iSTOX is Asia's first fully regulated STO exchange platform based on blockchain technology. We are licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, with seed investments by the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and Temasek (Heliconia). We are in the business of innovating capital markets with blockchain technology, and building the next-generation exchange platform to facilitate connection between users and holders of capital in a regulated and transparent marketplace for tokenized offerings.

We are seeking a Tech Enthusiast to be part of our Technical team which strives to constantly innovate and build state-of-art technology for our platform. You will enjoy working in a fast-paced start-up environment, and with a group of exceptionally product focused self-starters who want to make a difference. We are looking for a Security Engineer who is unafraid to tackle problems, possesses a strong ownership mindset, and is willing to go the extra mile to Initiate the Change.

The Security Engineer is on the front line of designing and implementing software best practices, code reviews and automated testing/scanning tools, to protect our company’s assets from threats. You should be a thought leader in security engineering, vulnerability assessment and intrusion detection to effectively discover and resolve bugs that expose our customers and codes to automated botnets, malware and bad actors, as well as preventing exposure to as-yet-unknown vulnerabilities in bleeding edge technology.

The Tech Team is made up of motivated professionals dedicated to the cause and we look out for like-minded individuals to join us. If you are inspired to take on the challenge of building the Exchange of the future, we would love to speak with you!
