Security Engineer, London, to £65k package

InfoSec People, the cyber security recruitment experts, are recruiting for a Security Engineer to join an exciting, London-based cyber security technology start up.

With the help of VC-backing, this company have designed and built an innovative system for detecting malicious attacks at a very early stage. This is a small, agile business with huge potential, so the role will suit anybody looking to move away from the large MSSP or end user SOCs and into a role with greater scope. We're looking for people who want to be a critical part of building the business by creating unique solutions for customers, both commercial and public sector. In return, a competitive basic salary and share options are on offer.

As a senior member of the engineering and analysis team, your role will be to undertake threat modelling and attacker assessment in conjunction with customers' technical resources. Once complete, you'll be building an appropriate solution in the lab, deploying it into the customer environment and monitoring it over time, tuning and tweaking things over time. You'll also be responsible for managing the incident response process in the event of an attack, conducting investigations and producing reports for customers and the wider industry.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • Working with customers to identify threats and vulnerabilities
  • Assimilate the threat models into workable requirements for the security product
  • Closely monitor the deployment and configuration of the platform
  • Collect and disseminate threat intelligence from a wide range of sources
  • Build prototypes and POC products in the lab
  • Represent the company and product at industry events and forums

Skills & Experience Required

  • Experience of working in an engineering or analysis position with a security operations team
  • Understanding of secure network design, equipment and management
  • Deep knowledge of attack mitigation tools and techniques, including SIEM, IDS/IPS, AV, etc.
  • Broad knowledge of attacker types, threat hunting techniques, common vulnerabilities and malware
  • Customer-facing skills, including the ability to write high quality reports and presentations

As a brand new product to the market, we are unconcerned with candidates' knowledge around specific security tools, but an understanding of SIEM log sources, some scripting and configuration experience would be useful. Beyond that, full training and induction will be provided. Security clearance is not required at this stage, although candidates must be willing and able to undergo SC checks at some point in the near future.

This is a fulltime, permanent role based in Central London. For further information and to make an application, please send your CV to James Marklove, Lead Consultant at InfoSec People.
