Security Engineer

6 Month Contract

550 per day Inside

Remote/ 1 day a week in the Welwyn Garden City office

Job Description:


We're looking for a security engineer to support our existing capability. This role is focused around detection engineering and supporting the maturity of our detection capability.

· Detection quality Checks: For any new detections or heavily modified detections, a number of quality gate checks are assessed to make sure the detection is of high value and sufficient quality to go live.

· The engineer is responsible for making sure any new detections don't have a negative impact on incident response, e.g. high ticket volumes.

· FAST Review process: All analysts have a low friction method to provide fast feedback to engineering on tuning requirements for detections. This role is responsible for reviewing these, and either fix if simple, or generate engineering sprint tickets if the fixes are more involved.

· Detection Review: On a rolling basis detections are reviewed for validity, and make sure they work across the company. The engineer is accountable for reviewing, tuning if simple or passing on to engineering to fix if more detailed.

Skills required:

Splunk, GIT, python, Linux and detection engineering, or SOC analyst experience.
