CyberOwl helps maritime and CNI asset operators gain visibility, cybersecurity and compliance of systems on their distributed, remote assets. Our technologies provide near-real-time visibility of the onboard IT and OT assets and their communication patterns, raises early warning of cyber-attacks, suspicious behaviours and monitors for non-compliance. We complement this with a managed service and specific cybersecurity advisory services to further support the asset operator.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation, gender, marriage/civil partnerships, pregnancy, maternity or age.

The Team

Our team is 40+ people strong and always growing. We’re expecting another significant growth phase imminently. We’re recognised as market innovators - we have a bias for action and our team pride themselves on their ability to plan, execute and iterate at a rapid pace. We value the ability to challenge each other, hold each other to account, develop each other personally and professionally and celebrate each other’s successes.

We are quite a diverse team – 13 nationalities, 15 languages, many more dialects – and lots of owls. We are spread across 2 continents and 6 countries.

The Opportunity

CyberOwl is looking for an experienced full stack developer to join our growing software engineering team.

This is an opportunity to join a small but rapidly growing company where your contribution has a significant impact on the success of the company.  You will be working with some cutting-edge technologies and actively encouraged to bring new fresh ideas to the table.

We are a fully remote team and so you must be experienced at working from home efficiently and effectively.  

You will be joining an established but expanding agile development team and will have the opportunity to work with some exceptionally talented and committed people.  Later this year we will be expanding the team to Southeast Asia and although this is a predominantly a UK based role there may be the opportunity to spend some time working from our offices in Singapore.

We have some very exciting ideas on our roadmap that have the potential to be game-changing for our customers.

This is an opportunity for an experienced Software Engineer to cross train to Golang.  You should be able to demonstrate that you have a solid understanding of software development that has been gained as part of a time that was writing production ready code.  

Although we do not require you to have had previous experience in the maritime industry, we are looking for someone who will whole-heartedly embrace the challenge of getting to grips with a new sector.  This will be made easier as you will be working with some exceptionally committed and focused domain experts covering product development, sales and marketing through to software engineering and delivery all of whom will aid you in developing your understanding of our market and our customer’s needs.
