What we're looking for:
You're a software development engineer with some experience working on security issues and architecture. We'd like you to partner with our internal customers as they look to build secure design and functionality into their work.

We hope you'll also be passionate about contributing to the success of programs, technologies, and your organisation, constantly seeking opportunities to support innovative new ways of working.
Our Global Security Organisation (GSO) covers a range of areas from network/firewall security through to endpoint management and security research.
