    2. Technology watch: You will follow new tools, technical evolutions and industry trends, and share your knowledge with the team. This proactive approach will ensure that our offerings remain cutting-edge, relevant, and aligned with our clients’ ever-evolving needs.
    3. Relationships strengthening with our trusted business partners/suppliers: You will evolve to become our key representative in application security associations, or during application security events/conferences/meetings.
    4. Asset creation: Developing new assets and methodologies to complement and enhance our solutions will soon be part of your responsibility. These assets and methodologies will not only increase the efficiency of our solutions but also support and empower your colleagues in delivering high-quality results.
