F-Secure delivers research-led cyber security to defend organizations, society and people from real-world attacks and build resilience into their approach. Our people are a mix of technical and creative experts – diverse, talented, and passionate people – working tirelessly to help us advance the industry with new ways of thinking. They lead their own development, in and out of the office. They call the shots when it comes to building a place to call home in our organization.

F-Secure is world renowned for its End Point Protection solutions – providing preventative and proactive protection to tens of millions of computer and smart devices globally. Over the past few years, the company has successfully entered new markets and has increased its portfolio of solutions to include Cyber Consulting and Managed Detection and Response Solutions.

A component of our Solutions business provides a world leading managed service, F-Secure Countercept, that detects and responds to cyber-attacks on behalf of our clients using a strong combination of people, process and technology. Much of the technology is designed and built in house by the F-Secure engineering team specifically to support the managed service or as leveraged products that F-Secure also provides to the wider market.

The Solutions unit comprises several teams, one of which is the Detection & Response Team (DRT) who uncover adversaries on our client’s networks and contain attacks using their Incident Response skill, the research team who uncover new and emerging offensive and defensive techniques, and the Technical Operations team who maintain and develop the attack detection infrastructure to ensure it remains at the bleeding edge.

What we need…

F-Secure Countercept are looking for a Senior Threat Hunter to join our dynamic and talented UK DRT. As a senior you will be responsible for all areas of service delivery, continuous improvement and team development.

The candidate needs a strong technical background in defensive security who can apply their skills to the unique Threat Hunting mindset used to deliver F-Secure Countercept’s attack detection capability.

We are looking for a candidate with leadership and line management skills, bundles of enthusiasm and the desire to combat adversaries targeting our customers’ networks

As a Senior Threat Hunter here are a selection of the tasks you would carry out:

  • Act as an escalation point for all technical investigations
  • Create the vision to further improve our technical & service offering
  • Proactively investigate host, network and log-based security events
  • Manage incidents from detection to resolution
  • Liaise with other regional team leads to ensure consistent service delivery
  • Advanced Host, Network, and Memory Forensics
  • Research new attack techniques to uncover innovative detection capabilities

Who we think will be a great fit…

If any of these points pique your interest, you will seamlessly integrate into the team and succeed:

  • You have real-world experience responding to attacks of all levels, from script kiddies to nation states, and relish sharing this experience and knowledge with the rest of the team and the industry at large.
  • You love nothing more than reading about attacker techniques and are keen to thwart and respond to the ever-evolving threats they present to our clients.
  • You are both using and developing cutting edge tools to aid detection and response and are keen to keep up with the latest industry developments.
  • The challenge of leading a team and helping more junior team members develop enthuses you.

The F-Secure Countercept platform is a dynamic and rapidly evolving product, which is heavily research led. The ideal candidate would be able to contribute to enhancing the capability of the service, whether through direct development, research activities or media opportunities.

The ideal candidate should also have solid experience in both offensive and defensive security areas, either penetration testing, incident response or ideally a mixture of both.

As a successful Senior Threat Hunter you will demonstrate:

  • Strong leadership & managerial skills
  • Incident coordination capabilities
  • Excellent communication skills when dealing with customers and team members
  • Strong understanding of Windows and Linux internals
  • Skillset covering both offensive and defensive security
  • Experience with modern offensive techniques and APT TTP's.
  • Experience with advanced attack detection and incident response

Our four promises to you…

  • Freedom – you will have the opportunity to define new ways of working how we engage with our customers, and how product value gets represented
  • You will work together with experienced and enthusiastic colleagues, and within F-Secure you'll find some of the best minds in the cyber security industry
  • Your work will be clearly visible and recognised – all over the world and across our business units
  • You can rely on the support from the entire F-Secure leadership including our top executives
