Senior Security Specialist

Our client develops a cutting-edge big data software application, which provides behavioural and predictive analysis based on consumer data. The software allows their customers to capture vast amounts of data and visualises the key trends in the data, so that they can make commercial decisions around marketing and fraud prevention.

Due to expansion, our client is looking for a Security Engineer to join their team to build and develop an operational security department. Reporting into the Head IT and Security, you will be responsible for delivering and developing a fully-functioning operational security environment, working closely with the Head of IT and Security to understand the organisations requirements. The role requires a technical mindset and a full willingness to be hands-on.

The ideal candidate will have most of the following:

- Experience implementing and managing a variety of tools including SIEM, IAM, APT and DLP solutions, from a variety of vendors.
- An expertise in analysing and identifying organisation-wide security weaknesses.
- An up-to-date understanding of the current threat landscape, including a full understanding of current attack methods
- A real drive to mature security within an organisation, specifically a passion for driving proactive security as opposed to reactive security.

Offering a competitive basic salary with benefits that include 25 days annual leave, regular bonus scheme and free Friday lunches, this is an excellent opportunity to take the next step in your career.
