Head of Engineering

UK based
Hybrid working

Naq is looking to recruit an ambitious Head of Engineering to take the Naq platform to the next level. Aspart of the Naq management team, you will:

  • Grow, manage, and shape the engineering team (both outsourced and direct employees);
  • Be responsible for the successful delivery of the Naq platform according to the product
  • Ensure the development team are empowered to do their best work, specifically that the Naq
    AWS platform is configured appropriately
  • Ensure any software developed is built according to requirements
  • Ensure that the platform is secure and conforms to regulatory requirements
  • Communicate with stakeholders throughout the organisation and understand their needs,
    including all Naq engineers, business managers and commercially oriented teams to ensure the goals are clear and the vision is aligned with business objectives.

This role will start out as a remote role, but Naq is moving to a hybrid form of working. Before the end of the year, we will likely open an office in the London area. If the perfect candidate for this role is outside of that area, however, we will not be geograph-ist!

This is a permanent position.

  • 5 years of experience in DevOps of IAAS platforms, especially AWS
  • Experience in managing technical teams
  • Experience of working within an agile project management environment
  • Proven experience in working within a team to produce SaaS web applications
  • In-depth knowledge of information security
  • Experience in .NET/C# and/or AngularJS (optional but desired)


Naq Cyber is an international startup that provides an automated cybersecurity and compliance platform to small and medium businesses around the UK and Europe. Naq is changing the face of cyber security with its diverse team and jargon-free approach to the traditional security and legal sectors.

We started Naq to help small business owners that didn’t know what to do or where to start when it came to securing their information. We have worked closely with these small businesses to ensure we would build a solution tailored to their needs, which was easy to use, affordable and -dare we say- fun. Through the combination of our application with help from our legal and security experts, we work together with our customers to make sure their business is compliant with the law and regulations, as well as protected from cybercriminals and human mistakes.

Join us as we tackle the European and British cybersecurity markets by automating compliance, simplifying security, and having a little fun while we’re at it.

Whilst our primary mission is to become Europe’s de facto SME security and compliance solution, as well as protect our customers’ livelihoods, our secondary priority is to make our team’s time at Naq the highlight of their career.

We are a growing startup which means we need to work hard to achieve our mission, but we recognise that the only way we can achieve this mission is to work with the very best people. We will give you all of the tools and support you need to help you with your work, including any additional training courses and qualifications if needed.

In addition to enabling you to be the best consultant that has ever existed, you can also expect the following:

  • A starting salary of £78k, with the possibility of moving up quickly based on performance
  • 25 days annual leave (+ bank holidays)
  • Private healthcare
  • Mental health support
  • Employee stock options
  • High quality IT
  • Regular team building events

Naq is an incredibly diverse team, so naturally, we value candidates with different backgrounds,experiences, and perspectives. We do not discriminate based upon ethnicity, age, gender identity andexpression, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status, disability, or veteranstatus. We're committed to building a company that is an inclusive environment for all.
