We are looking for an experienced Security Researcher with a focus on malware, YARA, and indicators of compromise (IOCs). The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting in-depth analysis of malware samples, developing and refining detection methods using YARA rules, and identifying and developing IOCs to support threat hunting and incident response activities. The job duties include strong research and analysis skills, including the understanding of malware analysis, reverse engineering, defence evasion techniques, and engineering detection capabilities. The role involves writing software tools for internal use, using a variety of scripting or programming languages. The security researcher will work closely with data intelligence analysts to leverage machine learning that predicts when a file that has undergone CDR processing can predict the existence of malicious code. The role will help demonstrate and prove CDR's efficacy in preventing malware from crossing a trust boundary but also widen the commercial offering of Glasswall by helping to identify malware analysis as a service to aggregators of threat information.
We didn't start out as a traditional security product. In the beginning, Glasswall was one of only two file sanitisation filters in the US Intelligence Community's highly classified networks. We are rated #1 by the National Security Agency. We designed Glasswall CDR to protect businesses against the most advanced file-based threats. Today, we're trusted by commercial and government organisations around the world.
At Glasswall, we believe that diversity of people and thought are central to our purpose. We are committed to making Glasswall a company attractive to people of many different backgrounds. This includes diversity in every sense of the word: those with different backgrounds, ages, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ways of thinking and those with disabilities or neurodivergent conditions. We therefore welcome and encourage applications from everyone, including those from groups that are under-represented in our workforce.
One of our corporate objectives is to ensure that our employees highly rate the organisational health of the firm. We believe this is only possible if we promote a culture of inclusion and respect across our business. Each quarter we survey employees on a range of questions relating to our organisational health. This holds a mirror-up to a business and ensures we can focus on where we need to improve.
We have an Organisational Health Committee chaired by a non-executive position. The panel has been formed to guide the leadership in taking positive action that supports a good work-life balance, family-friendly relations and to be inviting to a diverse range of potential employees.
We also have a Women in Technology Group formed to promote balance in how we communicate with, promote, encourage, and support people across our business.
Beneficial knowledge and experience
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfilment. We offer flexible working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
Salary and Benefits
A successful candidate will live in the United Kingdom and is comfortable working from home, with some meetings being held in the London office.
We encourage you to apply even if your experience is not a 100% match with the position. We are looking for someone with relevant skills and experience, not a checklist that exactly matches the job description. We want to help you grow, and in return, you help us grow into a stronger, more inclusive organisation.
Glasswall is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or other legally protected status.
