Prague, Czechia
Posted on Tuesday, March 14, 2023

We are currently seeking a Senior Cyber Security Engineer to join our team and play a crucial role in enhancing our security posture. In this role, you will be responsible for helping us tackle various security challenges, including improving the security of our core product application and infrastructure, streamlining our log management and alerting system, and strengthening our incident response capabilities. Your expertise and commitment to security will be instrumental in ensuring the protection of our assets and maintaining the trust of our customers.

In this role, you will be working in a team of 4 (2 IT, 2 security), and reporting directly to Zuzana Pechová, who is also a very active member of the security community in the Czech Republic.

Rossum’s vision is a world that builds rather than types. We leverage state-of-art AI to eliminate useless paperwork and make the whole world go faster. If you want to know more about the company and how we are making B2B communication frictionless, you’ll find detailed information at the bottom of the job description.

The role

As a security engineer you’ll be responsible for:

  • System administration of our log management system and adding new log sources from various SaaS platforms, creating or customizing security alerts
  • Creation and support of small helper tools to ease up daily team operations
  • Incident response based on alerts and long-term remediation of discovered findings
To be slightly more specific, you'll be taking complete care of a small log management/SIEM platform based on Elastic Stack with supporting tools for continuous data ingestion which gets its data from a variety of SaaS and endpoint tools and AWS posture/threat intelligence platform. We are still a small company and so are the data amounts we're dealing with, so it's feasible to be a kind of "security full-stack" person as you'll be both managing and using the security systems.

You should apply if

  • You have a background in Linux system administration and scripting (preferably in Python)
  • You have experience with log management and security monitoring systems - as an admin (hence the Linux system administration background) and as a security analyst (to be able to understand the logs, set up security alerts, and solve them)
  • You are reasonably good at planning, coordinating, and delivering short-term cross-team security improvements and/or remediation activities
  • You have a wide range of general knowledge about good security practices - like e-mail security setup, basic networking, access rights management, and more (as it will help with maintaining the alert rules and proceeding with remediations)
  • You like to help others and also are not afraid to ask for help for yourself
  • You’re a geek (this is not mandatory, but it helps 🙂)

What we offer

We are building a hyper-growth SaaS startup following the best Silicon Valley practices in Prague.

  • Working with self-driven people who love what they do and continuously try to learn how to do it better
  • We designed the Employee Stock Option Plan as the fairest in Prague.
  • Enjoyable working environment in a very diverse team (27+ nationalities).
  • 5 weeks of vacation, flexible working hours, and home office setup.
  • Tasty snacks & the best coffee and tea in Prague.
  • Multisport card to get your workout at any of 2,700 places in Czechia.
