Building on a sound technical education (HF / FH / Uni or comparable) and at least three years of professional experience with firewall solutions, you feel ready for this exciting task. You have specific know-how with checkpoint solutions as well as detailed network and protocol knowledge. You are a team player and communicate well and easily with customers and employees - both in German and in English.

Our focus is on the customer and not on processes and bureaucracy - that is why we are looking for an independent person who thinks for himself and is committed.
