Security Analyst

Role DescriptionThe successful candidate will be delivering critical information to our customers about issues affecting their networks and infrastructure. Not be confused with a traditional Security Operations Centre (SOC) role, this will involve a large amount of learning about networks, infrastructure, applications and security; applying this knowledge along with our unique monitoring technology and tools to identify threat actors who have breached the network as well as any vulnerabilities that could be used in the future. Once new vulnerabilities or attacks are detected, the candidate is expected to work with our customers to triage and help mitigate the issues. On an average day, the candidate would respond and investigate alerts generated by our technology deployments and work with our development team to improve the effectiveness of multiple Security software we use.

As a security analyst, the candidate will be delivering critical information to our customers about issues affecting their networks and infrastructure.  Not be confused with a traditional Security Operations Centre (SOC) role, this will involve a large amount of learning about networks, infrastructure, applications and security; applying this knowledge along with our unique monitoring technology and tools to identify threat actors who have breached the network as well as any vulnerabilities that could be used in the future.  Once new vulnerabilities or attacks are detected, the candidate is expected to work with our customers to triage and help mitigate the issues, 

On an average day, the candidate would respond and investigate alerts generated by our technology deployments and work with our development team to improve the effectiveness of multiple Security software we use. 

They would then hunt around the network looking at any new protocols and interactions, applying their knowledge and expertise to determine potential threats or vulnerabilities.  Often there is a need to do reverse engineering, packet analysis, statistical analysis and code-breaking.  The output of this would drive further customer interactions and collaboration with our development team to automate detection algorithms.  We would expect the candidate to be eager to get hands-on with our technology and push aggressively to develop their knowledge further.

A perfect candidate would have:

motivation, passion and determinism

excellent problem-solving skills

● a degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics or physics

● understanding and interest in low-level concepts including operating systems and networking

● an interest in security and knowledge of key concepts and protocols

● experience in penetration testing and security monitoring

● a desire and ability to learn new topics and new technologies

● hands-on experience using different operating systems and networking technologies

● excellent communication skills

The selected candidate will be joining a small but highly proficient team who have worked with us for over three years.

Any candidate must have the ability and desire to understand and learn new concepts on their own in addition to the training we will provide.  We are committed to helping the selected candidate obtain professional certifications.
