Detection (SIEM/SOC) Engineer

The relentless fight against cybercrime is our daily mission. Our Security team is on the frontlines, building a robust defense system with solid security tools and vigilant monitoring. We don’t just react — we proactively engineer a layered security posture with strong processes and training programs to make passive defenses our first line of attack.

Each day, we leverage a powerful arsenal of industry-trusted security solutions, including, but not limited to, EDR/XDR, MDM, HIDS, NIDS, DLP, or SOAR solutions. We collect threat intelligence information and absorb it in our systems to strengthen our company’s security posture and prevent cybersecurity incidents.

But the real power comes from our engineers, who craft the tools and processes that keep us ahead of the curve. As a Detection (SIEM/SOC) Engineer, you’ll design, plan, and test engineering detection rules, playbooks, and automations, the foundation for our security monitoring and response.

  • And you can check off:

  • >5 years experience in overall IT operations, including >2 years in information security response and investigations or SIEM management;
