Red Team Operator

Location : London

G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm. We hire the brightest minds in the world to tackle some of the biggest questions in finance. We pair this expertise with machine learning, big data, and some of the most advanced technology available to predict movements in financial markets.

The role

We are seeking a talented Red Team Operator to join the Adversary Emulation (AE) team, which sits as part of the Security Assurance (SA) group.

While the SA group is responsible for providing security assessments directly to the Board, it is the AE team that develops innovative methods to conduct practical attacks via Red and Purple Team engagements.

As a Red Team Operator within the AE team, you will be responsible for:

  • Executing internal and external Red and Purple team engagements
  • Developing and documenting tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs)
  • Improving the general capabilities of the team
  • Writing technical and executive level reports after each engagement

You will work on long-running operations (up to three months and sometimes longer), alongside a significant preparation phase, where you will be expected to perform in-depth research and develop novel attack paths for the operation.

The targets for these operations will involve a wide-range of technologies, including cutting-edge DevOps systems, and you will need to learn how they are deployed, protected and used. Taking this knowledge, you will develop effective attacks against these systems where you will emulate a variety of internal and external threat actors during operations.

As a Red Team Operator, you will have the opportunity to lead operations and to shape the future of operations conducted by the team.

We are committed to developing our team, as well as learning from other team members, you will have the opportunity to undertake regular external training, and mentor others.

Who are we looking for?

You will have a strong background in information security with demonstrable practical experience in Red and Purple Team operations.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Strong understanding of network fundamentals
  • Strong understanding of Windows and Linux operating systems
  • The ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Demonstrable ability to develop scripts in common languages, for example Python, Ruby or VBA
  • Offensive Security certification (such as OSCP, OSCE) or CREST (such as CRT, CCT)

The following skills would also be beneficial:

  • Working knowledge of DevOps practices and Cloud technologies
  • Knowledge of reverse engineering techniques and procedures
  • Experience programming in C/C++, C#, Assembly
  • Experience with commercial and open-source C2 frameworks (such as Cobalt Strike, Covenant, )

Why should you apply?

  • Highly competitive compensation plus annual discretionary bonus
  • Lunch provided (via Just Eat for Business) and dedicated barista bar
  • 30 days’ annual leave
  • 9% company pension contributions
  • Informal dress code and excellent work/life balance
