Security Analyst

with Linux skills

What We Need

We are looking for a junior engineer who is well-versed in Linux, and has strong security skills. We use CentOS specifically but experience in any Linux flavor is welcome.

In a nutshell, the successful candidate will be helping us maintain customer installations of our product, while using our product to perform threat hunting and security incident alerting on our customers' infrastructure. Our product is based on a highly customized ELK stack.

The successful candidate will also be given the opportunity to participate in - and eventually lead - penetration tests when our customers require them.

The position is Malta-based, however, you will be working remotely. So, we have flexible hours and don't expect a 9-5 mentality. Just hit your targets and you'll fit right in!


P.S. Don't expect "flexible hours" to mean we're going to make you work on weekends or at night.

Who You Are

Ideally you'd have:

  • good Linux administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting skills;

  • experience in ELK;

  • a keen interest in security since this will make up a significant part of your job;

  • experience in Python and Bash is very beneficial.


Your typical day would look like:

  • monitoring customer's setup and troubleshooting problems;

  • threat hunting and writing security reports on their results;

  • maintaining and improving install scripts;

  • helping to improve the product via suggestions, scripting to automate everything, containerising applications, etc.

Who We Are

We are a Maltese IT startup focused on cybersecurity solutions. We develop products in the intersection between machine learning and IT security, a very interesting and evolving field.

We also provide security-related services to our customers, such as red-teaming and pentesting, phishing tests, and supplementing our customer's defence teams.

Our customers include telcos and banks who like to keep us on our toes and definitely keep the job interesting.
