Infrastructure and IT Security Lead (all genders)

diconium auto GmbH • #DriveYourLife



We are an automotive security team made up of highly experienced software engineers, pentesters and technical project managers and we are looking for someone to make sure that what we build stays up, is built secure and remains secure.

Are you highly experienced in setting up and maintaining high-availability and/or security-critical IT infrastructure and looking for a role that will offer you enormous scope to do things right (i.e. your way)? 

If so, we are looking for you to design, build, maintain and ensure the availability, security and compliance of our diverse infrastructure. Our ecosystem will ultimately include a diverse range of devices, ranging from raspberry pis, prototype vehicle ECU's, on-prem security analysis servers, HSM server infrastructure, cloud infrastructure including VPN's between the fixed-line and mobile data networks, internet-facing portals and mobile applications.

Your duties


  • Designing, building, maintaining and securing the cyber-security unit's IT infrastructure
  • Responsibility for the overall IT infrastructure security posture
  • Working with software engineers to design and build server infrastructure for our products and services - e.g. internet-facing web portal hosts
  • Designing and documenting measures for the availability, backup, recovery and security of the services and infrastructure
  • Providing technical guidance and mentoring to improve the IT and security skills of junior colleagues
  • Liaising closely with the group IT department to ensure any deviations by the cyber-security unit from group IT policies are addressed appropriately - e.g. by defining a suitable technical solution

Your profile


Must have:

  • Previous experience in building IT infrastructure

  • Extensive technical knowledge of security technologies such as VPN's, PKI, MFA, etc.

  • A solid grasp of the cryptographic concepts that underpin those security technologies e.g. authentication vs. encryption, symmetric vs. asymmetric, etc.

  • A genuine personal interest in security and securing systems
  • The ability to have a laugh

  • Fluent English (German advantageous)


Nice to have:

  • Experience in implementing a zero-trust based approach - especially in a BYOD environment

  • Any relevant certifications in the area of information security or infrastructure protection
