  • Execute day-to-day technology assurance plans and reviews, engaging with stakeholders, scoping reviews, drafting audit memos, and producing high-quality audit reports.
  • Assist with drafting audit and risk committee papers.
  • Ensure work aligns with our audit methodology and is conducted to the highest technical standards.
  • Review and assess internal controls, policies, and procedures to mitigate risks associated with our evolving technology landscape.
  • Advise management on technology risk impacts and enhance IT policies, procedures, and performance.
  • Cultivate strong relationships with senior stakeholders to promote proactive risk management.
  • Provide expertise in evaluating technology controls, identifying gaps, and recommending solutions.
  • Utilize data analytics and continuous monitoring to assess key risks.
  • Identify opportunities to enhance business processes and controls through advisory audits.
  • Drive continuous improvement within the Internal Audit department.
  • Manage and mentor team members and external resources as needed.

Skills and Abilities

What we need from you:

  • Strong knowledge of control frameworks (e.g., COBIT, ITIL, NIST) to identify, prioritize, and assess IT risks, including cyber, data, access/change/configuration management, and BC&DR.
  • Proven ability to critically assess controls and risks, drive actions, and deliver results both individually and as part of a team in a fast-paced tech environment.
  • Strong project management skills to handle multiple projects and develop audit programs and procedures without established guidance.
  • Proficiency in auditing, internal controls, business processes, finance, and risk identification and management.
  • Effective presentation skills to communicate persuasively with stakeholders and senior leadership.
  • Excellent data interrogation skills and the ability to analyze and interpret large datasets to solve problems.
  • 4 to 5 years of experience in an Internal Audit function or a Big 4/consulting audit practice.
  • Analytical skills with a strong affinity for numbers; experience with data analytics or data science tools (e.g., SQL, Python, R, Alteryx) is highly desirable.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Power BI is preferred, and experience in Navision is a plus.
  • Good proficiency in English (written and spoken); a second language, especially Spanish or German, is preferred.

Experience and Education

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, or a related field.
  • Relevant professional qualifications such as CIA, CISA, CISM, CISSP, or CRISC.
  • Extensive experience in technology auditing, IT security, and/or IT risk management, showing progression in areas of responsibility.
  • A solid understanding of ITGCs, application controls, computer-assisted audit techniques/data analytics, assessment practices, and various IT security software, operating systems, databases, networking technologies, and emerging cybersecurity risks.
  • Proficiency in cybersecurity concepts, data analysis tools, and IT governance and controls (e.g., COBIT, NIST, ITIL).
