Form3’s vision is to be the world’s most trusted provider of payment technology. We design, build and run the technology that powers the future of payments. The security team provides 24/7 global coverage of this platform to ensure our customer’s businesses and our platform remain safe. This team offers you the chance to not only work on some of the newest tech in the market but also learn and develop your own skill-set across the landscape that is Form3 Security.


At Form3 we are rapidly becoming an integral part of payments across the UK/EU, but we are not stopping there. As part of our continuous commitment to security we are enhancing our Security Operations function that will monitor and defend our expanding cloud-native environment. As the Head of Cloud Security Operations, you will be the main driving force behind the creation and expansion of this capability on both a technical and team front.

This uplift of the Security operations capability will be designed by you in collaboration with an established offensive and defensive engineering team. You will report directly to the CISO.

Across your time here at Form3 you will be continuously leading and growing this operational arm, architecting not only the design of the system but also the team. You will be instrumental in driving the security posture of Form3 into new levels of maturity and ability across the globe.


The Security Operations team will work with the defensive engineering team to integrate appropriate monitoring. The approach within engineering is:

  • Our Senior Engineering team select the best modern technology – multi-cloud, Kubernetes & more - see the form3.tech podcast!
