IT Security Architect (f/m/d)

Date: Feb 4, 2023

Location: Düsseldorf, DE

Company: Uniper

 

 

Our Operations & IT team is looking for YOU!

 

Location: Germany / flexible / hybrid 

 

With around 33 gigawatts of installed capacity, Uniper is one of the world's largest power producers. Uniper's core activities include power generation in Europe and global energy trading, as well as a broad gas portfolio that makes Uniper one of the leading gas companies in Europe. 

Our modern society is highly dependent on a properly operating energy infrastructure. Disruptions in the supply of electricity and gas bring public life and our economies to a halt within a very short time. Meanwhile, the smooth operation of energy supply depends on intact information technology. The interconnection of energy generation and energy distribution through IT systems has increased and continues to increase at an ever-increasing rate. However, the growing dependence on these modern technologies is also accompanied by risks to supply security. 

At Uniper, we consistently expand our use of modern IT technologies. We operate world-class leading Cyber-Defense- and Security-Operations-Centers across Europe.  

We are looking for strengthening our European Information Security team.  

Become part of a leading energy and IT company. Take the next step with us to further strengthen Europe's long-term and sustainable energy supply security through the secure use of modern technologies.
