Infrastructure Security Engineer – Excellent Opportunity

About the company:
Specializing in the world’s major securities and derivatives exchanges in the Financial and Capital Markets domain, building smart and fast systems that are crucial to their success. It’s an exciting environment where every second counts. The technology engineers are experts in building, maintaining and supporting real time, trading systems that are fundamental to the success and competitiveness in the current trading environment.

About the role:
Security is pivotal to the success of the organization as a whole; the Security team is crucial in protecting the information assets and technology. You will work as a member of the global Security Team providing operational, engineering and consultation support across the areas of security monitoring, vulnerability management and perimeter/endpoint controls. You will gain exposure to a large and complex network topology, learn how security technologies and practices can be applied to defend against today’s threats by administering, supporting, and implementing technologies that manage and control access, identify vulnerabilities and more. The role will provide you with broad exposure to a wealth of information security technologies including Firewalls, Authentication Encryption Technologies, VPNs, IDS/IPS, Antivirus and Remote Access.

Day to day:

  • You will get to work on a variety of security challenges and technologies across all aspects of our technology footprint. The Security team is tasked, to make sure that our security and risk requirements are followed, even in projects where we are not directly involved in engineering solutions.
  • The Engineers are given the autonomy, flexibility and resources to solve problems creatively and develop the most appropriate solution – this may range from buying/implementing vendor tools, rolling your sleeves up and developing custom solutions from the ground up, adapting open-source solutions or implementing process and policy controls when technology solutions are not available.
  • You don’t have to choose between researching, architecting and implementing solutions. You will have the opportunity to work on problems requiring big picture thinking but will remain hands on with technology as you manage and execute large technical projects to drive growth within the security infrastructure.
  • You will be part of a truly global security program.
  • Continuous growth and opportunity. There is an open learning environment allowing for continued growth, learning and development.


  • 4+ Years’ Experience in Network, systems engineering, architecture or administration and support.
  • Keen interest and evidence of information security experience over any security domain – security engineering, security administration, security analyst and/or penetration testing.
  • Proof of Python, PowerShell, or a comparable scripting language is necessary.
  • Strong grasp of TCP/IP, routing, and switching fundamentals and ability to do basic network administration and/or troubleshooting.
  • Strong grasp of operating systems fundamentals and ability to do basic Windows and/or Linux administration and/or troubleshooting.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or similar technical discipline required

Ryan Wannenburg

I was intrigued by the IT sector as technology is constantly emerging. I learned the ropes so to speak in IT recruitment with Greythorn for 3 years which helped develop a deep understanding of clients needs to secure the best available talent on the market. In 2010, I had an opportunity to join Solas IT Recruitment as a Principal Account Manager in Dublin. Working to my strengths to go above and beyond all expectations for clients and candidates alike, I actively keep myself knowledgeable about emerging and trending technologies especially with the presence of .Net in Ireland. In my spare time (the little I have with 2 young children ) I enjoy F1 and a good BBQ.
