02About the Role

As a Senior member of the security team at, you will have the opportunity to shape the security detection, operations and incident response processes. You will research and discover the latest threats on product, cloud infrastructure, workloads, containers and develop methods, queries and dashboard to detect and visualize events of interest. You will develop incident response playbooks to allow quick resolution of identified security events. Your mission will be to ensure that the attacks on environment and customer content remain visible to the security team.

We’re looking for someone that has deep technical expertise in threat detection, incident root cause analysis, querying and alerting using SIEM systems, automation, AWS cloud, and experience to join a fast-paced, growing team of security engineers tackling challenging problems at scale.

  • Incident Response: You will rapidly scope, contain and eradicate threats, minimizing financial, legal, business and content losses. Services include but are not limited to root-cause analysis, memory and disk forensics, reverse engineering, network containment, threat eradication and postmortems. You will also develop and refine processes, plans and procedures and partner closely with Legal, Comms and other stakeholders across the business.
  • Threat Intelligence: Instead of solely relying on a single data source or indicators (IP, Domain), you will correlate various data sources and publicly accessible information (open source threat intelligence feed) to create an end-to-end event chain. You will conduct research to keep up to date on threat actors and new TTPs.



  • Extensive experience in detecting and responding to attacks
  • Able to solve large, complex technical problems
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills; people are delighted when they read your blog posts, threat reports and/or postmortems
  • Self-driven, autonomous and can contribute to the strategy and roadmap of the team
  • Experience in one or more programming languages (Python, Node.js, Go) and automating threat detection and response activities

  • Knowledge of MITRE attacks and frameworks
  • Experience in analyzing and correlating large security datasets in the cloud using ElasticSearch to detect attacks
  • You will develop threat reports to inform stakeholders, projects and priorities
  • Experience in developing incident response playbooks and automation
  • Knowledge and experience in threat detection and incident response in AWS and its services
