What will I be doing?

As a Senior Security Engineer, your objective for this role is designing, building and implementing robust solutions and apply controls for the security of employees, customers, and assets across the group.

As a senior within the team you will be able to play a key role in helping to drive change, develop best practices, and enhance our security capabilities. This a chance for someone to take on a role where you can make genuine and meaningful changes beyond the surface.

Furthermore, it would be amazing if you’re able to impart your knowledge on other members of the team through mentorship and guidance when it comes to proper secure design and how to make long term architecture decisions.

  • Tooling development – Developing tools or scripting to solve novel issues in unusual environments
  • Key principles of security network design – Segmentation of networks; key components in a secure network, processes to prevent misconfiguration.
  • Analysis of security (and non-security) logging – Network protocol analysis; Windows/Linux networking/logging analysis.
