Reports To: Director of Threat Operations Center 

Location: Remote/United Kingdom - This position has the flexibility to condense the work week, as long as hours include a full day Saturday and Sunday.

Compensation Range: Base salary up to £38,000 plus bonus and equity 

What We Do:

Founded in 2015 by former NSA cyber operators, Huntress was built on a simple premise: to force hackers to earn every inch of their access.

Today’s cyber-attacks aren’t limited to large organizations with the security tools that can ward off threats. Hackers don't discriminate and will find a way to penetrate any vulnerability in any size business.  Huntress enables IT providers and resellers to stop hidden threats that sneak past preventive security tools. 

Through a combination of expert human threat hunters, a comprehensive platform, and a desire to make the world a safer place, we’re working to deliver cybersecurity to the 99%—those small to midsize businesses that make up the backbone of our economy. 

Join the hunt and help us stop hackers in their tracks!

What You’ll Do:

The Huntress ThreatOps team has the unique honor to wake up every morning knowing we’re going to make hackers regret targeting our partners and customers. As a ThreatOps Analyst we’re looking for someone who wants to be at the frontlines countering these constantly evolving threats. Experience with large scale data categorization and classification, host-based threat hunting, malware analysis, and incident response are additional ways to differentiate yourself.

We defend over 1 million endpoints across 58,000+ mid-sized and small business customers and that number continues to grow each month. Considering this market’s tighter budget, it’s not financially possible to dedicate human analysts to each client. The ThreatOps team addresses this challenge head-on by using highly automated efficiencies—augmented by our Threat Analysts operating across the globe—that make intruders earn every inch of their access. 

Are you ready for the challenge?

Responsibilities:

  • Analyze data for potential threats, adding human perspective to our automation
  • Dig into newly identified malware to provide customers with the appropriate details to remediate and leverage the knowledge gained for future automation
  • Help customers by responding to support tickets related to security incidents, occasionally aiding with containment and remediation
  • Continually grow your knowledge of internal procedures, the Huntress product, the threat landscape, and customer environments
  • Contribute to our collaboratively mentored team (we're all here to make each other better!)
