  • Threat Hunting: Lead intelligence-based threat hunts to uncover anomalous behaviour in our estate that is representative of the security threats most relevant to Tesco.
  • Detection Engineering: Use your observations from security incidents, threat hunts, and reporting about relevant security threats to contribute to our internal detection engineering programme.

You will need

  • 4+ years of experience working in the IT Security industry.
  • Experience with responding to security incidents in large scale corporate on-premises and public cloud environments (preferably Microsoft Azure).
  • Experience with forensic analysis on Windows, MacOS, and Unix operating systems.

  • Ability to think critically and lead technical investigations.
  • Ability to handle high pressure situations in a calm, productive, and professional manner.
