Security Engineer - SOC


Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 11 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.

Current banking systems don’t let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.

So, we’re building a new one.

And, we’re looking for a Security Engineer with focus on SOC to join our Security Operations team in Tallinn, who is responsible for the global security features of the Wise products.  

For our customers, using Wise should feel as simple as sending a text message. Yet behind our app and website lies a complex, one-of-a-kind engine of currencies and routes that’s being designed, built and powered by our talented teams in cities around the world. With new capabilities being built every day, there’s still a lot to figure out, and we can’t do it alone. This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Wise’s mission, grow as a product leader and help save millions more people money.  

The Security Operations Team is responsible for technical security concerns, security incident response lifecycle and AppSec across the company. We work together with product teams to minimise the amount of vulnerabilities introduced into wise products and we act as the first line of defence for attacks aimed against us internally or externally. 

Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the Engineering Team:

  • Help us detect, analyse and mitigate attacks or abuses across the company. You’ll be acting as a 2nd line Security Engineer in SOC.
  • You will be improving and developing Wise security monitoring solutions and helping relevant teams to solve problematic vectors. 
  • Together with Engineering and Platform teams you will find new ways to keep our customers and Wise safe from malicious intent while staying invisible for good customers.

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
