Senior Manager - Security Innovation and Technology Strategy

Why is this role the next step for you?

This role sits within our Enterprise Security function and is key to driving the future of Worldpay’s security products, services and innovation strategy. You will take a forward view on the security and payments landscapes, identifying suitable innovation technologies in security for both internal colleagues and external customers, and drive the implementation of key initiatives. 

Key to the success in this role is your focus on results, outcomes and deliverables.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

You will be looking at what we can do to improve Worldpay’s security and what we can do to improve our customers’ security and differentiate ourselves in the market. You will work closely with the Worldpay Innovation team to ensure we embed security into our future deliverables, products and services. 

We will want you to research and investigate new and innovative security technology and assess its applicability to Worldpay and provide critical analysis, filtering and ruthless prioritisation. You’ll manage relationships within Worldpay with key internal innovation groups, providing advocacy and guidance in their innovation projects and facilitate implementation and adoption within the technology environment. You will also assist with the creation and maintenance of the Enterprise Security technology strategy and objectives.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You’ll demonstrate deep expertise in the security field and significant breadth of technical and strategic knowledge of application, infrastructure and data. You’ll have strong payments or card industry experience, a track record of delivering new ideas and solutions and the ability to present to and work with all levels of the business. We will want you to come from a technical background, have significant experience in strategy creation and maintenance, with the ability to take complex, multi-faceted ideas, objectives or problems and work with them through to simple solutions recognising synergies and options.

We will want you to demonstrate a track record of research and development of innovative technology solutions and their application to real business problems. You’ll have the ability to manage budgets and cost targets, and drive agile proof of concept projects from inception to assessment and closure. Strong interpersonal skills are important, demonstrating a variety of influencing styles to enable effective completion of tasks both individually and within groups.
