As one of our Cryptosecurity Engineers, you will be involved with a variety of levels of maturity of systems, ranging from research into future concepts for cryptography, through requirements and architecture for future systems, through design of systems that use cryptography, to modifying in-service systems.

As well as the opportunity to hone your skills & develop your knowledge of the underpinning technology, we have a strong commitment to personal development. So as well as learning from colleagues you’ll be able to enhance our capabilities through service specialisation and funded research projects. The scope for career development is limited only by your personal dedication and drive.


We are keen to hear from individuals looking to specialise in crypto technology. You will be qualified to at least University Honours Degree or equivalent (minimum upper second class). You will have postgraduate experience, either in academia (i.e. MSc, PhD) or industry, in a related field (information security, cryptography, computer/network security).

All our team members are highly innovative, able to develop/analyse solutions, interpret customer requirements and understand/shape both the “big picture” and technical details. We have an adaptable and flexible approach to work, and have a willingness to support each other and the wider team.
