Junior / Senior Cyber Security Threat Hunter

  • Reference IP28267-JS
  • Salary £30,000 - £65,000
  • Job type Permanent

If there was a threat to their global domination the Separatist Army or Empire would call in Bounty Hunters to eradicate the issue. Right now, we are looking for a Jango (Senior) and Boba (Junior) Threat Hunter to use their skills for the light side rather than the dark…

IntaPeople are currently looking for skilled Security Engineers who love nothing more than finding new APT’s, new exploits, new Malware strains, new vulnerabilities and making sure they know everything about them to educate their clients to potential threats.

Successful candidates will be monitoring target networks, analysing traffic and incidents, and reporting these back to improve their customers’ security. You will also manage events from detection to resolution, and depending on your experience level, either be trained by the best, or help to train the new best!

At the moment the department hunt threats 24/7, 365 days a year. Initially we need candidates willing to complete shift patterns (4-on-4-off) however there will be more flexibility coming to this in the next few months.

We are looking for candidates who are already working with, or passionate about learning, the below skillsets;
• Ability to investigate potential compromises and respond accordingly.
• Forensic investigations within networks and wider infrastructures.
• Experience with Malware Analysis; could be automatic or manual, static or dynamic.
• Good background within offensive (Penetration Testing) or defensive (Incident Response) security.
• Experience with programming and scripting; C++, C#, Ruby, Bash, Python etc.
• A good level of knowledge of offensive techniques, APT’s, TTPs within security.
• Ideally you will have relevant security certifications; CREST, CRIA, CCNIA, CCMRE, CCHIA, SANS GIAC, GCFA, OSCP, CRT.

The background you have is irrelevant; you can come from a SOC background investigating incidents, you may come from a Penetration Testing background hunting down anomalies. For our client the most important thing is the ability to collaborate with the wider team, the passion for security and the desire to develop further as a Threat Hunter.

The company have a SOC in place, but they are more focussed on finding the threats before the alerts go off; the aim is to be one step in front of sophisticated attackers.

In short, “This is the job you are looking for”….
