Senior Security Analyst (Incident Response) - Security Operations Center



IT, Operations
Berlin, Germany
Posted on Tuesday, January 30, 2024
We are on a mission to liberate humanity from all the meaningless time spent managing their purchases and finances, so they can do more of what they love. Klarna was founded on a bold belief: that people are capable of achieving the extraordinary, even when faced with the seemingly impossible. Our journey has been one of continuous learning, facing immense challenges head-on, dedicating countless hours of hard work, and never wavering in our commitment or resilience - and now we are looking for individuals to join us on our journey and contribute to our mission.
Our Engineering Domain is growing and we are looking for new talent to join our Security Operation Center (SOC) team.
If your background is within Managed Security Services, Inhouse SOC or Security Incident Response Teams we will offer you an environment that challenges the status quo and builds something different.
Our dedicated team has two focus areas; Incident Response and Threat Monitoring & Detection, with support from our Cyber Threat Intel partners. The SOC team aims to use the best-of-breed tools for monitoring and detection as well as make the best use of traditional security platforms. With a focus on automation and applying analytics to our signals, we have an objective to be highly efficient in our operations with very few false positives.
Our goal is to improve our capabilities in cyber response, to develop the most effective ways of evaluating and triaging security events and invoking appropriate response plans to events. We work in a continuously evolving business environment, therefore the technologies and processes we use are continuously changing as well. This means that this role requires people with great minds and brilliant ideas able and willing to challenge the traditional ways of operating a SOC function and try out new things

What you'll get to do

  • Provide in-depth cybersecurity analysis and trending of logs, event data, and alerts from a diverse range of log sources
  • Monitor, evaluate and manage security incidents and the response
  • Establish and enhance correlation rules and dashboards to support the team and our internal customers
  • Analyze security attacks and take mitigation measures
  • Develop our strategy for finding innovative ways to monitor events for our infrastructure, customers, partners, and employees
  • Work in a team with investigative spirit, good perception, and judgment of the security landscape
  • Be part of building security capabilities for native cloud-based environments
  • Since threat actors do not keep business hours the job includes on-call duties on a scheduled and rotating basis (approximately every six weeks)
Hybrid working is offered however you need to be located in Berlin to be on-site if required.
We do not offer relocation support for this position.
