Company Description

At ESCRYPT, we believe that security and privacy are important, no matter the size of the device. We are passionate about bringing security and peace of mind to an increasingly connected and data-driven world. We use our breadth and depth of experience and our combined abilities to give our customers the edge they need against ever-evolving threats. The autonomous car is upon us. Cars connect to everything — each other, traffic lights, smartphones, your favorite music streaming service, you name it. Ever wonder how those automotive systems and their data are protected? We do. Our technology is helping keep your data secure and out of the wrong hands. From the smallest micro-controllers to cloud-based infrastructure, we build solutions that let our customers sleep well at night. From the US Department of Transportation to car manufacturers and innovative local startups, our customers do exciting things and we want to help them reach their goals without sacrificing security.

Working closely with the scrum teams as well as the larger product organization you will prioritize development efforts to meet market and customer needs on time.

Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with the V2X Technical Lead to create effective and clear feature and user story descriptions, complete with acceptance criteria.
  • Be an outgoing and effective communicator and presenter, an analyser who is also full of empathy not only for the customers and the challenges they face, but also for the teams that are striving to create great solutions, where you play the role of coach and team mascot.

  • Evaluate competition, interpret market trends, create business plans, and develop product strategies that will bring us success.  Help to produce marketing materials, manuals and all user-facing documentation and electronic interfaces.
  • Be passionate about customer satisfaction, especially in the areas of secure software development practices and product quality.
  • Be the hub to which people in development, sales, marketing and administration turn to set the direction for the product, and the person looked-to to solve short term business problems and create long term business success.  Able to assess aspects of failure and success in the current product offering, from which improvements and new successes can be built even from failure.
