We are an open & collaborative Fintech unicorn that lives and breathes our company values: Be Human, Better Together and Own it.
Remote working?It’s a key topic at the moment, we have addressed this by implementing a “Remote-First” policy. What this ultimately means is you have the choice as to whether you Work Fully Remotely as long as you're UK or Netherlands based, or visit the lush offices in London, Cardiff or Amsterdam; it’s up to you!
We are building a brand-new SOC team to help us maintain 24/7 SOC capability.
The SOC Analyst's mission, reporting to the SOC Team Lead, will be to monitor and maintain secure systems and networks as well as mitigate and contain identified threats.

  • Utilise sensor data and correlated logs containing Cloudflare WAF, AWS VPC, Cloudtrail, Web Proxy, and similar data to establish context and rule out false positives
  • Mitigate and contain identified threats using approved incident response methodologies
  • Initiate escalation procedures and incident response processes as defined incident response plans with the Visa 1st level SoC
  • Perform analysis of security alerts to evaluate risk, determine containment action and identify required preventative measures.
  • Review and triage security vulnerabilities
  • Identify trends, potential new technologies, and emerging threats which may impact the business
  • Implement technical controls to mitigate against security risk
  • Development and integration of security tools and systems
  • Maintain platform compliance posture against industry standards (e.g. PCI-DSS, NIST, ISO27001)
  • Investigate and respond to security incidents

What experience do you need?

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to review technical or procedural documents or process outputs to assure defined requirements have been fulfilled
  • Ability to interpret technical information and be able to relay this in an understandable manner
