Software security matters. This is true for the entire industry, but especially for us. We live it. We breathe it. We embody it. We pave the road for data security and privacy.

At Fortanix we define new ways to protect software and the data it contains. Our products protect your financial data, your health information or even the subscribers to your food blog. These complex systems present us with demanding challenges.

With key strategic partners like Microsoft, Intel, ServiceNow, and Snowflake, Fortanix customers like PayPal, Google & Adidas are reaping the benefits. Recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor”, Fortanix is revolutionizing cyber security.

Join the revolution!

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our platform team. This team is responsible for the design, development and deployment of our platform services, which are the foundation of our products. Our goal is to provide a unified experience for our customers with one global platform.

Your job will be to contribute towards this goal by contributing to the overall design of the eco-system, designing and deploying micro-services in a hybrid cloud environment. You have a vision on what a perfect system looks like and know how to build that from the ground up.

Our company

We are a young company with great ambitions. We collaborate with partners and customers to develop the best solutions in security. We respect and nourish the craftsmanship of the people that build that foundation. Everyone is held to the same standards, from intern to CEO.

Our key tenets revolve around Excellence, Replication and Ownership.

  • Excellence – Nobody is perfect, but we strive to always do our best and continuously learn.
  • Replication – We need more than individual excellence. We share our experience and learn from each other.
  • Ownership – Own your work; the good, the bad, the ugly. Learn from failure, propagate success.
  • You will architect and implement micro-services.
  • You contribute to the roadmap on technical requirements.
  • You will help identify and design new platform requirements.
  • You will work with the Rust programming language.
  • You currently reside in the EU and have a valid EU work permit

As a senior platform engineer you will work with other internal teams to improve the foundations of our SaaS and on-premise products. Your team provides contract-based guarantees on platform services, features, and their dependencies. It is your responsibility to define those guarantees and their constraints.

You will work with a diverse team of peers that stand by our tenets. Your contributions and insights will be valued. You will have the freedom to arrange your working hours to your and your team’s needs. We believe it’s between you and your work. We understand that our work can be done mostly remote and allow you to do so for most of your time. As such we only ask you to join our office on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven only three days a week.

We will also offer you a competitive salary with 25 holidays, a floating holiday of choice, and travel expense remuneration. Expats can expect limited relocation support. You’ll also have the opportunity for continuous learning and development of your skills.
