  • Ensure security and data privacy is embedded by design in all aspects of the component build and run lifecycle
  • Collaborate with other technical product owners or technology functions to ensure all functional and non-functional capabilities required by any stakeholders are appropriately identified, delivered and measured (where appropriate) by the platform as a whole

Your profile:
