Security Engineer - SOC


Applications have closed

Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 13 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.

Current banking systems don’t let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.

So, we’re building a new one.

And, we’re looking for a Security Engineer with focus on Incident Response to join our Security Operations team in Tallinn or London.

For our customers, using Wise should feel as simple as sending a text message. Yet behind our app and website lies a complex, one-of-a-kind engine of currencies and routes that’s being designed, built and powered by our talented teams in cities around the world. With new capabilities being built every day, there’s still a lot to figure out, and we can’t do it alone. 

This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Wise’s mission, grow as a security engineer and help save millions more people money.  

The Security Operations Team is responsible for incident response and technical security concerns. We work together with teams to minimise the amount of vulnerabilities introduced into Wise products and infrastructure. We act as the first line of defence for attacks aimed against us internally or externally. 

Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the Security Operations Team:

  • Help us detect, analyse and mitigate attacks or abuses across the company. You’ll be acting as a 1st line Security Engineer in SOC
  • You will be triaging incoming requests and alerts and help to keep our queues under control
  • You will be improving and developing Wise security monitoring solutions and helping relevant teams to solve problematic controls

  • Basic understanding of Windows and Linux internals

  • Experience with vulnerability scanning solutions and understanding the difference
  • You have worked with different SIEM-s (like Elasticsearch or similar) and understand what happens under the hood

Some extra skills that would be great:
