You’ll be taking the lead on software security testing, becoming a trusted go-to and SME for our stakeholders

It’s a varied role and you’ll be getting involved in application threat modelling activities, code vulnerability scanning, planning and conducting infrastructure and application penetration testing and automating the production of scalable documentation and reports for our clients. You’ll also collaborate and coach our software engineering teams on coding best practice and resolving identified security issues.
