Are you the responsible rebel we are looking for?

The most dangerous person is the one who listens, thinks and observes.

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 a MDR Implementation engineer. Do you like helping customers to become more secure, while doing your thing on the command line? Does working with all kinds of infrastructure technology and onboarding this into our Security Operations Center (SOC) give you euphoria? Does infrastructure as code and automating the boring manual stuff of a process make your clock tick? Do you belong to the most talented group of MDR Implementation Engineers in the industry – or is this where you plan to be? Then Hunt & Hackett might be the best next step in your career.


MDR Implementation Engineer at Hunt & Hackett

Do you know this ecstatic emotion, when unboxing your latest cool gadget or the experience of a seamless process from ordering to actually being able to use it in time? That is what we like to achieve for our new managed detection and response service customers. They have just signed up for our service and it is your responsibility to onboard them and giving them this same ecstatic feeling that their security posture is about to change. You are technically responsible from beginning to end for this process. We want you foremost to be technically savvy and understand company networks and not necessarily want you to be the project manager type. If you have project management skills that would be magnificent, but if you haven’t that’s no problem at all. 

As an MDR Implementation Engineer you are the bridge between the technology and the customer and are actively working in making those customers more secure. You help them - in a secure fashion - to get their logs out of their infrastructure, to implement network sensors and support the customer in rolling out EDR. Once you are done, you validate whether we receive the right data so that the SOC can deploy our detection logic and start detecting bad stuff. And if data comes in blobby, you either improve the parser, or you write one yourself . The work you do can be a bit unstructured occasionally, and although we try to standardize things, there will always be new things and new situations. Therefore, we require you to be inquisitive and not shying away from unknowns. 

Microsoft 365, endpoint management, EDR, SIEM, IDS, firewalls, proxies, load balancers, DNS/DHCP servers are common terms for you and working with them gives you warm and fuzzy feelings. Furthermore, you have experience with networking, working with Unix operating systems, but you also have experience with scripting and Git. Although you like to spend a fair share of time working with technologies, the thing that gets you up in the morning as well, is automating processes since you hate doing stuff manually. We don’t expect you to be a full DevOps engineer, but you know your way around in Python when things need to get automated. Lastly, in the time you are not helping customers, you might want to chip in during incident response cases, in the SOC, or help out the SRE/ DevOps team by further developing the platform as code.

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.
