(Remote Work) Application Security Engineer – Wise

Job Overview:

  • Company Website: https://wise.com/
  • Remote Locations: United States
  • Job Type: Full Time

Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 11 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.

Current banking systems don’t let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.

  • So, we’re building a new one.

And, we’re looking for a Security Engineer with focus on AppSec to join our Security Operations team in Tallinn or London who is responsible for the global security features of the Wise products.

For our customers, using Wise should feel as simple as sending a text message. Yet behind our app and website lies a complex, one-of-a-kind engine of currencies and routes that’s being designed, built and powered by our talented teams in cities around the world. With new capabilities being built every day, there’s still a lot to figure out, and we can’t do it alone.

This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Wise’s mission, grow as a product leader and help save millions more people money.

The Security Operations Team is responsible for technical security concerns, security incident response lifecycle and AppSec across the company. We work together with product teams to minimise the amount of vulnerabilities introduced into Wise products. And we act as the first line of defence for attacks aimed against us internally or externally.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Working closely with product engineers and finding new ways to protect our customer data and funds
  • Teaching engineers how to conduct threat modelling exercises and promoting good security engineering practices to our internal engineering community
  • Handling our bug-bounty program and external researchers to discover and fix existing problems in our products in collaboration with product engineers

  • Experience with security tooling such as SAST, DAST and dependency scanning

  • Great communication and convincing skills and the ability to articulate complex technical concepts to other Wisers
  • Able to run your projects in collaboration with other teams and find the path for success
  • Application pentesting experience

Some extra skills that would be great:

  • Software engineering experience
  • Experience with conceiving and delivering theoretical and practical training sessions to engineers
  • Experience with microservice architecture
  • A basic understanding of statistics and Machine Learning
  • You know how to secure infrastructure in AWS
