Attack Detection / Purple Team Lead
We are looking for a person with the experience and drive to lead our UK Attack Detection consultancy team.
Are you the right fit?
The ideal candidate is somebody who has gained a deep, hands-on understanding of attackers’ Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) coupled with demonstrable experience in scoping, design and technical delivery of purple team engagements. In your career, you will have worked with organizations by simulating attacker actions a client is likely to experience and helping them to design and implement effective strategies and tactics to detect and thwart such attacks.
Is this role for you? If across the years you have developed strong views and passion about how to improve organizations’ ability to detect sophisticated attacks and you are now ready to focus on growing a team and taking our Attack Detection consultancy service to its next evolution then this is the role for you!
What’s the role like?
This is the kind of role that doesn’t come with a strict set of instructions, requirements and targets to adhere to. You’ll discover and shape this role together with the team, taking into account many factors:
the desire for growth and engaging work of our consultants
clients’ specific challenges and appetite for solutions
Think of this as your journey: you have ownership and accountability of every step, but we commit to being there with you as you navigate the challenges that will definitely be there, make decisions, try different approaches out, learn from the mistakes and celebrate the successes.
At the beginning, this journey will involve familiarization with our current Attack Detection service. You’ll likely want to take part to or lead the delivery of some engagements alongside our consultants. This will give you a clear idea of what our current capability and work pipelines look like.
Next, you’ll identify and plan areas of growth and change: this is the chance to leave your mark. You’ll help existing consultants grow their skills, you’ll hire new team members, and you’ll ultimately work together with the team to define a direction of growth for the Attack Detection service as a whole.
Who will you work with?
At WithSecure you won’t work FOR a boss, neither will you have subordinates who work FOR you. You’ll work TOGETHER with and contribute to recruit into a passionate and dedicated team of consultants, for which cyber security is not just a job. 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.
