  • Supporting application security efforts, including security reviews and assessments
  • Supporting our vulnerability management program, including expansion of existing coverage and review and remediation of identified vulnerabilities
  • Developing internal playbooks and tabletops to train teams on how to handle common attack scenarios
  • Communicating with security leadership and senior management on our security posture
  • Looking for ways to innovate and improve existing processes
What you'll bring with you
  • 5+ years in security, especially in operating or managing a SOC
  • Experience working with various SIEM or threat intelligence systems
  • Familiarity with common and latest forms of attacker techniques and tools, including detection and prevention techniques
  • Direct experience developing thresholds, alerts, dashboards, and incident response playbooks
  • Experience with security frameworks such as ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type 2, and CSA STAR
  • Experience with security cloud environments, particularly AWS and Azure
  • Ability to work cross functionally to integrate systems into the SOC and drive remediation
  • Ability to design and implement approaches to detecting attack, including automation of triage and remediation
  • Strong understanding of IP networking fundamentals, firewalls, and gateways/proxies
  • Knowledge of SAST, penetration testing, and various vulnerability management tools
  • Ability to adapt to shifting priorities, timelines, and different roles
  • Strong written, verbal, and technical program management skills
  • Openness to new ideas and a willingness to innovate
  • Ability to operate effectively in a remote environment
