Incident Responder / SOC Analyst

Did you know that The Collective was one of the first organizations in Belgium to build and run a SOC entirely on Microsoft Sentinel? Since then, a lot has changed and we now support multiple customers through Microsoft technologies. To further support our growth and to help us stay ahead in what we do for our customers, we are looking for an experienced Incident Responder/SOC Analyst.

How will your working day look like?


You'll work in a team of like-minded people, all eager to help and learn. We do expect some previous experience working in a SOC. Unfortunately, we cannot exactly predict what your day will look like, but you should expect a healthy mix of the following:

  • Work on a variety of second- and third-line security incidents raised with our SOC. Expect to be working on incidents related to Windows, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Azure, Active Directory, ...
  • Proactively hunt for signals and threats in our customer's environment
  • Gather and put to use threat intelligence with regards to current and potential future threats
  • Help identify and – where needed – implement security improvements for our customers

What skillset are we looking for?


  • You love a challenge and are passionate about security.
  • You are willing to go the extra mile to support our customer’s success and security.
  • You are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing. Dutch or French are an added bonus.
  • You embrace lifelong learning and aren’t shy of learning new things.
  • Security and privacy are important to you. You have a security-first mindset and are willing to learn new things; even on the offensive side of security.
  • Prior experience with Microsoft security products such as Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, Microsoft Sentinel and/or Microsoft 365 Defender is a nice to have, but not a requirement.
  • Although living in Belgium will make getting together with your colleagues easier, it's no requirement.
