The work as a security architecture consultant is characterized by trust and we always strive for long-term client relationships and to be THE trusted information security advisor. Our vision is to provide the most qualified advisory professionals to our clients, adapted to suit their specific preconditions so that we can assist the client in improving their security posture and mitigate any risks.

Key Responsibilities

What are we looking for?

We are looking for individuals that exhibit ambition, a strong work ethic, and a willingness to learn. Being a consultant at WithSecure means maintaining an indefinite, steep learning curve. You will be supported throughout your career here, but also expected to use that support to grow continuously as a leader and trusted advisor.

We appreciate and expect professional pride and integrity. Being able to develop and maintain good and long-term working relations with clients and colleagues alike will be crucial to your success.

The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years of security experience with a range of security certifications.
