Our Security Team at Nubank

Technology is not a sector of our business: it's intrinsic to every area at Nubank. We encourage everyone to challenge the status quo. There's no "innovation team" - we hire innovative people for all our positions and encourage them to constantly question decisions to keep finding better ways to do something. Our business is growing, and our engineering team must match that demand.

As we grow, we need to:

  • Find new techniques and technologies, multiplying efficiency through tools and libraries;
  • Balance new processes while staying agile;
  • Learn quickly and easily adapt to changing situations and priorities;
  • Sustainable scale diverse teams.

What is a typical day for an Information Security Specialist?​

This special role is inside our Growth Security team.

We are living a fast pace of growth, and one way of accelerating our business capability is through inorganic growth acquisitions: primarily mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and outsourcing (BPO).
