At Deliveroo, our mission is to build the definitive food company. In order to do that, we’re building a company where everyone can belong, grow and do the best work of their lives.

As a Senior Security Incident Response Specialist you will lead the response to security incidents and privacy issues, ensuring threats are fully investigated, contained and remediated. You’ll be part of a Security Operations & Incident Response team who are focused on detecting attacks against a backdrop of an ever-advancing cyber threat landscape with automation at the heart of everything we do.

The role is a unique opportunity to be part of an extremely capable Security team at Deliveroo where you can harness our existing process and technology investments, and bring new ways of working to help us protect our employees, customers, riders and restaurants. As we continue to grow our business, your specialist capabilities will play a key part in our story.

  • produce high-quality written and oral updates for key business stakeholders;
  • lead post-incident reviews for security incidents to drive continuous improvement;

  • support high-severity non-cyber incident escalations across Deliveroo;
  • support the maturity of our technology stack within Security;
  • support incident readiness activities such as table top exercises and simulations;
  • mentor junior members of the wider Security Operations & Incident Response team; and,
  • work as part of an 24/7/365 on-call capability to support security incidents.

We move fast, value autonomy and ownership, and we are always looking for new ideas.

Workplace & Diversity

At Deliveroo we know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth and relocation.

We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing startups in an incredibly exciting space.
