Want to work in a culture built on mutual trust and respect? How about having the freedom to make work fit into your life (and not the other way round)? A career with Thinkproject could be just the opportunity you're looking for.

What do we do?
Thinkproject is a European market-leader in digitalisation tools for construction companies. It sounds complex, but we'll explain further! Construction companies used to use manual administration and physical paperwork for projects (sometimes hundreds of thousands of bits of paperwork for one project!). Using our construction intelligence solutions, businesses can go digital, which benefits everyone from the construction companies to the wider public.
Our mission is to deliver digitalisation to make a safer, healthier and more sustainable AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Operations) industry. This is a really exciting time to join our company, since our founding in 2000 we have gone from strength-to-strength and have lots of exciting developments coming up soon that you could be a part of.

We are looking for a Hands-On Network and Security Team Leader (m/f/d) with experience in network and security operations (both on premise and in Azure / AWS) as well as secure software development. The Network and Security Team Leader (m/f/d) is responsible for meeting both the day-to-day operational needs of the business as well as the planning and delivery of proactive initiatives on time and budget.
Working with teams and individuals across EMEA and APAC regions to deliver secure and performant software solutions to our customers, the Network and Security Team Leader (m/f/d) has responsibility for security covering across areas including secure development of software, security of infrastructure and the security of end user devices and associated systems.

The Network and Security Team Leader (m/f/d) will need to ensure that suitable network services are provisioned to cover the delivery of our products to customers as well as office connectivity and secure interconnections, LAN and WiFi provision.
