An established research and development organisation in the financial sector are looking to add to their Information Security team. We're on the lookout for an experienced, meticulous and technically astute Information Security professional who is eager to join a genuinely world class security function in Central London.

Currently, we're searching for experienced and hands on information security engineers with experience in managing existing enterprise Linux systems and security solutions. You must have the ability to translate complex security concerns into business risks and a willingness to stay up-to-date on the latest security threats, defences and tools.

Candidates should have strong commercial experience with Linux systems and will maybe come from an infrastructure or administration background. Desirable candidates will have scripting experience, preferably in Python or Perl and have a solid understanding of tuning and configuring Auditd, SELinux and IPtables.

Successful candidates will have experience managing enterprise security products and tools such as IPS/IDS, SIEM and Antivirus as well as data leakage prevention and Endpoint Protection on both Linux and Windows platforms.

This is a unique and sought after opportunity to work for an advanced and profitable organisation. You will be working in a challenging, informal and intellectually stimulating environment where engineers are judged by the quality of their work rather than the adherence to fixed working hours. In addition, our partner can offer a competitive salary that is in line with top-flight financial institution expectations.

We need an inquisitive engineer with hunger and energy who possesses a superior passion for information technology and has an underlying desire to analyse situations and find solutions and not just follow instructions.

If you're an experienced Information Security Professional with Linux systems experience who is looking for a challenging and incredibly rewarding opportunity, then please apply now!

Please note that no terminology in this advert is intended to discriminate on the grounds of age, and we confirm that we will gladly accept applications from individuals of any age for this role.
