Threat Response Engineer

Who is our client? 

Our client is well known in their industry. They are working with some exceptional objects on a daily basis. To give you some examples: A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book. No joke!

Their mission is to connect passionate enthusiasts with the objects that tell their stories. As Europe’s fastest growing online platform, they help over 10 million people discover new treasures every month. This means they are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, they started in 2008 and have since grown to over 750 people, working across 7 international offices, while maintaining their start-up mentality every step of the way. In December 2020 they received a new €150m investment round and are excited to be growing their teams and business further across the world.

So, what's their security story?

Being the largest online platform for special objects in Europe they strive to provide a secure and trustworthy experience for their customers. Security protects the data of the business through the promotion of security expertise, awareness, and collective oversight.

Some words from Paul, their Security VP

“I joined to share my knowledge and grow the security functions with an exceptional group of people. I’m faced with a unique set of challenges in an ultra modern development environment where there are no traditional infrastructure borders. Building solutions for problems that aren’t restricted by slow processes or “checkboxes” are what make this job fun! The culture is relaxed and I have a great time getting to know the various teams that support selling some of the most sought after items on the planet.”


How do you fit into this story?

Respond to threats from both within their environment and looking in from the outside. Configure Security Monitoring (SIEM) tools to provide more visibility on the platform and corporate IT. This role will primarily focus on the strategic objectives within corporate IT, Legal, and the Security teams own objectives. This is both a hands-on position, as it is a strategic position as well. Best of both worlds! You will contribute to further building the foundation of their security ops. 

Some of the daily duties include response, enrichment, and tuning of alerts generated from our endpoint systems. Contributions to the security awareness program (they hired an internal trainer for their awareness programm) for new and existing employees through the form of training or workshops. Additionally, report on threats mitigated, perform phishing exercises, and facilitate in closing reported security gaps. Must understand basic web application stacks and be comfortable with a duty rotation with the team.

Long term, you’ll provide input adjusting security strategy, adapting to emerging threats, and new technology used at our client. Provide workshops and cross-team training to promote security initiatives throughout the organization.
