Posted on Tuesday, January 30, 2024

Are you someone who has led security incidents across multiple technologies and find the opportunity to learn new things thrilling? Have you spent time building your skills, testing new theories and exploring complex problems? How does it sound to work somewhere where you can pull all that together, while helping others thrive along a similar path?

You love to solve big problems, like crafting a security incident response approach that’s able to meet the needs of customers of all shapes and sizes. You’re strategic but also know when to focus on the tactics. You’re able to push projects through from design to delivery without getting pulled into the weeds. You’re fearless, collaborative, curious and lead with compassion and emotional intelligence.

You’ve leveraged your experience to mentor others on their own journeys as security practitioners. You view security as a team sport, where diverse skills and perspectives enable defenders to find and vanquish threat actors.

Strategy and optimization comes naturally to you. You’re eager to find ways to use tech and process to improve the scale and quality of our SOC-as-a-Service. You love to find ways to achieve a high multiplier effect for your team.
