Security Engineer Helsinki

Are you a solution-oriented Security Engineer up for securing our cloud infrastructure & application development?

Ready to join one of Europe's fastest growing game companies?

If yes, Metacore could be the right place for you

We are a game company from Helsinki, now also in Berlin, best known for our hit game Merge Mansion and our people-first company culture. Built on trust, our culture allows us to work autonomously, efficiently, and ambitiously. We have mutually agreed on five cultural norms to describe how we build trust and work as Metacore – you can find them here.

Our company’s mission is to entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades. Although we already entertain 50M+ players worldwide and have grown into a team of 200+ game industry professionals in less than three years, we’re only getting started. That’s where we hope you come in: to make us even better at integrating security-minded thinking into every aspect of our game development cycle. Joining our InfoSec team, you will take on the responsibility of securing our cloud infrastructure, application development, and security tooling, while also supporting our game teams with security-related matters. You will play a key role in building our blameless security culture by championing honesty, solution-oriented thinking, collaboration, and a strong sense of responsibility, so we can openly and constructively address security concerns.

  • Experience of conducting threat modeling in cloud native environment and application development
  • Practical know-how of Kubernetes (EKS) or other serverless and container technologies
