At WeTransfer we are trusted everyday by millions of people with their professional, creative and personal content. We focus on making 'beautifully obvious' products, and our goal is to bring 'beautifully secure' to life as well. Security should not come at the expense of user experience, rather it is an integral part of keeping our users in their flow, creating comfort in the knowledge that their hard work is well protected.

As a Senior Information Security Specialist at WeTransfer you will be part of the team that is responsible for helping to build a persistent, positive, and most of all sustainable security culture. We believe in a security culture that is less about jumping down people's throats than it is teaching them how to improve. You will perform a key role in driving forward, developing and implementing our security program, raising awareness level across the organization and ensuring that we follow the security best-practices.

What kind of impact will you have at WeTransfer?

Through your collaboration with colleagues throughout the organization, you'll contribute to key projects and initiatives that impact our security. By coordinating with stakeholders across teams, you'll drive an effective implementation of our security program, our standards and guidelines, providing fit for purpose security recommendations. With your technical expertise you will support us in our approach to not just tick the box, but to gain knowledge by following best practices and embed security in our mindset and daily work. Security standards can feel stiff, but at WeTransfer we are all about creativity, and our goal is to find a balance between the two.

What you’ll be working on:
  • You'll collaborate closely with Counter Abuse, Application Security, IT and Privacy teams 
  • You'll support (or maybe even drive) our effort to maintain or gain new Information Security certifications 
  • You'll compile risk assessment or security reports that might end up with the Senior Leadership team 
  • You'll work on cultivating a security mentality across the organization
  • You'll perform Information security requirements checks to mitigate possible the risks 
  • You'll raise security awareness, for example by organizing, delivering and managing security trainings
  • You'll advise and educate stakeholders on risks, and provide recommendations based on role related competencies

  • What we are looking for:
  • A solid knowledge of ISO27001 and SOC2 standards
  • Hands-on experience in developing, implementing and maintaining Information Security policies
  • You are able to define initiatives, with realistic timelines and clear business purposes—and you manage to deliver your work in the agreed timeframe
  • You have experience with InfoSec audits, risk assessment and risk management, governance and compliance
  • You have the ability to lead complex projects and establish collaborative relationships with different teams
  • You got deep technical knowledge of security concepts and understanding of complex IT systems

  • It's a plus if you hold a CISSP, CISM, ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor, or a comparable certification
  • And if you have some coding or scripting skills you'll also get bonus points
  • Research shows that women and members from underrepresented communities are less likely to apply to jobs if they don't match all of the requirements. If that sounds familiar to you, please share your application with us anyway. We look forward to it!

    WeTransfer is an equal opportunity employer and we pride ourselves on the diversity of our people. We welcome you, and everything that makes you—well, you. That includes your gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, or disability status.

    A note on remote
    Our work environment is hybrid-remote, meaning that we support our employees to work remotely and in the office. We encourage employees to decide for themselves and with their team whether or when to go to the office. However, we recommend that you don't come to the office more than 2-3 per week - since that wouldn't be hybrid anymore.

    While it is not necessarily a determining or disqualifying factor for any role, you may be required to complete a standard employment background screening.
