Countercept is currently looking for a Junior Threat Hunter with a background in threat hunting, digital forensics, attack detection or penetration testing. The successful candidate will work within the ‘Countercept’ division of MWR, with a group of established threat hunters, focused on carrying out, supporting and resolving day to day investigation of events generated by the Countercept attack detection service for our clients.
What we need…
The 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 had exposure or experience in either offensive or defensive security, either penetration testing, incident response or ideally a mixture of both.
The candidate should be highly motivated, eager to learn and not afraid to get stuck-in. Being able to work autonomously as well as part of a team is essential. The ability to effectively triage and prioritise rapidly evolving incidents, utilising a team of threat hunters and IR practitioners to support, is crucial.
The Countercept service will require threat hunters to monitor the target networks 24/7, 365. Although late night hours will be covered by distributing analysis between MWR's UK and Singapore offices, hunters may expect to work on a rotational basis with other analysts to cover evenings and weekend hours.
The main responsibilities include:

Over 1,600 amazing colleagues in 25 countries
Possibility to protect the world
Work with best of class experts who care
Relaxed, open and fun working environment
