Job Details

As a Service Manager for Encryption Technologies this position is responsible for the operation and development of the Corporate Encryption Technology Platform for all Siemens business units. Typical examples are: Personal PKI, Group Encryption Services and Virtual SmartCard.

What are the Siemens Encryption Technologies?
The Siemens Encryption Technologies platform (PKI) is the basis for secure communication and storage of sensitive information and is a prerequisite for trustworthy and liable transactions via public networks. The Siemens Encryption Technologies Services act globally and guarantee:
  • the secure authentication of persons, systems and products.
  • the encryption of confidential information.
  • the digital signature of documents, business transactions and source code.
The service is hosted in a self-managed high-security data center in Munich. We do have the end-to-end responsibility for the entire range of services from infrastructure and operating systems to the applications. We manage everything from the bare metal of the servers and the VMWare environment up to the HSMs and the Certification Authority (CA)/Registration Authority (RA) software environments. Additionally, we consult internal customers on the implementation of cryptographic technology in their products and services. Our international team is located across Germany, Spain and Portugal.

This is your role:

As a Service Manager for PKI Encryption Technologies for our Corporate PKI Services you are end-to-end responsible for the development and operation of the Request Authorities (RA) and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) of the company’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

Communication with internal and external stakeholders and providers are part of your daily work. In case of problems and malfunctions, you are the decisive factor performing analyzes and measures for troubleshooting the systems and to restore the service availability in a timely manner. Security is key - observing existing security concepts and measures is part of your work.
