Our CyberSecurity Team is looking for their new Portfolio Manager, based in Lille or Paris! 

DECATHLON is accelerating its digital transformation with the mission of becoming THE digital sports platform that will allow customers to discover our universe through numerous local experiences centered around sport. Our digital teams based in Lille, Paris, Berlin, Hong Kong, Montreal (and many others…) bringing together more than 1,500 employees are united to build and grow digital products with the aim of always offering the best value to our users.


Over the past years Decathlon has invested heavily in the Digital space and building excellence around delivery. Our ambitions for the coming year are big and we want to continue to grow our capabilities and Digital expertise. As part of this investment, we have established a PMO (Project, Program and Portfolio Office) in our Digital organization. 

The Decathlon Security team ensures the protection and security of the entire group: it oversees governance strategy and risk management processes, ensures compliance of our information systems, defines the technical means necessary for incident detection and response, as well as associated control measures.

Information Security has always been a cornerstone of Decathlon. This aspect is further strengthened to support our digital transformation; in this regard, we are seeking a PMO.

  • Actively contribute to shaping the Portfolio management role at Decathlon, including defining learning and career paths.
