Nice and simple, we are looking for a Security Engineer; one who lives and breathes security, who wants to learn about the newest additions to the threat landscape, who is aware of the latest SIEM solution to take over the market and is looking for a role where they can be a real influence on a company infrastructure.

We are working with a global organisation, with a pre-existing security team who are looking to build their team further with skilled professionals who want to do more, who are curious to solve problems with innovative solutions and who like security. You wouldn’t do a job without liking it surely… Or maybe that’s why you’ve arrived at this advert.

About you…
Just to repeat it, you love security. You like finding solutions to the latest exploits, like hardening the infrastructure so that the world’s best pentesters would struggle to get through and you like working in a collaborative team. With a focus on automation, you love being hands on, configuring SIEMs to take away BAU tasks so you can focus on hunting threats, analysing malware or contributing to the security community with research.

What you’ll be doing…
You’ll be part of a team designing and implementing solutions to secure the internal infrastructure; everything from monitoring solutions to vulnerability suites. You’ll integrate with the lead team directing incident response activities, you’ll build threat hunting capabilities and you’ll take an automated approach to streamline existing processes.

What we are looking for…
* A good level of experience working within dedicated security teams; whether as an analyst, an engineer, a consultant or any other fancy job title given!
* Experience working within cloud based environments (AWS, Azure, GCP – any will do!) with an emphasis on automation and scale when securing infrastructures.
* Experience working with SIEM solutions (AlienVault, QRadar, Splunk, LogRhythm etc), with vulnerability scanners (OpenVAS, Nessus, Wireshark etc) and penetration testing toolkits (Metasploit, Nmap, Burp etc)
* Ability to build vulnerability suites, threat hunting capabilities and detection strategies.

If you’ve got any certificates (GWAPT, OSCE, OSCP, CPT, CHFI, GCIH, CCSP, GIAC, CISSP etc) it’s great but not essential, experience for us is much better.

What next…
Simple, apply and we’ll run through everything in more detail with you.
