Are you the responsible rebel we are looking for?

Be polite, be courteous, show professionalism and have a plan to kill everyone in the room.

Hunt & Hackett helps European companies prevent, detect and respond to today’s most advanced adversaries, safeguarding them against cyberthreats and espionage. We don’t stir a bit into security strategies. Our talented team of responsible rebels shakes them up to build, operate and maintain digital immune systems for our customers to outsmart their digital adversaries.

To extend our multidisciplinary team we are now hiring incident responders. Do you love the excitement of tracking a threat actor in an enterprise network. Do you avail over the  courtesy to make our customers feel at ease and in control when experiencing a cyber incident? Do you belong to the most talented group of responders in the industry – or is this where you plan to be soon? Then Hunt & Hackett might be your next best step. 


Incident response at Hunt & Hackett

As an incident responder you are the main point of contact for the customer. Together with our multidisciplinary team (red teamers, malware analysts and intrusion detection analysts) you are responsible for the technical analysis and triage on a variety of data sources and end points. Utilizing a range of technologies and tools you’ll look for the breadcrumbs, to ultimately find the root cause. Your eye for detail is better than that of the threat actor. And you are smarter than adversary: if a tool doesn’t exist, you develop one. Last but not least, you understand that the job is not done after you have mapped out the threats. You are capable of translating the findings into well written reports for different audiences, from IT administrator to board member.


Working 9 to 5

Do we need to tell you that threat actors don’t work from 9 to 5? If yes, don’t apply. At Hunt & Hackett we provide a 24/7 incident response service for our customers. And because it’s your role to get back to ‘business as usual’, you’ll sometimes have to work during the evenings and weekends. Therefore, flexibility is not just important, it’s a key requirement.

  • Preferably has >3 years of IR, or enterprise IT admin experience

  • Avails over investigative skills: filesystem-, log-, network-, and malware analysis

  • Is flexible with regards to working hours

  • Can translate complex concepts into understandable language for our customers

  • Has the skills to develop his/her own tools in i.e. Python

  • Is a conceptual thinker and likes to build big data (IR solutions)

We encourage candidates to reach out and apply, even if you believe you may not meet all the requirements. At Hunt & Hackett, we look at the individual's potential for growth and we are happy to help you build the necessary skills along the way.


What is your wish list? As a minimum, Hunt & Hackett offers you

  • A unique culture of ‘responsible rebellion’ where you can learn from the best to get the most out of yourself

  • The opportunity to work with Europe’s leading companies

  • A fair compensation scheme with plenty of holidays and a scheme for overtime

  • The tools you need to get the job done


A culture of ‘responsible rebellion’

Only (very) talented, multidisciplinary teams of threat hunters, intelligence analysts, reverse engineers, data scientists, developers and hackers are able to outsmart the increasingly professional community of cyber attackers. We pride ourselves as a force for the good and as such we think and act as responsible rebels. We are not ‘just another security company’, and our people are not ‘just employees’. Everyone at Hunt & Hackett wants to be the best in their field and focusses at delivering next-gen levels of service. This means that we:


  • Push the envelope. Everyone at our teams takes the responsibility to make our work better every day, by being creative to color outside of the lines if needed.​

  • Help you to become the best version of yourself. We bring together the best minds in the field, to inspire each other and to learn from each other. Personal development and growth are important to us and our customers.

  • Build mission driven teams. We believe in the power of small teams who can focus on strategic tasks, not on repetitive work that can be automated. It’s up to you to make this happen.

  • Believe that God is in the details​. Tiny details can have a huge impact, especially in security. This is why we champion tradecraft. We are system thinkers that oversee the big picture but who are simultaneously obsessive about the details

  • Are Responsible Rebels. We are polite. We are courteous. We show professionalism. Yet we have a plan to kill everyone in the room.
