The Opportunity

There are few opportunities in your career to join a high growth start up. This is one of them. We have an amazing team, a great brand, global clients, and we’re just getting started. We are small enough that everyone matters, and your work will have a direct impact on our next stage of growth by enabling strategic deals with large, security-conscious organisations.

We’re looking for an articulate, collaborative, and self-motivated person who is keen to take the next step in their career. Our ideal candidate will be able to apply their in-depth knowledge of information security management best-practices to secure our systems and processes, and guide us towards internationally-recognised security certifications.

This will largely involve defining and implementing security policies and procedures and educating internal and external stakeholders to drive compliance across the business; you’ll play a significant role in ensuring the protection of our clients, users and staff.


- Define, disseminate, and enforce Information Security policies, standards, and procedures
- Design, develop, and implement effective security controls for systems, services and accounts
- Increase security awareness across the company through communication and training
- Proactively identify operational security risks, providing guidance for mitigation activities
- Manage security and access requests in an auditable manner, with regular access reviews
- Oversee security incident response, including necessary protective or corrective measures
- Coordinate external penetration testing activities, and assessment of remediation requirements
- Perform internal vulnerability testing, coordinating remediation tasks with engineering team
- Collaborate with Site Reliability Engineers to develop and validate Disaster Recovery plans
- Maintain and promote awareness of emerging security threats and vulnerabilities
- Engage with external auditors to demonstrate compliance with our Information Security Program

Ideal Experience

- Experience in a similar role or related discipline (systems or network administration, operations, risk management, security engineering, etc.)
- Knowledge of security controls associated with firewalls, email, web, endpoints, operating systems (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), intrusion detection/prevention, and networks
- Demonstrable experience with information security management and compliance frameworks such as EU GDPR, ISO 27001, SOC2, PCI DSS, or HIPAA
- Ability to communicate security concepts and threats to technical and non-technical audiences, across all levels of the organisation
- Keen lateral and critical thinking skills, to identify and prioritize risks and their mitigations

Desirable Skills (not a deal-breaker)

- Good understanding of public cloud platforms and technologies, such as AWS and Kubernetes
- Experience implementing policies, procedures, and controls from the ground-up, to achieve industry-recognised information security certification
- Security accreditations (CISM, CISSP, GSEC, CompTIA Security+, etc.) are highly regarded
- Passion for automating repetitive tasks through scripting (e.g. Python, Bash, PowerShell, etc.)
