With over 100,000 users and numbers doubling every 4 months, we’re rapidly expanding, and pride ourselves on seeking out diverse perspectives when it comes to imagining our future.

Overall, we think we’re a pretty awesome team to be a part of who will always have your back!

  • Help ensure our applications are developed securely and you’ll  provide leadership in how we do this
  • Work with the Platform teams to standardise and provide security capabilities as a component of Platform service adoption across the technical organisation.
  • Autonomy to explore different solutions to security challenges, and work with technical teams to recommend and support appropriate tools and practices to our context

The skills you’ll bring:

  • At least 5 years experience in Security Engineer or Application Security related roles, with roles having a strong exposure to Software development. Previous SaaS experience is desirable, but not essential.
  • Experience in cloud migration projects (between clouds)

  • Intimate knowledge of CI/CD systems. Experience in Gitlab and Github Actions is desirable but not essential
  • Working understanding of OWASP Application Security Verification Standard and Cloud Security practices

  • Work remotely from anywhere in NZ.
  • We’re remote but not removed- we pride ourselves on connecting socially and connecting no matter what the distance is.
  • A team where everyone has a voice and a chance to impact how we succeed- when we say we’re collaborative and we’ll have your back we genuinely mean it.
