Senior Cloud SecOps Engineer


Fully flexible hours

Job Description


The InfoSec team is led by our CISO and comprises of four pillars; Information Security Officers, Offensive Security, Defensive Engineering and Security Operations.

The Security Operations team is newly formed and empowered to deliver our detection and response capability for threat management, to continually protect our customers, platform and business.


We are expanding the Security Operations team extensively, and this is an exciting role as part of an advanced detection and response team. You will have the opportunity to shape and develop engineering-centric approaches and solutions to security problems.

  • Identify and maintain awareness of timely and appropriate threat intelligence (supported by Threat Intel Analyst)
  • Plan and co-ordinate data source collection
  • Prioritise detection engineering
  • Develop new and existing supportive orchestration and automation actions
  • Analyse event data to triage severity and priority (supported by our software, platform and IT engineering teams as necessary)
  • Conduct technical investigations and response to threats (supported by Security IR Manager).


A background in Security Operations, SOC Analyst, Security Engineer or SRE with experience in one or more of the core SOC function areas and a strong aptitude own and work across them all.
