Your mission (if you choose to accept it) : be our security wizard!

Now is the time to join a great team and put your talent to work! Come be a part of a growing security team with a real challenge: ensuring that our systems and services are 100% safe for our employees all over the world. In other words, making sure that neither our internal nor Cloud environments can be disturbed by external dangers.

We want to welcome an intern who will help us standardize our practices, support the development, documentation, training and user guidance to ensure consistent and effective implementation of policies and procedures;

Are you looking for an internship where you can have a positive and meaningful impact in a highly collaborative environment? If you’re interested in security, this is a challenge tailored for you!

So what’s a typical day like ?

  • You start your day by participating in your daily SCRUM meeting. You receive full visibility on who’s working on which project and you’ll have the opportunity to  quickly identify your tasks of the week. You are always seen as part of the team even if you are an intern!
  • Afterwards, you hop on a call with the team and help by working on  Infrastructure for our employees.
  • It's lunch time already! You take a well-deserved rest and why not, attend one of the lunch and learn specially designed for trainees. It’s the perfect opportunity to network with your peers.
  • When you come back from lunch,  you start working on your personal project alongside your coach by using Terraform and Python.
  • Then your internship coach sets aside some time for you this afternoon to make sure everything runs smoothly when you start out. You discuss the team dynamics, the technical challenges that await you and the initiatives you could take to find the solution to your current challenges.
  • You end your day by documenting the steps you completed today. We want you to help us standardize our testing practices so this step is super important!
