Back in 2018, I quit one Swedish unicorn (Klarna) in order to help build another one. Ever since I have been leading the security department with the vision of making sure that both our customers and our own employees can trust Tink with their data more than they trust their own bank.
I was the first full time security person but since then we have been on a constant growth trajectory, since security is seen as a business enabler for Tink that helps us stand out from the competition. We are currently 7 people strong, from 6 different countries and 2 different continents and we are looking to add a couple of more flags in our roster. We have a strict NO-BS policy and we get a kick out of seeing our company, employees and customer information being more secure today than what it was yesterday.
