Job Description


The Content Development Engineer will play a pivotal role within our Security Monitoring team. The primary responsibility of this role is to design, build, and maintain content for our Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions, ensuring our security monitoring capabilities are both effective and efficient. This role will also be tasked with supporting and maintaining our SIEM tools, ensuring optimal performance, availability, and integration with other security solutions. Who we are
The UK’s fastest broadband network. The nation’s best-loved mobile brand. And, one of the UK's biggest companies too.
Diverse, hard-working teams - jam packed with serious talent. Together, we offer the UK more choice and better value, through our boundary-pushing, customer-championing values and ambitions.
Together, we are Virgin Media O2, and we can't wait to see what you can do.
Accessible, inclusive and equitable for all
Virgin Media O2 is an equal opportunities employer, and we're working hard to remove bias and barriers for our people and candidates. So, we build equity and inclusion into everything we do, from the policies we craft to the relationships we shape. We support and encourage you to be your authentic self throughout your application journey with us.
The must haves
In order to be considered, you must have the following experience:

  • Strong experience in SIEM content development and SIEM tool administration.
  • Strong understanding of security operations, threat landscape, and threat detection
  • methodologies.
  • Hands-on experience with SIEM tools (preference to Splunk and/or cloud native SIEMs like
  • Azure Sentinel or Google Chronicle).
  • Strong scripting skills (e.g., Python, Bash) and experience with SIEM API integrations.


The other stuff we are looking for
We'd also love you to bring;

  • Excellent problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills.
  • Relevant certifications such as GCIA, GCIH, or other SIEM-specific certifications are a plus.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology, Computer Science, or a related field desirable
  • but not required.

What's in it for you
Our goal is to celebrate our people, their lives and everything in-between. We aim to create a culture that empowers everyone to bring the best versions of themselves to work each and every day. We believe the most inclusive and diverse culture makes for a better business and a brighter world.
Working at Virgin Media O2, you get a bumper reward package bursting with benefits, and loads of extras you can add if you’d like to. These are designed to support both you and your loved ones, making sure that you’re covered no matter what life throws your way. Next steps
Once you've applied the next steps of the process, if successful, are likely to include a personality profile test followed by a technical and competency based interview.
