Are you passionate about Software Engineering?

Exellys is specialised in attracting and integrating strong IT talent for large and medium-sized companies and major Tech start-ups in Belgium. We bridge the gap between the academic and business world by creating the ‘ideal incubator' for young IT professionals.

Did you know there are over 2000 communications satellites circulating the orbit of our Earth? 

Maybe you do. 

But did you know that the market leader in the development of satellite communication devices worldwide, actually is a Belgian company located in Sint-Niklaas? 

We’re talking about Newtec here. A pioneer in the industry. They have more than 30 years of experience in creating new possibilities, products and technologies for broadcast, consumer and enterprise satellites, as well as systems for governments, airlines, maritime companies and the military, all over the world. 

You can be sure it’s a high-end R&D environment, over there in Sint-Niklaas. But the reward of the very interesting and challenging job content is huge. 

They’re currently hiring a Security Officer. Do you think you have what it takes?

About the Challenge

As a senior information security consultant at Newtec, a variety of projects awaits you. Security consulting in your domain of expertise. Security awareness sessions. And you will be organizing trainings and security audits with their clients as well. All of your projects will be long term.  You don’t become a market leader without strong relationships with your clients now, do you? 

You will be working together with 150 team members in the Newtec Global Customer Services and Supply Chain team, working with external stakeholders like business analysts, regional customer service managers, suppliers and business partners. After your training, your tasks will, among others, consist of: 

  • Steering and overseeing security aspects in infrastructure, communications, data, people, supply chain, firmware and software and service delivery
  • Assuming day-to-day leadership and communications in a virtual team
  • Managing security partners
  • Ensuring full integration in Newtec processes and activities
  • Handling crisis communications and complaints

What we need from you

  • You’re carrying a bachelor or master’s degree, preferably in IT or technology
  • You know your way around information security and bring at least 3 years of relevant experience to the table
  • You’ll become a representative for the market leader in satellite communications. Newtec needs you to be a good communicator and coordinator, to have good project management, presentation, negotiation and consensus making skills
  • Results are everything for you, and you deliver within preset deadlines in a client-oriented environment
  • You are fascinated by the technology behind satellite communications. If you have some relevant professional certification (like CISSP, CISM, CISA, ISO…), be sure to bring them with you
  • We’d also love to hear about it if you have some experience in information security governance, risk management, key information security processes and security architecture and design
  • And of course, due to the international scale, you are fluent in Dutch, French and English

  • You get a personal career coach & get to pick technical trainings and certificates to match your needs and ambitions. 
  • After 2 years, you’ll get the opportunity to work for Swift as a permanent employee (they pay you).
