Countercept is a division of MWR InfoSecurity that specialises in attack detection and response. We offer a Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service, with a focus on defending highly targeted organisations against sophisticated attacks. The Research & Development team is responsible for creating a proprietary technology stack used by our teams to hunt for and contain adversaries before they reach their objective.
We are looking for a skilled Python developer to work on a large data-centric platform. In this role you will be responsible for advancing Countercept’s backend services. These services live in a microservices architecture and deal with large volumes of attack detection data every day. We are looking for team members that have an interest in creating cutting edge RESTful APIs that are reliable, scalable and performant.
Training opportunities and international travel will be available to help improve skills where required. We are seeking someone who is not scared of new challenges and knows how to work hard whilst maintaining a fun and friendly attitude. The ideal candidate enjoys working in a team with a culture of learning and mutual respect; where you can bring new ideas to the table and have them heard.
We don’t want to give our developers requirements; we want them to solve problems.
