Nov 01, 2023 - Secfix is hiring a remote Engineering Manager. 📍Location: Europe.
Secfix automates security compliance for SMBs in Europe. We help companies get and stay compliant with standards such as ISO 27001, GDPR, TISAX, and SOC 2 in weeks rather than months.
Our platform integrates with a company’s tech stack (such as GCP, AWS, Azure, Google Workspaces, Jira, Gitlab, etc.), automatically extracts the data needed for compliance, and creates a checklist for them to become and remain certified. Our fastest customer finished their certification in 4 weeks instead of 12+ months, typically seen from older institutions.
We raised pre-seed funding from top German angel investors and recently closed our seed round from leading UK and German VCs after impressive growth. Now, the goal (with your help) is to become the market leader.

As an Engineering Manager at Secfix, you will lead and inspire a team of highly skilled engineers, nurturing a culture of innovation, collaboration, and continuous improvement.

We are very proud of our Secfix values - and look for candidates who share them. They are:
We are obsessed with our customers. We start with the customer and work our way backward to create amazing products they love.
We build everything in a smart way. We love working by YCombinator's principles and preach those to our team.
We create trust within our organisation. Transparency and ethics are within our DNA.
We are hacky. A functional prototype delivered within 2 weeks is worth more than a perfect solution delivered in 2 months.
We take ownership. Building a startup is about ownership and being accountable for timely delivery.
We are leaders of remote work. We are passionately building a culture where people can be productive working from anywhere.
Please note: We are an equal-opportunity employer and remote-only company. At this time, we can support hiring only within EU time zones. We work in sync using Gather as our virtual office. As a small fast-growing company, we believe in the need for an in-sync component of daily communication and therefore cannot support any 100% asynchronous work.
