Role: Backend Security Engineer

Location: 1 day per week in Berlin office (Wednesday, company day)

Package: up to circa €80,000 (with flexibility for a superstar)

Are you a backend engineer who has touched security but would like to be focused on this area moreso? Like the speed of a startup but want the security of AI space and a company thats ran for 11 years already? Look no further

Who you would join:

A B2B2C language and translation focused business who recently released a number of new ML software products; Founded in 2012, Series B, with 80 people within the business, their product suite continues to grow like no other;

The role:

You would join the backend API team and work directly with the CTO looking at all things security within the business, across infrastucture, platform and org level. You will improve the implementation of their infra security, working with software engineers, system engineers, data engineers and IT Managers.

Your profile?
What I love about this company is they don't expect a Security Expert, as long as you have some security exposure, alongside backend experience, they are happy to train you up. What is important is some exposure to on-prem or cloud providers, and are happy in a start-up fast paced environment!

Please ensure your security experience is obvious on your cv.
