications such as (ISC)² CISSP, CCSP or CSSLP, SANS GCSA, GWEB or GDSA, CSA CCSK - or you are ready to obtain it in the near future.
  • You want to join a challenging technical environment: AWS, GCP, Kubernetes, Terraform, Datadog, Spinnaker, Cloudflare, etc., where you can learn, develop and gain responsibility.
  • Great verbal and written communication skills, in English.
Why should you join us: 
  • A meaningful job: through hard work, you will help avoid thousands of tons of electronic waste and fight against planned obsolescence. It counts!
