Do you want to contribute to a more secure future for payment systems? Do you like building the world’s most advanced security test tools? Then you should join Riscure!


Riscure is a young, ambitious organization specialized in security testing for leading international clients from the semiconductor, payment, set top box, mobile and smart metering industries.

You will work on new and existing software products that validate the security of embedded software and IoT applications. Our market-leading tools enable security experts and developers 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. For our software security testing products, we rely on efficient algorithms, advanced compiler technology and accurate electronic circuit simulation. For our hardware security testing tools, key factors for success are performance, complex analysis of large data sets and reliable software-hardware interaction.

You will create a technical roadmap for this pipeline and spearhead the implementation, gradually enabling the team to contribute. Together developers and product owners, you develop tools that enable analysts and engineers worldwide to make their products more secure. The team collaborates with external customers as well as with the analysts from our own Security Lab to learn which cutting edge technologies are most valuable for Riscure’s product portfolio. The close collaboration with users results in products that fulfil a customer need and have short time-to-market.
