Senior Security Specialist


Team members in the office





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 10 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.

What you’ll be working on

You will be working as part of the Security team in our Security Program subteam. This team is focused on the GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) area of security. In this team you can make sure that trust of 10 million Wise customers is being kept by passing yearly ISO27001, SOC1, SOC2 audits and PCI DSS for a company processing £5 billion in transactions every month. You are expected to help the external auditors with internal evidence gathering and making sure that any gaps are being addressed. You can work with regulations across the whole world and incorporate new requirements into our global policies. 

As we expand, the Security Program team is helping business and banking teams with new regulators to prove that Wise is secure. You can influence the awareness of 2700+ employees with e-learns and classroom training. Together with Security Ops, Privacy, Compliance and Legal teams you will find new ways to keep our customers and Wise safe and compliant in all regions across the world.
