Welcome to the future of customer growth. Join us as we shape the future of rewards in financial services!


Join us as a Senior Security Engineer!

We are looking for a passionate Security Engineer who is keen to learn, grow and bring his/her experience in a fast-paced environment. We promote and do security through (we think) fun and cool stuff.


At Ascenda, our Security Engineers work closely with other engineers like the developers and devops teams, with the common goal of continually improving the security posture of our applications. On some days, we would be conducting pentests on our applications, other days we would be writing, implementing, and working on security engineering projects to suit our security needs.


We have achieved compliance with the most stringent security standards (PCI-DSS, SOC2, ISO27001). Our partners are financial institutions and airlines, and they expect a very high level of availability, reliability and security.


Key responsibilities

We’re looking for a senior profile with a genuine passion for technical security with several years of professional experience and has dabbled in multiple disciplines of security.


As a senior member of the Security team, you would be expected to:

  • Scope out and conduct penetration testing on our various applications, and work together with developers to propose and implement a fix for the findings.

  • Propose and implement projects (SAST/DAST, phishing exercises for example) that ultimately improve the security of our applications and the company as a whole. Suggestions are more than welcome!

  • Occasionally provide technical and non-technical security advice to employees. This could range from questions related to “Is this a phishing email?” to “If we design our application in this way, what are the security concerns?”.

  • Research, analyse, and evaluate the risks of introducing new technologies and tools to our current architecture from a security perspective.

  • Conceptualise and comprehend various security requirements, applying them to the company's context, and identifying any gaps. Propose and implement solutions to address these gaps.

  • Investigate the occasional security alerts and take the necessary actions.

  • Constantly be up to date with security trends, news and understanding of their relevance to our security posture.

  • Work together with the security team on creating security awareness training materials, targeted at both technical developers as well as non-technical people.

  • Be overall an independent and committed person with a strong tenacity to look into issues deeply

  • Demonstrate a robust commitment to self-improvement and actively contributes to the team's collective growth by continuously enhancing individual skills and fostering a collaborative environment.

Job requirements

We expect you to have:

  • Experience in scoping and conducting penetration testing on web applications.

  • Experience in conducting source code reviews across various applications running on microservices architecture.

  • Knowledge of web application and API security vulnerabilities and how they can be exploited.

  • Knowledge in scripting (Bash, Python, Javascript, etc).

  • Knowledge in Linux, AWS, Kubernetes, Terraform, and the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).

  • Independence and good communication skills, able to interact and work effectively with both technical and non-technical people.

  • Familiarity with the concepts of Industrial Security Certifications such as PCI-DSS, SOC2, ISO27001.

  • Technical Security Certifications such as CREST, OSCP, OSWE (or any of the other Offensive Security Certifications).


It will be a bonus if you have:

  • Knowledge and experience in conducting other red team activities such as phishing exercises (e.g. CRTO certified)

  • Deep knowledge of Cloud and Container vulnerabilities and exploiting them.

  • Deep knowledge in exploiting web applications running on ruby frameworks.

  • Bug Bounty findings and CVEs to your name

  • Experience with playing CTFs (Share your writeups!)
