Why is this role hard to recruit for?
My client is looking for a Network Security Team Lead and someone who is still very hands-on with Palo Alto and/or Cisco (ideally Cisco ISE). I personally see this position as more of a tech lead than management as my client is interested in your deep technical skills, however, you will be managing two full-time Network Security Analysts and two contractors. 60% technical and 40% leadership is how I see it, with a big focus on delivering projects from a technical perspective. This split is the reason it’s a tough role to recruit for. So if you are reading this and I am describing you, please apply, and let’s start a conversation today.
My client sits at the top when it comes to financial trading with emerging and innovative technology imperative to their success. If you have worked in financial services before, you will already know the rewards of working in the space, if you haven’t then you are in for a treat as you will be surrounded by some of the brightest engineers in the industry with a CISO who is known for upskilling engineering teams.
What I love about this organization is their passion for learning and development, giving their employees the tools and training to really succeed. For example, they would really like to hire a Network Security Lead who already knows automation and writes scripts using Python, although any language is fine. However, if you don’t have these skills but can demonstrate the right attitude and determination they will put you through the relevant courses and certifications, who else can say that?
The environment is very Palo Alto, especially for policy decisions and Cisco ISE for VPN connectivity and firewalls. Deep technical experience for both would be great.
If you are looking to join a fast-paced technical environment with one of the world’s leading trading firms, this is for you. They are offering the role remote with some travel to their HQ a couple of times per year.
Salary and bonus will beat your expectations.
This is a fully remote position
