That’s why we are rapidly growing and building talented and passionate teams in our offices in Argentina, Brazil, Ireland, and the US.

About the team

The information security team at Wildlife is responsible for securing our player information, protecting our online games against attacks and reducing overall risk exposure. We solve this problem by implementing industry best practices, automation and strong relationships with developers, infrastructure engineers and the IT team. 

A senior enterprise security engineer working in our team implements tools and processes to secure our workstations, hardware, services and office networks.

We follow vendor and industry best practices to configure the security features of third-party services such as GMail, Zoom and BambooHR.

You'll need to understand our device fleet and tools, identify potential weaknesses, propose, craft and implement solutions that will lower the overall risk. Since we are always looking for new tools and technologies that better solve our problems, we value professionals that like to learn new things, are autonomous and proactive to bring and implement their ideas.

This role will collaborate with the information security area and work closely with the corporate IT department to achieve our company goals.
