Job Description - Senior Security Engineer

Senior threat hunting role, based in our Research and Hunting team, focused on bridging the gap between the proactive hunting of our R&H team and the responsive investigation of our Operations and Defense team.  The ideal candidate has 5-10+ years of experience in a cross-section of network operations and security operations, providing a solid understanding of both how the infrastructure works and how to protect it.  This person is most likely a senior security analyst in a SOC or similar, and has begun working towards more threat-specific roles, most likely working to understand how new threats might be successful in the environment, and how to detect and stop them.  This role will begin to expand the intelligence side of threat profiling to augment our current tactical threat approach, and we have brought in commercial intelligence tools to help build that function, so this candidate will eventually work into end-to-end threat assessment both internally and externally.  There is an expectation of a professional level of poise and presence, both in writing and speaking, that will allow this candidate to communicate their findings to broad audiences.


Ideal/preferred experience and skills:

  • 5-10+ years of experience in a larger enterprise or multinational org, focused on some combination of network operations and information security operations
  • Solid knowledge of information security principles
  • Experience with tactical surveillance and/or containment operations
  • Senior operational experience across multiple domains, with an expert understanding of operating systems, networking and security technologies
  • Strong writing experience and related presence, preferably for leadership and professional audiences

Advanced beneficial experience:

  • Build and maintain expert knowledge of company infrastructure, with a focus on proactively identifying security gaps
  • Conduct and document threat, threat actor and malware research
  • Engagement and awareness across industry, commercial, open source, government, and law enforcement domains

Ideal beneficial certifications:

  • CEH
  • CompTIA Security+
  • GCIH or GPEN
  • GSEC
  • GREM
  • GNFA
  • GXPN
  • most 500-600 level SANS certs
