At TUI we’re ambitious to become the leader in technology within the travel industry and to achieve this we are looking to build a capable, creative team who want to be a part of accomplishing that goal.

We never stop looking ahead, seeking new ways to delight our customers and grow our business. We recognise the power of digital and the massive contribution this brings to creating a truly unique and differentiated customer experience.

We are looking for a talented and dedicated leader to join the newly formed Security Architecture technology organisation which is responsible for the governance and delivery of security through the organisation.

The Security Architect will hold a critical role in overseeing the entire security architecture, with a special emphasis on cloud-based technologies and solutions. This position involves guiding key technical and design decisions, from the initial stages of ideation all the way through to their practical implementation. Working in close collaboration with Heads of Product, Heads of Technology, and other pivotal stakeholders, the Security Architect will play a vital part in ensuring the alignment of security strategies with the organisation’s overarching business outcomes. With a comprehensive understanding of both traditional and cloud-focused security challenges, the Security Architect will be a leading voice in high-level technical discussions, effectively bridging various domains to promote a secure, efficient, and cohesive well-architected environment.


As a Security Architect, you will be entrusted with the critical mission of shaping the security architecture across our diverse application suite. This role demands a strategic mindset capable of navigating the intricacies of both legacy systems and cloud technologies, with a particular emphasis on AWS. You will be invaluable in developing secure architectural blueprints and documentation, thereby enabling our teams to enhance their productivity and secure their operations in alignment with business goals.

Work closely with architecture teams across the organisation to ensure that products are secure by design. This collaborative approach aims to align both security architecture, and security engineering strategies with overall business and technology objectives, promoting a unified security message.

Craft and maintain an evolving security architecture framework that not only addresses current technological complexities but is also flexible to future threats and business needs. This involves a deep understanding of both B2B and B2C application ecosystems and their unique security considerations.

Design detailed security architecture patterns for AWS, focusing on both preventative measures against potential threats and efficient deployment methodologies. These patterns should serve as a beacon for development teams, guiding them towards secure and rapid application development and deployment.

Engage with stakeholders across different business units, understanding their unique challenges and leading the development of integrated security solutions that support diverse operational goals without compromising on speed of delivery.

Elevate the security culture within the organization by advocating for security best practices, emerging technologies, and robust security protocols. Influence decision-making processes at all levels to prioritize security in the face of evolving cyber threats.

Ensure that all architectural solutions adhere to legal and regulatory standards, implementing a proactive approach to risk management. Regularly conduct threat modelling to pre-emptively identify and address vulnerabilities.

Develop and lead comprehensive training programs aimed at elevating the security competence of technical teams. Mentor team members on best practices in AWS security, fostering a shared responsibility model for security across the organization.

Continuously monitor the evolving security landscape and technology advancements to adapt and refine risk-based security strategies. Keep abreast of the latest developments in cloud security, especially within AWS, to continually refine and enhance the organization’s security architecture. Evaluate and recommend new tools and technologies that can provide competitive advantages in security operations.
