* Must be willing to participate in the on- call rotation.

* Must be willing to do occasional travelling.

* Excellent written and verbal communication skills. Fluent in English.

Bonus points

Experience in cloud security in AWS and/or GCP is a big plus.

* Experience performing purple team and/or table top exercises and threat hunting activities.

* It’s also great if you maintain your own open source security project or have contributed to a project.

* Security certifications such as CISSP, SANS GCIH, GCIA, GCFA, GCFE or cloud related, would be a major plus, but skills in the right areas are just as beneficial.
