  • Conduct periodic assessments and technical audits challenging the security posture.
  • Provide security guidance and training to staff members to raise awareness and promote a security-conscious culture.
  • Partner and collaborate with a diverse set of teams including science (drug discovery), research (machine learning), product, business development, and operations.

Skills and qualifications

  • Ability to write and maintain Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), technical documentation, and provide training.
  • Experience in managing direct security operations and collaborating with teams across different technical backgrounds.
  • Familiarity with the secure development and operation of ML-based systems.
Nice to have

Culture and values

What does it take to be successful at IsoLabs? It's not about finding people who think and act in the same way, but we do have some shared values:

ThoughtfulThoughtful at Iso is about curiosity, creativity and care. It is about good people doing good, rigorous and future-making science every single day.

BraveBrave at Iso is about fearlessness, but it's also about initiative and integrity. The scale of the challenge demands nothing less.

DeterminedDetermined at Iso is the way we pursue our goal. It's a confidence in our hypothesis, as well as the urgency and agility needed to deliver on it. Because disease won't wait, so neither should we.

TogetherTogether at Iso is about connection, collaboration across fields and catalytic relationships. It's knowing that transformation is a group project, and remembering that what we're doing will have a real impact on real people everywhere.
Creating an inclusive company

We realise that to be successful we need our teams to reflect and represent the populations we are striving to serve. We're working to build a supportive and inclusive environment where collaboration is encouraged and learning is shared. We value diversity of experience, knowledge, backgrounds and perspectives and harness these qualities to create extraordinary impact.

We are committed to equal employment opportunities regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy or related condition (including breastfeeding) or any other basis protected by applicable law. If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Hybrid working

It's hugely important for us to be able to share knowledge and establish relationships with each other, and we find it easier to do this if we spend time together in person. This is why we've decided to follow a hybrid model, and for full time positions we would require you to be able to come into the office 3 days a week (currently Tue, Wed, and one other day depending on which team you're in). For part time positions this may vary. As an equal opportunities employer we are committed to building an equal and inclusive team. If you have additional needs that would prevent you from following this hybrid approach, we'd be happy to talk through these if you're selected for an initial screening call.
