You will work at a future-oriented bank where the customer is always put first. We are working hard to implement innovations. Sustainability, accessibility, safety and transparency are important goals. You will work at Platforms & Technology (P&T) within the Service Integration & Orchestration grid (SI&O). Your colleagues in the Crypto Services team ensure that important information can be protected properly through the use of cryptography. The team is diverse in both nationalities and professional background, which makes it a great place to work and develop yourself.

Your job

You can imagine that information security is a major asset within the bank. You will play an important role in this by making cryptographic capabilities accessible to the entire bank. The Crypto Services team ensures that important data within the bank can be secured correctly.

The team provides various cryptography-related services to the entire holding. You can think of key and certificate management, in which security keys and certificates are created, stored and renewed in a safe manner when necessary. Several certification authorities are used throughout the organization, which are governed by the Crypto Services team. You will help various departments within the bank with the management of their digital certificates.

In addition, the team works with Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to allow for e.g. encryption and decryption of information using cryptographic algorithms. HSMs are specifically designed to, when used properly, guarantee the highest level of security for the bank. It is your job to make the use of these HSMs as simple and safe as possible for the internal consumers. We call this HSM as a service.

In summary, this is a challenging role for someone who likes to explain complex processes such as encryption in a simple way and make it accessible within the bank. The team currently consists of 11 members with different nationalities and is ready for further expansion. The working language within the team is English.
