Penetration Test Team Leader

Job Description

Siemens Mobility is a separately managed company of Siemens AG. As a leader in transport solutions for more than 160 years, Siemens Mobility is constantly innovating its portfolio in its core areas of rolling stock, rail automation and electrification, turnkey systems, intelligent traffic systems as well as related services. With digitalization, Siemens Mobility is enabling mobility operators worldwide to make infrastructure intelligent, increase value sustainably over the entire lifecycle, enhance passenger experience and guarantee availability.

Digitalization confronts many enterprises with great challenges and will change the processes immensely within the next years. Also, Siemens Mobility faces these tasks with our help.


We are shaping digitalization – through security


In the digital age, Cybersecurity is a basic prerequisite if companies are going to be able to protect their critical infrastructures and sensitive data and ensure uninterrupted business operations.


Thus, Cybersecurity is a top priority at Siemens Mobility. Our products, systems, and services adequately protect our customers’ data and equipment according to the current state-of-the-art. Yet, we also realize we can’t cover the entire field by ourselves. That’s why, in November 2017, Siemens took the initiative and announced that we would join partners in industry, government, and society at the Munich Security Conference (MSC) to sign a Charter of Trust, publicize it, and encourage its general adoption.


Our vision is that for our society, customers and Siemens, we are the trusted partner in the digital world by providing industry leading Cyber security.


Together we make Cybersecurity real - because it matters.


We are looking for a Team Lead for a small pentest team to work in the central Cybersecurity Team of Siemens Mobility. As valuable member of the Cybersecurity team you lead IT Security assessments on Siemens Mobility IT systems, products, services, factories / depots and software development centers. 

During this process you highlight important observations, translate and present technical findings into management information so that they can take effective actions.


Our pentesters are true professionals in terms of thinking outside the box. They explore every possibility when it comes to effective ways of deceiving, circumventing, and weakening IT systems so that they can protect them even more successfully. To this end, they ask questions that have no answers yet and look for gaps where hardly anyone would suspect them. This is crucial for digitalization! Join our team and we will foster your continuing professional development and an exchange with colleagues from all over the world. One thing is certain: your ideas will not be filed away, but almost always find their way into company practice. Worldwide. We make real what matters. This is your new role.

  • Organize security audits, pentests
  • Coordinate the activities of the pentest team
  • Present results to management and discuss observations with technical responsible
