We are looking for a Lean Software Developer who will work on new software tooling to automatically test the security of embedded software and IoT applications. This opening is for our European office in Delft, The Netherlands.


Do you like building the world’s most advanced security test tools?


Riscure is a successful organisation that specialises in developing security test tools and testing the security of smart cards, Pay-Tv systems, embedded software and mobile payment applications, among other things. Riscure is growing fast and one of our security testing products is on its way to becoming the international benchmark. Most of our 100 enthusiastic colleagues have a technical and academic background. Riscure consists of four units: Security tools and software, Security Lab, Developer Solutions and Training Academy. Next to our headquarters in Delft, we have offices in San Francisco, USA and Shanghai, China.


We are looking for a Lean Software Developer who will work on new software tooling to automatically test the security of embedded software and IoT applications. Next to this you will be improving our current market-leading tools. All our tools enable security experts to find vulnerabilities in secured products by using a variety of hardware and software test techniques, combined with data analysis and visual representation of test results. Performance, complex analysis of large data sets, and reliable software-hardware interaction are key to the success of our tools.


As a Lean Software Developer you are part of the development team, with the objective to develop new products, as well as improve the existing ones, using the Lean development practice. The team collaborates with the analysts from our own Security Lab and external customers to learn which solutions are most valuable. The close collaboration with users results in products that fulfil a customer need and have short time-to-market.


The development team works in an agile way. With your experience of agile development, you know how to structure the work, collaborate with your colleagues and ask for help when needed. You have an open mind; can find creative solutions that will make our tooling loved by our customers. You like technical challenges. You use your programming skills to build robust and easily extensible software that will give our customers an outstanding user experience.


Your job

  • You will work in short cycles on experiments, in which ideas are transformed into prototypes, according to Lean development principles. We use these experiments to check if our solution is beneficial for our customers.
  • You work in a small team of developers, creating new solutions for customers, and supporting them with fixes for current releases.
  • You implement code. Additionally, you perform supporting tasks, such as writing documentation and testing.
  • The majority of our software is written in Java. We are working with tools such as JIRA, Bamboo, Bitbucket, IntelliJ, Eclipse, Maven and Git to support our software development process. Your work includes configuration, maintenance, and improvement of these tools and processes. You may also need to develop or maintain parts of scripting-based tools written in e.g. Python or C.

Your qualifications

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree, preferably in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics or Mathematics.
  • You have experience with Lean development or similar Agile software development practices, software development tools and unassisted software development and implementation.
  • You love advanced technology, and have a drive to understand and improve products. You enjoy hunting for bugs, and you can fix issues efficiently. Customer satisfaction is a key motivator in your daily work.
  • You have affinity with the field of software security. You are familiar with cryptography and attack techniques. You feel comfortable with the hacking mentality that is used in security evaluation projects and the strong demand for flexibility in the software tools.


  • You collaborate with software developers, hardware developers, security analysts and end-users.
  • You receive directions from a product manager and a software development manager.
