• Overview

    We are SoftwareMill - a group of various individuals: total geeks, humanists, fans of fantasy and karate, Apple and Android enthusiasts. Both our differences and shared values allow us to create one of the most employee-friendly companies in the IT industry. We work 100% remotely, from our homes scattered all over Poland (but not only!).

    Interested in joining our team? See what it takes to become a SoftwareMiller!

    We’re looking to expand our team with a brand new position, security specialist. You’ll have the opportunity to codify the security policies, oversee their implementation, propose necessary training for other team members and participate in securing the applications that we implement for our clients.

    So far we shared the above responsibilities among multiple people, but as we grow, we feel that it’s time for a dedicated person to take the reins.

    We’ve gathered some rough areas we feel should be addressed, but your primary task will be to build a security culture in our organisation. You’ll be working mostly with our engineers, so apart from technical skills, soft skills will be needed as well. Let’s be honest: introducing security measures in a mostly IT-conscious crowd might at times be challenging.

  • Our offer

    • Salary ranging from 900 to 1400 PLN net per day for start
    • 100% remote company with a remote-first mindset
    • Full-time but not necessarily 9-17, we are flexible
    • Professional development and freedom in choosing the toolset and tech stack
    • Learning-culture expressed by SoftwareMill Academy and the technical reading club
    • Small teams without PMs, no procedures, and no other corporate 'goodies' we all love
    • Best tools you need to make your work pleasurable and effective: monitor(s), workstation of your choice
    • IT-friendly environment with passionate and skilled people who believe in clean code and software craftsmanship - you will have a chance to meet some of them during the recruitment process
    • Interesting projects with technologies like Scala, Java, GCP, AWS, Azure with Kubernetes and other DevOps tools
  • Your responsibilities

    • auditing our internal infrastructure and our client's infrastructure for security vulnerabilities
    • specifying and implementing recommended security practices both internal and in client projects
    • implementing tools needed to ensure security compliance
    • securing our internal toolchain, defining recovery procedures and running drills
    • codifying internal security procedures
    • staying up to date with current security trends and new vulnerabilities
    • participating in the tendering process, helping understand and estimate security-related requirements
    • working with our team to build common understanding and foundations for introducing security measures
    • discussing security requirements with our clients
    • consulting with our development teams on best security practices
    • taking part in building secure software delivery pipelines, especially in the area of dependency management
    • leading us through certifications that are valuable from a business perspective

    Our goal is to build a security culture that’s way beyond “industry standards”, at the same time remaining pragmatic and practical. We only want to introduce security regulations because they are needed, not because they look good. What adds to the challenge: we’re remote from the day the company was created. This means that we’ll have to face the unique challenges of a modern remote workplace.

  • What we expect

    • Very good knowledge of IT security and risk management domain
    • At least 3 years of commercial experience in security area
    • Experience with audits, security certification processes and compliance platforms
    • Understanding of the wide set of security challenges in a remote organisation
    • Very good communication and people skills to introduce security measures among the team members
    • Ability to write down succinct, easy to follow procedures
    • Analytical skills with strong problem solving capabilities, sometimes with out of the box approach

    • Polish language is required, as internally we are a Polish speaking company
  • Nice to have

    • Security/risk management trainings and certificates
    • Prior experience in cooperation with software consultancy / software house companies
