Job Description

About Centralway

Centralway’s focus is on developing products to manage banking transactions and assets. The platform provides banking services for the consumer, as well as the development and implementation of banking software towards financial institutions. We are currently looking for a Security Engineer, at the earliest possible start date, to strengthen our position in the industry.

This role is based at Centralway Headquarters, Zürich.


You will work with other engineers to ensure that new features are designed, implemented and operated to the highest possible security standard. You will review designs, code, perform in-depth assessments and closely work with the engineers to resolve issues at a very detailed level.

Further responsibilities include the engineering, implementation and monitoring of security tooling for automated monitoring, code review, security tests, scanning and much more - all to ensure the day-to-day operational security tasks are as automated as possible, enabling a deeper product security focus.

You should be as comfortable reviewing code across multiple platforms as you are handling a security incident. Your passion for the field should see you keeping yourself up-to-date about the latest vulnerabilities, exploits and trends, as well as the latest countermeasures.


  • University degree in Computer Science or Engineering, or equivalent experience
  • A minimum 8 years of work experience
  • Proficient in at least one of the top languages, particularly Go, Java or Python and be willing to learn more.
  • You have experience with performing application code reviews, design reviews and penetration testing.
  • Strong communication skills in verbal and written English and German (optional)
  • Experience working with distributed systems
  • Experience in penetration testing web-based apps, mobile apps and back-end infrastructure
  • Experience implementing modern-day cryptosystems
  • Problem solving skills and ability to work under pressure
