About Railsbank

Railsbank is the world’s leading global open banking platform that gives customers access to global financial services with 5 lines of code.

The company was founded by serial finTech entrepreneurs who previously founded successful and award winning companies like Evolution and CurrencyCloud.

Since starting in 2016 in London the company has expanded across Europe, launched in Singapore and is currently extending capabilities in SE Asia, USA and Australia.

We are now scaling the company across Europe and SE Asia and looking for exceptional people who share the same core values to join team Railsbank.

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Head of PCI (Payments Card Industry) Assurance to be a part of our team. This role is advertised to join us in either London, Munich, or Dublin.

The Role

Building on the high growth and success that Railsbank has experienced, we have exciting plans for further expansion, and to help these, we have committed to taking on additional accrediations and assurances. One of these is to gain (and keep!) our Level 1 PCI-DSS certification.

This will be a cross-departmental role, and you'll be reporting to our Group CISO.

Key Responsibilities
  • Help us gain our PCI-DSS Level 1 Certification
  • Help us keep our PCI-DSS certification
  • Project management
  • Stakeholder communications — internally and externally
  • Keep up to date with PCI-DSS
  • Keep up to date with fintech industry and wider InfoSec risks/threats
  • Reporting
  • Potentially delivering training to the Railsbank Team.
Railsbank is growing very rapidly, but remains a small company in which the team are required to contribute to many aspects of their departments’ roles in the wider business. The rate of change is very fast, and the role may also require work being undertaken, sometimes at short notice.

What We Look For In Your Professional Skills

You’re likely to be educated to degree level or equivalent, with excellent communication skills (across all media) and possess the ability to ‘get things done’ in a flexible dynamic organisation without having to rely on line-authority over other team members.

Skills/experience Required
  • Analytical, and attentive to detail
  • 4+ years working in a team that delivers PCI-DSS Level 1
  • Expertise in PCI-DSS
  • Experience working with ISO 27001 companies (we're in the process of getting our certification)
  • Working in regulated industries, ideally fintechs, start-ups, and scale-ups
  • Relationships with QSAs, stakeholders, and others
  • Strong cloud-native IT knowledge (we favour AWS)
  • Project management skills (we use agile methods for development, but some projects are more suited to waterfall)
  • Confident, transparent, open communication style to enable coordination with peers and customers
  • Highly self-motivated with strong sense of maturity.

Working relationships

You will be working with various departments in the company, including Growth, Security, Technology, Risk, Operations, Cards, Product, and Sales.

Role location and hours

The role will be a full-time role and (under normal circumstances) you will be based from one of our offices in either London, Munich, or Dublin.

What we look for in our team members and our values

Being an integral part of the Railsbank team and sharing our values are important to us.

The environment at Railsbank is fast-paced, exciting, and dynamic. It suits people that love to collaborate and support one-another.

We are all driven by the same values and are looking to welcome new people to the team that share these values.

Our values

Excellence, accountability, diversity, work/life balance, trust, fun, inclusive, friendship, noble cause, and respect.
