Job Description

Meltwater’s Night’s Watch security team is looking for an experienced cybersecurity analyst to join in on the fun!

At Meltwater, we are lucky to not operate as a traditional SOC, but instead a unified group of several different specialist areas focused on proactive and reactive security. Join other Watchers on the Walls as we improve Meltwater’s defenses by analyzing cybersecurity incidents, identifying vulnerabilities, providing detailed, actionable plans, and tracking remediation.

Shielding Meltwater’s infrastructure, application, people, and our data, as well as our customers’ data inside our platform, you don’t need to pledge your life nor die at your post, but we need you on that wall (oh, wait, I crossed references there, oh well, carrying on….).

Alongside other Night’s Watch red, blue, and compliance focused team members, we are seeking an energetic but steady analyst who is excited about finding the signal through all the noise of vulnerabilities, 0-days, and third party data loss announcements. Can you parse that type of information and appropriately identify and classify applicable findings?

As you likely know, issues are possible at any time, and our team members need to be willing to work some non-traditional hours and days to respond to threats.

You will focus on:

  • Continually evolving Meltwater’s attack surface map and tech landscape tracking.

  • Analyze the multi-channel volume of security warnings, vulnerabilities, and incidents from outside Meltwater, and identify, classify and communicate important findings.

  • Investigate large and unstructured data sets, malicious artifacts, and EDR tools to identify trends and anomalies indicative of potential threats.

  • Help improve the team’s technical investigative capabilities.

  • Coordinate and track responses to security threats.

  • Partner with Meltwater teams to suggest remediation paths.

  • Produce intelligence reporting, including findings and analysis to peers and leaders.

  • Run tabletop exercises.

  • Participate in post-mortems and help identify and drive process improvements.

  • Collaborate with interdepartmental teams to help detect new, interesting or unique threats and mitigations based on hunting observations

  • Once you are here, we want your ideas on other focus areas!

Skills & Requirement

  • You possess extensive offensive and defensive security knowledge and skills which are needed to aid with technical understanding and credibility during active security incidents

  • 3+ years experience in threat detection, incident response, and remediation inside a corporation

  • Strong collaboration and communication skills, and likes to have fun despite the (sometimes) high-stress role!

  • Functional understanding of information security in SaaS and Cloud environment

  • Proven technical track record with securing systems, applications and services

  • Prior cybersecurity experience in several of the following:

    • Threat response

    • Intrusion analysis

    • Endpoint incident response (MAC, Linux, and/or Windows)

    • Malware analysis

    • Threat hunting

    • Information security consulting

    • Intelligence

  • Strong expertise in AWS, Linux, Windows, macOS

  • Static and dynamic malware analysis

  • Ability to make technology risk determinations based of threat intelligence analysis

  • Working knowledge of how malicious code operates and how technical vulnerabilities are exploited

  • Fluency in English language
