About Us

At Network Guard , for more than 11 years, we’ve paved the way towards a more private and secure digital world. We’re a global SaaS company and an industry leader in cybersecurity. Millions of consumers worldwide use our internet privacy and security products every day.

Who we're looking for

Take the lead of our Router team. We plan to massively increase the number of customers using our router product and  dramatically increase the feature set which the product offers. In order to achieve this we need you to both lead and significantly grow our Router Team to meet the businesses needs.

What you will be doing


  • Ensure your team has the capacity and skills to meet the needs of the Router Product Owner.
  • Ensure boundaries between components of the router tech stack are well delineated – avoid monolithic stacks which require broad skills sets for developers.

  • Ensure your application can be shipped to customers at least every 2 weeks.
  • Ensure your code has excellent test coverage with a strong affinity for automated testing.
  • Ensure we never ship sev1/sev2 regressions, in particular regressions which lead to users bricking their routers.
  • Ensure your software meets a high security bar – never ship P1/P2 security bugs.
  • Ensure projects have well defined requirements, technical designs, threat models and test plans.
  • Define and measure metrics for the performance of your product, set SLAs and ensure you meet them: router bandwidth, network stability, ability to get and stay connected
  • Own your team’s SDL processes and ensure processes are simple and efficient
  • Hire for your team and ensure it has the skills and capacity to meet the business’s needs.
  • Define roles and expectations, train your team and hold them accountable in meeting the highest standards.
