We are looking for a skilled Senior Security Engineer to protect our Kingdom and join our security team in Barcelona.

You will identify and respond to security alerts and issues in a timely and methodical manner. You will also engage in security knowledge sharing within the team and across the company.

Skills To Create Thrills

  • You have a self- starter attitude so you’re able to take direction and complete tasks on your own while working in a team. Other skills include:

  • BS in computer science or related field or equivalent experience.

  • Solid technical background, including experience doing security incident response and security monitoring and administration ideally as part of a CSIRT or SOC.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills. Fluent in English.

Tasty Bonus Skills

  • Experience in patch management and vulnerability scanning.

  • Experience in cloud security in GCP and/or any other similar platforms such as AWS or Azure.

  • It’s also great if you maintain your own open source security project or have contributed to a project.

  • Security certifications such as CISSP, SANS GCIH, GCIA, GCFA, GCFE or cloud related, would be a major plus, but skills in the right areas are just as helpful.
