Senior Security Operations Specialist


At Deliveroo, it is our mission to build the definitive food company. In order to do that, we’re building a company where everyone can belong, grow and do the best work of their lives. 

As a Senior Security Operations Specialist you’ll be part of a growing Security Operations team who are focused on detecting attacks against a backdrop of an ever-advancing cyber threat landscape with automation at the heart of everything we do. You’ll be responsible for building and maturing our threat detection capabilities and provide support to our incident response, forensics and threat intelligence processes spanning the breadth of the cyber kill chain. While we have some practices in place, you’ll need to design and mature processes and technology requirements to best support our Security maturity journey.

The role is a unique opportunity to directly influence the overall Security Operations strategy where you can harness our existing process and technology investments and bring new ways of working to help us protect our employees, customers, riders and restaurants. As we continue to grow our business, your specialist capabilities will play a key part in our story.


What you’ll be doing

  • Manage and maintain an industry-leading SIEM platform to maximise our threat detection capability, ensuring key business systems are monitored in line with strategic initiatives
  • Guide the design, development and review of threat-detection use-cases to identify suspicious activity across a cloud-centric environment
  • Work with Security and Engineering stakeholders to optimise existing technology to identify current security threats from the cyber threat landscape
  • Develop orchestration and automation across security platforms to support security incident response processes
  • Work closely with security incident responders to proactively hunt for threats across the organisation
  • Support the security incident response process, including the analysis of detections and implement continuous improvement measures
  • Keep up to date with current security trends, advisories, publications and security research across the threat landscape



  • Demonstrable hands-on experience managing and configuring SOC/SIEM security platforms
  • Hands-on experience writing complex Splunk and SQL queries
  • Proven experience building threat detection capabilities in a cloud-centric, fast-moving organisation
  • Practical experience designing, configuring and managing defensive security solutions
  • Natural leadership with experience in technical project management
  • Demonstrable experience of system administration, particularly across Linux
  • Detailed knowledge of optimal cloud security configurations, particularly across AWS
  • Demonstrable coding experience, with familiarity across multiple languages
  • Exceptional communication skills and a collaborative, knowledge-sharing mindset
  • Working knowledge of security compliance standards, e.g. ISO27001, GDPR and PCI-DSS

Preferred, but not required

  • Understanding of IAM cloud security principles 
  • Experience with web and mobile-app offensive security techniques
  • Experience in a DevOps environment with familiarity of CI/CD pipelines
  • Hands-on experience with container technologies and orchestration services
  • Knowledge of cloud security data encryption standards and principles


Why Deliveroo?

Our mission is to be the definitive food company. We are transforming the way the world eats by making food more convenient and accessible. We give people the opportunity to eat what they want, when and where they want it.

We are a technology-driven company at the forefront of the most rapidly expanding industry in the world. We are still a small team, making a very large impact, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, value autonomy and ownership, and we are always looking for new ideas.


Workplace & Diversity

At Deliveroo we know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth and relocation.

We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing startups in an incredibly exciting space.
