Head of IT/InfoSec

Hemnet has more than 60 million visits every month. People come to us to find joy, inspiration and - most important - their new homes. Our small IT and InfoSec teams are essential for Hemnet’s operations and we are now looking for a Head of IT/IS to further bolster these two amazing teams.

Our mission

Hemnet’s IT team supports the business by managing shared systems like Google Workspace, Trello, 1Password, etc, as well as helping other departments with administrative tasks in their systems and general computer support. This service function performs a wide range of tasks and has touchpoints with every department and almost every system in use at Hemnet.

Our InfoSec team helps secure the business by developing policies, evaluating systems and processes, and being a driver for security initiatives. This includes disaster recovery planning, engaging red teamers, responding to Hemnets bug bounty program, working with GDPR compliance, and driving towards a Zero Trust authentication structure. We expect you to assume a mentoring role for our current staff, helping develop and shape competences.

These teams are currently in a state of growth and adaptation to meet the needs of the company. Determining future staffing requirements, setting priorities, and establishing ways of working for the teams will be some of the early tasks you take on.

Both teams are an important part of Hemnet’s operations, and as our Head of IT/IS you’ll be leading both these teams and creating gateways for them to enable the business to move forward at pace.

What you’ll do

  • Staff responsibility for IT and InfoSec
  • Setting the vision, strategy, roadmap and prioritization for the IT and InfoSec teams
  • Building a sustainable IT and InfoSec team to support Hemnet’s future growth
  • Mentoring and building team competence

Who we are looking for

We believe you are a technical leader who’s comfortable making both architectural and strategic decisions. Personal qualities are important for us, and you should be someone who thrives in a collaborative environment and always wants to bring out the best of people in your team and around you.

  • Previously worked with InfoSec questions
  • Leadership experience as a team lead, manager or similar
  • Experience owning a backlog or, in other ways, being involved in priorities

Way of working after the pandemic:

All employees at Hemnet will have the possibility to work from the office in the central parts of Stockholm. We will also have the opportunity to work the majority of time (but not 100%) remotely from home.

Does this sound intriguing? We look forward to reading your application and learning more about what makes you tick!
