We’re looking for an IT / Information Security Specialist to join our team.
Ideal candidates have broad experience in IT operations (including distributed staff management, onboarding/off boarding and help desk) and in Information Security (SSO, best practices around storing data at rest, how to protect PII, and how to manage an outside security audit/pen test). Day-to-day IT admin work and help-desk will constitute about 40% of your workload; the rest of your time will be spent on helping our team improve operational efficiency and review and implement improved security practices.
We’re a team of around 50 people spread over 12+ countries in time zones from UTC-8 to UTC+2. Our staff is quite technical and do not need much IT support. We use a lot of Google Apps, Slack and AWS.

You are self-motivated, proactive and able to drive results without close supervision.
You have strong written and oral communication skills in English.
You’re comfortable to work with a distributed, international team across multiple time zones.
You are results oriented and work with a pragmatic, hands-on approach.
You’re a team player and you’re open-minded.
You have a broad experience in IT operations and in Information Security (SSO, best practices around storing data at rest, how to protect PII, how to manage an outside security audit/pen test, and familiar with cloud focused tools).
How we work
Laterpay has around 50 people spread over 15+ countries in time zones from UTC-8 to UTC+2. We’re a distributed team, though we have offices in Munich (DE) and New York (US).
We care more about the things you do than whether you’re in a chair at a desk at 9am every day. That said, most of us work Monday – Friday from 7ish UTC to 4ish UTC, and ideally your schedule will overlap at least 4 hours (in the European afternoon). We try to be as asynchronous as possible, but still feel that we need some “synchronicity” to work well.
Our values are:
Be fearless. Be entrepreneurial.
Own your decisions. Your successes. Your mistakes.
Enjoy diversity and inclusion.
Work as a team. Trust each other.
We’re proud to have employees from many different nationalities, races, genders, ages, backgrounds, educations, and levels of experience. Assembling a diverse team isn’t just the right thing to do, it ensures we build a product that works for and appeals to an audience that faithfully reflects our communities and our shared planet.
