About the team:
At ZOE, cybersecurity forms the backbone of our operations. We firmly believe that secure systems aren’t crafted merely by stringent rules but through a harmonious integration of security into every facet of our technological culture. This understanding plays a vital role in how we construct our Platform team; a squad predominantly focused on enabling teams to ship software at their best, ensuring security is at the heart of what we do.
Our vision lies in building an environment where security is fostered organically, protecting our customers’ health and personal data. This importance assigned to security extends to the Security Engineering function, aimed at enabling effortless operations of secure products within a cloud setup, and ensuring restricted access to customer data is maintained.
Our Platform team’s mission centers around accelerating the journey of our ZOEntists to production, and security is not an exception. We empower our teams to move rapidly yet securely, delivering the building blocks they require to focus their efforts on resolving business challenges.
About the role:
We are looking for our first dedicated Security Engineer, with experience in areas of application security, cloud-native services and DevSecOps. You will be responsible for developing and implementing a pragmatic security roadmap, prioritising and executing the most impactful technical investments to protect our customers’ data. You will implement frameworks, policies and controls that make us secure by default without slowing down engineering productivity. 
You will work across the stack and with a large number of stakeholders. You will need to develop a great understanding of the business and show adaptability. Your work will span cloud infrastructure, identity and access management, permission management, data storage and processing, threat monitoring and detection, incident response, supply chain management, vulnerability management, secure coding practices, disaster recovery… This is a unique opportunity for a security generalist to take the next step in their career!
You will be…
  • Developing a security roadmap and leading technical investments to protect our assets.
  • Rolling up your sleeves and implementing the roadmap. This is a very hands-on role (Stack: Okta, GCP, GKE, BigQuery, Terraform, Github Enterprise, ArgoCD, Python, Kotlin, …).
  • Designing and ensuring cloud security, auditing or the principle of least privilege.
  • Assessing third-party SaaS providers and supporting engineering teams when integrating with them.
  • Building secure software and establishing secure coding practices together with Software Engineers and Data Scientists
  • Performing regular risk assessments.
  • Detecting, monitoring and managing security incidents.
We think you’ll be a great fit if you…
  • Have experience as a full-stack Security Engineer.
  • Enjoy being hands-on. Automating and writing code will be part of your role Tterraform, Python, Kotlin or similar).
  • Have experience in securing cloud platforms such as GCP, AWS or Azure.
  • Have a clear growth mindset and are someone who enjoys staying up to date with the latest security trends. 
  • Have experience working cross-functional and understand the business context.
  • Are familiar with security frameworks, risk management, and incident response methodologies.
