Who we are

The Workshop is a tech company that develops intuitive software for the online gaming industry. Our motto is to move “Fearlessly Forward” together. Cooperative innovation is at the center of everything we do – from our games, new products and technologies, to how we collaborate and share inspiration with one another.

What we believe

We understand that great ideas come from great people, and great people thrive when they’re trusted to challenge, change, improve, and perfect our products and processes. Our forte lies in the diversity of our skills – and that comes from the diversity of our people.

Our commitment to you

The Workshop is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace, where we all learn together, trust each other, and value collaboration. We welcome candidates of all genders, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, nationality, belief (or lack thereof), and programming language preference. As an equal opportunity employer, we offer a friendly, supportive working environment for all. It’s a place where you can try new ideas, take risks, and enjoy the support to move Fearlessly Forward.

What you'll do

You will provide guidance on a diverse set of security matters for our software development division. If you are comfortable building and guiding a cohesive set of Security capabilities, developing and implementing appropriate security policies, protocols and procedures to mitigate potential risks to our business, we want to hear from you!

You will have opportunity to lead and drive real change across a myriad of projects, programmes and initiatives across our business. Key to success will be working in partnership with our existing security capabilities in Application Security and Cyber Security, but you’ll need to be equally comfortable driving physical security or wider risk reduction initiatives. There will also be opportunities for you to influence, and in some cases implement, security strategies across our other diverse business units.

This means you will ...

  • Engage with our leaders and create a cohesive security strategy across all areas of the business
  • Clearly articulate current and desired state, and resources required to reach and maintain to standards appropriate for our business risks
  • Create clear alignment with and across our existing security functions of Engineering Security, and our outsourced Cyber Security capability
  • Ensure our security policies are fit-for-purpose, drive compliance in all areas, and active manage these policies as the business evolves
  • Be a visible ambassador for security standards, delivering regular business-wide communication to embed a more security-conscious culture
  • Define clear processes for incident detection, response and communication, including driving root cause analysis and post-incident improvements
  • Monitor security compliance, creating suitable metrics and benchmarks to clearly track status and progress
  • Ensure corporate assets and devices are suitably tracked and protected from theft, loss or damage
  • Ensure our offices have appropriate levels of protection and response, regularly reviewing processes, security staff and physical deterrents to ensure maximum protection
  • Create and deliver clear processes for ensuring our suppliers are assessed for security vulnerabilities, and they adhere to our corporate security standards
  • Ensure our employees are personally safe and protected in all their business activities, travel and events
  • Collaborate across our wider TechCo group on improving security standards and reducing risk, influencing strategic and operational decision making
  • Identifying and presenting business cases for innovative, problem solving, solutions to reducing overall risk

What you'll bring

Experience building and delivering a security strategy and function and broad knowledge and experience across multiple security areas and concepts. Another important point is communication skills and ability to communicate what is required at all levels of the business. A self-starter mindset and thirst for learning and a willingness to challenge how things are done.

What's in it for you

  • Inspiring and fulfilling work at an innovative and values-driven company creating cutting-edge tech
  • Attractive salary and customisable benefits package
  • Flexible working hours and ways of working
  • Contemporary and accessible office environments with a range of workplace perks
  • Six weeks’ paid leave for every four years of service
  • Relocation package for you and your family including soft-landing package services to help you settle in (applicable in Spain, if you are moving from a different city/country)
  • Being part of a team with a forward-looking, international mindset and agile working practices
  • A friendly, inclusive and multicultural environment (we are made up of over 35 nationalities, speaking almost 30 languages)
  • Wellbeing programmes, learning and personal growth opportunities
  • A range of employee events throughout the year, including team building activities, Learning Labs, Hackathons and Designathons
  • Opportunities to shape the tech community within and outside of the company, through mentoring and knowledge-sharing
