As a rapidly growing company in a dynamic sector, ECSC is always interested in hearing from individuals who are keen to develop their skills and knowledge in cyber security. We have a range of roles in our Security Operations Centre, along with other field-based opportunities.
Based at our Security Operations Centre in Bradford, West Yorkshire, our Security Engineers are at the heart of the many services we provide.
From the precise management of our managed services, to the fast-paced challenge of breach responses and investigations, and the development of custom Linux-based solutions, the role is varied and rewarding, with a learning curve that matches the ever-changing threats.
Ideally, applicants should have a degree in a computer security related subject, although individuals with no formal qualifications will be considered if they possess relevant experience and skills. Experience with, and keen interest in, Linux is an advantage, as this is the platform used for most of our research and development. All applicants should have a genuine interest in cyber security.
Given the nature of our services, you should be prepared for some out-of-hours activities - after all, attackers don't work standard office hours.
If you think you have what it takes to join our team of dedicated security professionals, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Senior Security Engineer
West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Up to £35,000
This is an opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading cyber security service providers. As part of our rapid growth, ECSC is expanding its managed security systems support team, with a permanent role for an office-based senior security engineer. The successful candidate will have a strong attention to detail and an analytical approach to problem solving and trend analysis.
The main technologies we support are Linux-based, combining open source technologies with our own in-house developed systems. Typical solutions involve the management of security devices such as firewalls, IDS, WAFs, and also extensive management of hosting environments.
You should have a good understanding of TCP/IP and Linux administration, combined with a thirst for new knowledge. Your experience may not have come directly from your current or previous roles, but perhaps your own personal development. You will enjoy the challenge of supporting managed security clients, and helping to troubleshoot their problems.
Reporting directly to the SOC Manager, you will be expected to manage your own workload in order to meet defined SLAs, and continually drive your own learning and development. You should contribute to the SOC knowledgebase, and aim to keep up-to-date with the latest security developments, vulnerabilities and news stories.
The role will involve joining the out of hours rota to provide 24 hour client support, for around 1 week in 6 (with additional remuneration), along with some mentoring and training of junior team members.
