The job in short

Meet the job

You will write secure code, review the code of your colleagues and keep the teams updated on security trends and threats. You think like a hacker: you know where to look for possible improvements. Your experience leads you to anticipate on possible scenarios. Colleagues naturally turn to you for your expert advice.

-You have excellent understanding of application security vulnerabilities, such as the OWASP
Top 10, and can educate other developers how to prevent security issues.
-You master JavaScript, CSS, HTML and related frameworks such as AngularJS, AngularUI
-You bring experience within a product-driven organisation.
-Bringing one or more security certifications such as CSSLP, CISSP, GSSP-JAVA, GWEB or CEH will be a big plus.
