We are the trusted security provider to financial services, top retail brands, and transportation partners. We have experienced rapid growth and it’s showing no signs of slowing down as we continue to expand into new markets and customers.

We have an opportunity for an experienced Security Engineer who has some exposure to EndPoint Detection and Response to join us from either our Edinburgh or London (Tower Hill) offices. This individual will support the development and delivery of our Endpoint Detection & Response services as they will be trained in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE). We’re happy to discuss the amount of time a candidate is in the office so we can consider candidates based out of other locations in the UK but occasional travel may be required.

  • Proven technical knowledge with a range of cyber security technologies (experience of SIEM technologies is preferred – Splunk/Humio/Azure Sentinel)
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • A continuous improvement mind-set with a constant desire to improve Adarma’s and our client’s operations
