Posted on Wednesday, July 26, 2023

We are looking for a passionate Information Security Analyst with some work experience to join our growing team. The right person will contribute to create an effective security operations center. You monitor our assets, act upon alerts whenever required, and you on the lookout for better ways to secure our network and protect us against ever-increasing and emerging threats.

Typical Information Security Analyst’s responsibilities include monitoring, incident handling, including investigation, containment, eradication and ultimately guiding the process from a recovery status back to normal operations. For this you use our existing tooling, but it is important that take ownership and inform the team where improvements in our existing tooling are possible.

One of our company values: Don’t Operate, Automate!

You will also be(come) the focal point in our DDOS-investigations. In such investigations we find the victims and educate them on how they can better protect themselves. By doing so, we contribute to a better and cleaner internet, something that is important to

The Security & Compliance team interacts with every department in the company, so in your job as Security Analyst, you will be working with every internal team, but also with some of our clients and other external stakeholders, like suppliers, contractors, and government organizations (e.g., Dutch CSIRT-DSP).

With your existing experience you understand that a Security Analyst in a small team is not your typical nine-to-five job and it may happen that you work at irregular hours. You have effective communication skills, verbal and in writing! While we are a Dutch company, English is another language that is predominantly present.

At we care about our employees and it a healthy work-life balance is important to us, so together with your manager you monitor that balance, typically in your one-2-one’s with your manager. At we also like to organize various events and the occasional outing, whether it is our quarterly physical All-Hands meeting at a location, a black-tie event, or a Christmas party, you have plenty of opportunities to see your colleagues in a different setting. Some colleagues also go out, cycle to work together, meet after work hours for a run or even go to a Padel-court (nearby the Rivium office) during lunch! In short, enough events to look forward to!
