Junior Physical Security Specialist


We’re looking for a Junior Physical Security Specialist to join our growing IT team in our Tampa office. This role is a unique opportunity to oversee physical security in our Tampa and New York offices, ensuring that our security systems run smoothly and detecting any physical security issues to empower our teams to help millions more potential customers save money by using TransferWise - safely and securely.

You’ll receive a competitive package including a pay rate starting at $17/per hour and stock options in a fast-growing company, in addition to a wide array of other benefits.

Your mission:

  • Actively assess risk evaluations at all times. This will inform the daily development of the Global TransferWise Physical Security System
  • Provide back-end, hands-on maintenance of the security systems and assist the Physical Security Coordinator (PSC) in the coordination of access controls, CCTV, security personnel, and health & safety procedures in our US offices
  • Work hand-in-hand with the PSC to ensure that the needs of the security system are met; brainstorming, problem-solving, and developing plans for new security projects, new offices, and the expansion of existing offices
  • Act as the point-of-contact for our local security contractors, police, and Fire Marshal, and any other third party security contacts
  • Cover for the PSC in his absence and provide emergency backup support for the other TransferWise offices
  • You’ll be the main Physical Security contact in the US, covering Tampa and New York, and you’ll also be there for our Wisers in São Paulo, Brazil

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Make an impact - you’ll be blazing the trail as the first Physical Security Wiser in the US as part of a team split between Estonia and Tampa. You’ll also experience considerable autonomy, ownership, and empowerment in your daily work, and you’ll have the freedom and support to improve processes and take on additional projects as you grow into the role. We get it done!
  • Be yourself - we don’t believe in limiting our Wisers or creating drama, we’re only interested in good Karma. We’re looking for extremely smart team members who work hard, but also have friendly personalities that are fun to work with!
  • Work globally - our customers come first and they’re all over the world; our team members are just as diverse. With offices from Tampa to Tokyo, and several places in between, you’ll interact with a global team of 70+ nationalities operating in 12 cities (and counting)
  • Inspire teams - with your ideas, knowledge, self-starting attitude, and security insight, you’ll directly drive innovation and help us fuel the revolution to make money borderless!

A bit about you:

  • You’re passionate and knowledgeable about security systems, access controls, as well as CCTV
  • You’re passionate and knowledgeable about safety and security standards in the workplace
  • You’re an exceptional communicator. At home in our free-spirited culture, comfortable working across timezones and cultures, and also a professional liaison for third party contacts
  • You’re a master problem solver. Confident making decisions on your own, you like to face new challenges every day, and you’re quick on your feet but cool under pressure in tense situations
  • You’re flexible. Willing to work with the PSC so you’re scheduled for maximum timezone coverage and ready to be available for emergencies outside of regular hours. You’re also willing and able to travel to other TransferWise offices as needed
  • You’re responsible. You’re thrive working autonomously most of the time and you’re self-motivated to always get “it” done, but you’re also a great team player who feeds off collaboration with other smart people
  • You’re excited about the opportunity to balance security with freedom and eager to help to build a security conscious culture in our offices
  • You’re computer literate beyond flipping the on/off switch. You’re at a level where you can ping a VPN, for example, and troubleshoot minor tech issues
  • You’d hate a job where everyday is 100% routine, you’re committed and embrace a varied workload, and you’re patient with unexpected interruptions (a 10-minute call at night to resolve an issue is no sweat)
  • We’re willing to work with the right person, but at a minimum, we need someone with either education and theoretical understanding or hands on experience in physical security, though not necessarily both
  • You’re already legally authorized to work for any employer in the US. We cannot support visas for this role. This is a physical position in Tampa, Florida.

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • A certification or degree in Physical Security (PSP certification or Security Management degree focus)
  • Strong IT proficiency
  • Knowledge of FL/NY safety, physical security, and information security laws
  • Additional language other than English is always welcome
Please note - a resume and cover letter are required with your application (please submit as PDF). If either are missing, your application will not be considered! 

Some of your benefits:

  • Pay range starting at $17/hour, based on experience
  • Stock options in a company recently valued at $3.5 billion
  • Medical, dental, & vision insurance, Flexible and Health Spending Account options
  • Company paid - Life insurance, AD&D insurance, short & long-term disability, and an EAP program
  • Very generous Paid Time Off, paid holidays, sick days, a volunteer day, and other leave opportunities
  • 401k with match 
  • All-expenses-paid annual company holiday in Europe
  • Flexible work opportunities
  • All the coffee, fruit, and breakfast foods you could want, provided daily
  • Doggy friendly office
