Netcraft is the global leader in cybercrime detection and disruption. We are a trusted partner for three of the four largest companies in the world, twelve of the fifty largest banks, and five of the world’s largest country governments. We’ve blocked almost 200 million malicious sites and perform takedowns against one-third of the world’s phishing sites. Our purpose, passion and expertise are focused on one thing: protecting the world from cybercrime.

We carry that passion into our workplace too. Our people are highly talented and everyone is genuinely valued for their unique contributions. That’s one of the many reasons Netcraft is a great place to work. From social events to wellness and recognition, we’ve got you covered.

  • Helping to test and improve our incident response policies and procedures.

The reward package:

As you might expect for such an integral role, the reward package will be generous, including:

  • An attractive starting base salary, reviewed annually

  • Two days paid Volunteering Leave per year
  • Enhanced family leave provisions
  • Tax efficient cycle to work scheme
  • An inclusive culture where you’ll feel genuinely valued and supported

  • Varied and in-depth experience as a Security/InfoSec Engineer, ideally within a SaaS environment
  • Experience with AWS security, Microsoft Defender, mobile device management, SIEM
  • Familiarity with cloud security, architecting scalable and secure systems, monitoring and reporting tools
  • Ability to analyse and make considered decisions, balancing the need for security against the need for people to get things done!

Bonus points if you have:
