Job Title: Threat Intelligence Researcher - Lead or Principal

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Adversaries make mistakes and you know how to use these to your advantage.

We have moved beyond the traditional FUD approach of security and depend on data for analysis. Rumours and speculation don’t protect our customers, and that’s something we take very seriously. Put simply: data or it didn’t happen. However, data is all well and good, but it’s just sitting there doing nothing. Without intelligence and interpretation, we’re just filling up disks. While the storage companies are more than happy to sell us petabytes of spindles, we are driven to make something of this data. We need someone to join our team that lives, breathes, eats, and sleeps hunting for bad things in said data.

The ideal candidate will be a star at digging through a digital haystack to identify targeted attack activity. Through proactive investigations you’ll construct, test, and refine theories in a methodical manner across disparate environments. You’ll be an expert specifically in data analysis at scale, host based analysis or memory forensics. You’ll feel comfortable discussing adversaries and their tools, techniques and procedures as well as how applicable those are to our environment. has one of the best Information Security teams in the world and growing this piece of the business is a top priority! Our Information Security teams work hand in hand with the business to ensure the highest security around all of our applications. With our focus on Trust, we collect terabytes per day of interesting security data. The Security Researcher (hunter) will help to identify malicious activity that conventional security control’s can’t and determine courses of action to help protect our customers from all types of threats. The threat landscape has changed from ‘if’ to ‘when,’ and we’re building a team that lives in this new reality.

Required skills:

  • You have first hand knowledge of how advanced adversaries operate and demonstrable experience in digging through networks to find them.

  • Strong experience with real world adversarial tooling such as Empire and Cobalt Strike.

  • A capable communicator, you are able to engage others in the business to drive change based on your findings through control recommendations and presentations.

  • A creative mindset and a desire to challenge the status quo, you keep your eye on the end goal whilst considering different paths to get there.

  • Data at scale excites you and other people can read your code (no, really).

  • Bash, Python or even Ruby.. you know how to script up a solution to “that problem” in an efficient and repeatable manner.

  • You like using computers to solve repetitive tasks, leaving humans to spend time performing the analysis which actually requires their attention.

  • Experience with hunting/IR tools used for host and network analysis.

  • Strong networking skills with sound knowledge of routing and supporting services such as DNS.

  • The ability to operate in an autonomous manner, driving the delivery of projects and deliverables with minimal oversight.

  • You’re a team player and thrive on your interactions with others, taking pride in collective success.

  • Strong communication skills, both written and oral.

  • The ability to work as a part of a globally distributed team, contributing to discussions via a video call or chat room.

Desired skills:

  • Ideally, you’ve done all of the above at scale. We’re not a startup.

  • Experience in an offensive security function.

  • BS/MS in Computer Science or commensurate experience.

  •, and Heroku experience (hey, we like our own Champagne).
