At Konecranes, we believe that great customer experience is built on the people behind the Konecranes name – people committed to providing our customers with lifting equipment and services that lift their businesses. Everything we do, we do with passion and drive. 

We believe diversity drives business success and is the foundation for our growth. We welcome different backgrounds and skills that enrich our community and we promote a place where we can ALL be ourselves. This is what makes Konecranes a unique place to work.



Operation Technology (OT) Security Specialist / Engineer is a new global role within our Cybersecurity team. Konecranes is trusted every day to lift, handle and move what the world needs. Our goal is that customers choose Konecranes as the cybersecure option for safe and secure material handling solutions – and at the same time ensure that Konecranes itself is resilient and protected against the digital threats.

Your key responsibilities: 

  • Conducting security assessments in the factories and distribution centers
  • Implementing Konecranes security requirements for industrial control systems and networks
  • Performing technical audits of OT systems and providing implementation support
  • Facilitating OT security champion network
  • Creating technical guidelines and training materials
  • Educating teams on OT cybersecurity risks and best practices

The exact scope of work can be finalized based on the candidate's experience and skills. Your ultimate goal is to help identify security risks in the factories and distribution centers and provide advisory and hands-on support for implementing the required risk mitigations while ensuring safety and reliability of Konecranes manufacturing operations.

OT Security Specialist / Engineer reports to Head of OT Security, which is also a new role at Konecranes.


What should you bring?

To achieve these goals, you should have experience from designing and implementing security controls and solutions for industrial control systems and networks. You may be an experienced ICS/OT systems engineer or operator with enthusiasm towards cybersecurity. Or maybe you are an ICS/OT security auditor or consultant who wants to make a career move into an interesting global company where you have a chance to influence and gain experience on multiple aspects of a global OT security program. 


What matters most, is that you have a basic understanding of manufacturing operations and the most common OT systems and protocols. You feel at ease and excited of performing OT system configuration review or supporting the analysis of cybersecurity anomalies and incidents in OT networks. 


  • As a person, you are systematic, detail-oriented, and have the ability to carry out tasks and projects to their completion.
  • You’re fluent in English (spoken and written).
  • OT/ICS specific network and security certifications considered a plus.


What we offer to you    
You’ll have insight into OT security development at a global scale – with an interesting product range. We’re manufacturing material handling solutions that are used in demanding environments, such as shipyards, automotive and energy industries.

We offer our employees a flexible work environment tailored to their life situation as well as performance-based incentives, comprehensive occupational healthcare and insurance, and the opportunity to take part in the employee stock ownership program.
OT Security Specialist is based in any of our main locations in EMEA, but it goes without saying that the remote & hybrid working is a part of our modern ways of working. The role requires travel - 6-8 trips per year (each for about 1 week), locations - Germany, Sweden, USA, Finland, Czech Republic, China, India (in total more than 30 factories or distribution centers).
