System Security Engineer at Zego
London, GB

The world deserves better insurance.

At Zego, we’re reinventing an outdated industry and giving people the flexibility they need, allowing them to work on their own terms. Our platform provides super flexible insurance premiums, which offer workers in the gig economy the chance to work the hours they want without the pressure of having to pay for an expensive insurance premium upfront.

In 2018 we were listed as one of the top 3 disruptors to watch on the Sunday Times Fast Track 100. We were also listed in Wired magazine as one of the 5 hottest startups in London.

Recently we closed our series B round, raising $42M from top-tier investors that will fuel our growth into new territories and the expansion of our insurance portfolio.

Our recent success means that we’re currently scaling rapidly and hiring people that can help us supercharge our growth, while still embodying the values that have gotten us so far already.

We are looking for a security minded Systems Engineer to join our team in London, where you will be part of the TechOps squad whose mission is to maintain and secure the systems/infrastructure on which our product operates.

You will act as a systems and operations security authority and work with other systems engineers to ensure our products are secure, reliable, scalable and efficient.


Over the next 12 months you will:

  • Perform on-going security testing and code review to improve software security
  • Collaborate on engineering designs for new software solutions to help mitigate security vulnerabilities
  • Contribute to review/refactor of our Kubernetes cluster security model
  • Be a security advocate in the business
  • Develop and maintain familiarity with new tools and best practices
  • Apply industry standard practices/controls in a cloud environment
  • Prepare and document standard operating procedures and protocols
  • Be part of an on-call rota to respond to security and availability alerts

This is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills in a technology led environment with lots of training and tailored career development plans.


  • Get to know our customers: credit with Uber and Deliveroo
  • Santander cycle keys, DriveNow credit and in-house e-scooters
  • Brand new Zego wardrobe: hoodies, tees, stickers and more
  • Therapy and coaching: make the most of life at Zego
