About the Team

Cyber Defense's mission is to monitor, detect and disrupt cyber security threats targeting Swiss Re. We protect our employees and customers while constantly aiming to deliver exceptional security services. We are a new team that is growing quickly to lead, own, and inspire cyber security change across Swiss Re while continuously maturing our operations and practices to align with the best in the industry.

About the Role

Would you take pride in developing the platform that defends one of the largest reinsurance companies of the world from cyberattacks? Is it attractive for you to work with modern technologies? Do you want to learn from a team of international experts?

If you are still reading, we want to talk to you!

We are looking for a junior software engineer who can work on the ongoing development of our Cyber Defense's technical operating platform, which includes working with cloud technologies as well as the development of various software components. You do not need to be able to work with all the technologies we use - we will start with what you know, and you will learn the rest.

Some of the work requires developing in Python and working with container technologies. As Swiss Re has a growing footprint in public cloud platforms - primarily in Microsoft Azure - there is a growing need and opportunity to work with emerging cloud technologies as well.

In Cyber Defense we work according to agile methods. The senior members of our team will coach you to help you learn, grow and to push your professional boundaries. You will be joining a growing team where you will have ample opportunity to learn and grow in your professional career.

Information about the selection process

The minimum gross monthly base salary for this role is 1500 EUR full time. Our final offer to you will be set up fairly, considering the skills and experience that you bring to the Swiss Re Group. You can look forward to extra rewards and benefits including an attractive performance-based bonus.

This job offer is suitable for people who have been impacted by the invasion of Ukraine.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. Our aim is to live visible and invisible diversity - diversity of age, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, physical abilities, personalities and experiences - at all levels and in all functions and regions. We also collaborate in a flexible working environment, providing you with a compelling degree of autonomy to decide how, when and where to carry out your tasks.

We provide feedback to all candidates via email. If you have not heard back from us, please check your spam folder.
