The major focus of this role is developing our capability within the Product Security function, ensuring that cyber security is thoughtfully implemented at every stage of our product journey; from early research through to the physical products in the hands of our consumers, and for all of the supporting pieces in between such as our cloud infrastructure and mobile apps. Your security solutions will be world class and will protect our most important assets: our customers, and our intellectual property.

The Product and Manufacturing Security teams design the technology solutions that keep our manufacturing operations and connected consumer devices secure, refining our processes, stressing our systems, and making sure we’re well honed. It’s a tireless job, but the bad guys don’t rest.

  • Lead a team of IoT Security experts, setting direction, keeping their skills current, and ensuring they are empowered to deliver leading class security solutions.
  • Become the trusted source of expertise and pro-actively provide security leadership and guidance with regards to IoT security.
  • Work closely with leadership within our Research, Design & Development function to ensure our embedded software and connected home eco-system is protected against the latest threats and that we meet (and often define) best practice and emerging standards in these domains.
  • Collaborate with our global Cyber Security teams and our 3rd Parties to ensure our business operates within security risk appetite, including regular monitoring, reporting and escalation of security events and potential risks.


  • We seek applications from individuals with an exceptional track-record of building and leading global Cyber Security teams, encompassing a range of responsibilities including IoT/connected product security, consultancy, architecture and compliance.
  • With a commercial mindset and demonstrable experience of developing strong partnerships across senior management teams within complex businesses, you'll possess the strength of character and conviction to make the tough decisions when required.
  • Expert knowledge and experience specific to product security (IoT, Mobile Application, Infrastructure, Network, Cloud, Database, Automotive).
  • Strong understanding of IT Security Controls (Identity Management, IPS/IDS, Malware, User Behaviour Analytics, Data Loss Prevention, DDoS, Cloud Security techniques, etc.).
  • Ability to evaluate & articulate risks, develop consensus, raise awareness and provide thoughtfully considered security solutions.
  • Practical knowledge of industry standard frameworks (ISO 2700x, NIST, ITIL, etc.), domain-specific frameworks (NIST 800-82, SAE J3061, ISO/SAE 21434, etc.), best practices (OWASP, CSA, etc.), and regulations (GDPR, China Cybersecurity Law, etc.).
