Lead Security Engineer

32 - 40 hours · Amsterdam · €60-85k annually 


Hello, we are Quin's product tech team of over 100 engineers. A tech community of Kotlin/Spring Boot enthusiasts, React natives, Cloud huggers and the QA pros.  

A community with a clear purpose: to develop scalable code that propels healthcare into the 22nd century.  

Not for ‘the lucky few,’ but for everyone, everywhere. If that’s a purpose you can get behind, now is the time to team up because we are building next-gen, AI-driven doctor and patient-facing apps that effortlessly guides patients to the right medical assistance. We’re also reverse-engineering our Android and iOS apps as a web service.   

Together with medical professionals (aches and pains? At Quin, there’s always a doctor in the room!) and data scientists. If a fluid environment where the (patient) stakes are high, autonomy is a given, and learning from hugely talented peers appeals to you, welcome to our development lab!  


As our Security Engineer 

You assume responsibility for all ‘Security-by-design’ endeavours. Given our transition from a scale-up to a product-led organisation, this calls for DevSecOps journey and you will lead the construction of Quin’s “safety culture”, so you need to leverage all of your experience and skills to maximise your impact.  

What does it take to run a secure SaaS platform? In scope. A proper Information Security Management System? All yours, too. As is passionately promoting your vision to a diverse group of stakeholders. But rest assured, we have your back, and you can always tap into the insights of your peers: people who’ve been around will gladly help you out.  

Your skill and dedication greatly contribute to Quin’s future growth, and the pay-off comes with a serving of ‘moral satisfaction’ to boot. That’s because we are a purpose-driven organisation, and every [something you do] ultimately makes health care more straightforward, personal, and future-proof.  

A purpose worth investing in! Of note: at Quin, pioneering is the name of the game. Nothing is set in stone yet, so conceptual prowess and a forward-thinking mindset are welcome.  

Concrete topics you’ll zoom in on:  

  • Can you get us to the next compliance level with defining security standards and policies as ISO 27001, NEN 7510?  
  • Is the TLS configuration of the load balancers following the best practices? 
  • Should we first focus on implementing SSO for the internal monitoring system? 
  • Should we hurry up with upgrading our internal library dependencies or is it okay to wait for the next release? 
  • Would you have time to verify whether that pentest finding of last week was indeed resolved? I hope you haven't uninstalled Burp Suite already...  

Someone has to make that decision. And that's you! 


How do you make us better? 

If you are a Security Engineer with: 

  • Working 5-8 years in information and application security, or a similar role 
  • In-depth understanding of application security vulnerabilities and standards 
  • Agile, DevSecOps, CI/CD, and AWS Cloud Security 
  • Experience with Java development ecosystem is plus 

Finally, you have strong organising and prioritising skills, you are comfortable in sharing, and you are not overwhelmed when colleagues challenge the status quo. Last, but not least, you have strong verbal and written communication skills. 

...then this job is right for you! 


What will you get from us? 

We hope the opportunity to future-proof healthcare with us gets your adrenaline pumping. That’s what makes your colleagues tick. Speaking of which, you’ll work with talented, international teammates who are always happy to bounce ideas off each other, so learning from peers is a given. We accelerate the learning curve through our (buzz incoming) career development program, which helps you plot the optimal Quin course and empowers you to reach personal goals quicker. As for the nitty-gritty: we ‘inject’ your checking account with a gross salary up to 85K per year depending on seniority.  

We support flexibility and work life balance, and offer a hybrid work environment. 60/40 is what we aim for. But given our prime location (the former Netflix building), you may find yourself gravitating towards HQ more often. If only to challenge a colleague in our gaming room, grab a meal in our cafeteria, participate in bootcamps, join our regular learning sessions and lunch lectures. Last but not least, relocation assistance from start to finish.
