Security Analyst

Security Analyst

Location: Remote (Central European Time - CET +/- 3hrs) or Amsterdam/Sarajevo office.

Application Deadline: 31st July 2024


With staff across six continents and hubs in Amsterdam, Washington, D.C., and Sarajevo, OCCRP is one of the largest investigative journalism organizations in the world. We are a nonprofit, mission-driven newsroom that partners with other media outlets to publish stories that spur action. OCCRP is also a media development platform that advances investigative reporting worldwide.

Our mission is to spread and strengthen investigative journalism around the world and expose crime and corruption so the public can hold power to account. Our work has four main pillars:

Position Overview

The Information Security team provides the tools, processes, training and support needed to keep information and, most importantly, people safe.

The nature of our work means that we deal with actual attacks and threats daily. State actors and organized crime entities do and will continue to target our staff.

We are looking for an experienced security analyst to join our small team.

This role suits someone who enjoys the technical side of information security analysis and providing guidance to others. You must be able to communicate fluently (C2) in both written and verbal forms in English.

Although remote, you must be within a time zone that is European CET/CEST +/- 3hrs, applications from outside these time zones will be ignored.

We provide support to users globally, so from time to time; there may be a need to talk to someone outside traditional work hours. There is a limited amount of travel associated with this role, including possible attendance at conferences. So the ideal candidate must be willing to travel occasionally (1-4 times a year).

This is a “doing” role, with an expectation that threat hunting, intelligence gathering and forensic analysis are something that you enjoy. The role will also have input into wider Governance, Risk and Compliance activities, including aligning policies and processes with ISO27000 etc.
