You will also collaborate with, influence and if necessary be confident to challenge, your colleagues as part of this critical role - to ensure the most practical secure solution is implemented.

You will make a real impact to our platform's development and at the same time widen your skillset and progress your career in a technology driven environment and in a highly sought after set of technologies.
