Cyber Security Lead (Sydney NSW, Australia) 2 days ago

Freelancer Limited, the company behind - the world's largest crowd-sourcing marketplace, and - the world’s largest online Escrow provider, is looking for our next Cyber Security Lead.

Your Mission

To protect millions of users from those that wish them harm.

Every day, our websites, users, and employees are under threat of online attacks. The security team plays a critical role in detecting and preventing such attacks. As our Head of Security you will leverage your experience and technical security expertise to prioritize, develop, and deploy solutions to internal and external information security challenges


  • Security is your passion. You are constantly keeping up to date with new technologies, best practices, security risks, and threat actors.
  • You have experience managing both security teams and the organisational security programmes that they support, but are capable of getting your hands dirty when needed.
  • Your primary background is in application and infrastructure security with experience in threat modelling, security design reviews, and security architecture.
  • You have worked with large public facing websites running on one of the “big 3” cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure).
  • You are a big fan of open source software, continuous learning, and sharing information.
  • You are a strong communicator and are able to work with infrastructure, engineering and product teams.


This won’t be a cog-in-the-machine type of job; you will be joining a rapidly growing global technology company that values attitude and capability over experience, so if you are looking to make a difference and be rewarded for your efforts, this is the place for you.

We are striving to build one of the biggest sites on the Internet, so help us scale for 100+ million users, while enjoying all the perks of working in tech - fun atmosphere, smart people, awesome office, fully-stocked kitchens, social events, hackathons, your choice of platform, and more!
