Our tasks are damage limitation, cleaning and restoring the systems to normal operation as quickly as possible. As part of the team, you handle everything from secure development to information security and incident response. Our philosophy is that we are more successful as a team than as individuals and we believe that security challenges are best addressed with collaboration, where different security professions come together in solution-oriented discussions. To make this work, every team member contributes and takes responsibility for the team's results. We also believe that working as a team lets us have more fun at work!
