Do you have what it takes to join our journey?

We’re proud to be part of a diverse team of security specialists, with different backgrounds, unique specialisations and representing more than 20 nationalities. Despite these differences, we work towards a common goal: ‘Contributing to the safe digital journey of our clients, to mitigate the chances of a cyber-attack’. We’re able to reach the best results because we integrate our areas of expertise and work together as a team.

Northwavers dedicated to create Safe Digital Journeys. let’s introduce ourselves!

Pizza, Phun and Pwnage

What’s a better way to get to know your colleagues than by enjoy drinks together or by sharing a meal? At Northwave we think this is really important and therefore we regularly organize company events.

PPP sessions

Are you ready to join our monthly PPP (Pizza, Phun & Pwnage) sessions? We start off with having pizza, beers and/or Fritz soda’s at the office. After that a few Northwavers share what they’ve been up to, what cool stuff they’ve learned or maybe a fun side project they’ve been working on.

GENERAL MEETINGS

Our quarterly meetings help us keep the bigger picture in mind! The management team gives us a recap on what we’ve done and a preview of where we’re heading. There’s always plenty of time for dinner and drinks, a bingo night or some moves on the dance floor!

FAMILY DAY IN THEME PARK EFTELING

Once upon a time.. there was a big group of Northwave families in a theme park. You’d expect the kids to be most excited, but secretly the adult Northwavers like it too (or maybe even more..).

Marathon

Did you know Team Northwave ran the Marathon of New York in November 2019 and Berlin in 2021? Our next goal? Running the remaining big 6! In 2020 a new tradition was born: the Northwave half marathon, with the possibility to run the half-half (10,5 km) marathon. And yes, you will receive a medal.

Office wellness

We have a licensed Yoga teacher in our midst’s that organises online morning yoga sessions. What a way to kick-start the day.

And if you’re not tired yet..

What else? Well, bouldering, volleyball tournaments, indoor football, salsa workshops, mud runs and a trip to a trampoline park. We can’t wait to hear what new things you can introduce us to!

Northwave weekend

Have you ever slept on a boat for a weekend? Or in a castle? Playing (card) games, joining challenges, showing your dancing moves or doing karaoke? Luckily, we still have the pictures! Will you join us next year during this legendary weekend?

Christmas party

Matching sweaters? Check! Christmas spirit? Check! While having dinner and drinks we like to celebrate the end of the year together. And even during the pandemic, we found a way to virtually do so.

AND MORE NORTHWAVE GET-TOGETHERS

That’s not all! We enjoy each other’s company. You can expect LAN parties at the office, CTFs, trips to security events, fun development projects on our 3D printer, Friday drinks (vrijmibo’s in Dutch) with the best bitterballen (Dutch snack) in town and fun teambuilding events that may include hot tubs, painting clinics or DJ sets.

Social Responsibilities

We think it’s important to give back to society. We do this in a variety of ways. Below you can find some examples of the things we’re already working on.

Knowledge sharing

We contribute to a safe digital world. Maybe you have seen one of our colleagues participating in a webinar or speaking at an event? Or maybe you’ve read one of the informative blogs and Threat responses that we regularly send out. If not, check them out on our news page!

Education

We’ve set up partnerships that we’re proud of. We visit universities to provide guest lectures or join thesis defences to share our expertise. We also supervise graduation projects and help these students grow towards security experts!

Reservists

We’re honoured we were nominated Reservists Employer of 2020. We believe it’s important to support our colleagues so they can do what they enjoy. And we value that by doing that, we contribute to society’s safety.

Support (row, row, row your boat!)

We’re very proud the rowing associations U.S.R. Triton (Utrecht), A.L.S.R.V. Asopos de Vliet (Leiden), D.R.V. Euros (Enschede), E.S.R. Thêta (Eindhoven) and D.S.R.V. Laga (Delft) wear the Northwave logo on their gear. There’s even a Northwave Regatta coming up, how cool is that?!

ITVitae

We work together with ITVitae by providing the security module in their training program. Several colleagues enjoy visiting ’the monastery’ to teach these talented students. Some of the former students have now become Northwavers too!

Last, but not least..

We are co-founders of the European Cyber Security Federation, the Dutch cyber-sector confederation “Cyberveilig Nederland” and cooperate with ‘Hack_Right’. Can’t wait to add our next collaboration(s) here, to be continued..

Office sneak peek

Even though we’ve all gotten used to the ‘new normal’; keeping 1,5 metres distance from each other and working from home… we do really miss our office in Utrecht. And why wouldn’t we, when our office looks this cool?

Curious? Check out our 1 minute sneak peek!
