Security Detection and Monitoring Engineer

The Security Team is responsible for detecting and responding to threats, developing and maintaining security controls, designing and implementing strategies to secure our payment platform, and building security culture throughout the company.

As a driven and pro-active Security Detection and Monitoring Engineer you will focus on Security Operations, Threat Hunting, Threat detection and Incident Response. You will develop and maintain security solutions to improve detection capabilities, automate difficult manual tasks and investigate security incidents. In short, we want you to detect everything worth detecting, and then deal with it.


How do we do that?

  • Collaborating: To create meaningful detections and to respond to triggered alerts you will need to collaborate with other members of the security, product, development and infrastructure teams;
  • Developing our very own tool: To overcome vendor limitations and remain flexible, we decided to build our own event monitoring tool. You will be able to add new detection logic with a bit of Python and your bright ideas. If you are also an experienced Python developer you will be able to maintain and expand the tool itself;
  • Using our very own tool: we do not believe in the typical task segregation of traditional SOCs, instead all our security engineers also act as security analysts and deal with the alerts triggered by the monitoring system. Tell us why in your motivation letter!

  • Develop new solutions to hunt, detect and deal with threats;
  • Create scalable and actionable detection logic for emerging threats;
  • Save your colleague’s time and brainpower through automation;

  • Explore and incorporate new security tools, opportunity to contribute to open source community;
  • Be involved in the evaluation of security operations and/or procedures to enhance productivity and effectiveness of the team
