Cyber threats are evolving, and perimeter security and automated protection aren’t enough—it’s time to go threat hunting. We need your help in detecting advanced cyber threats to the nation's critical infrastructure. Instead of letting the attackers come to us, let’s go find them.

We’re looking for an experienced Cyber Threat Hunt and Pursuit Analyst who can think like a cyber attacker to figure out how to circumvent security measures. You’ll use your network defense experience and analytical skills to rapidly prototype and develop scripts to create haystacks and sift through the false positives to find patterns and indicators. Work with our team of cyber threat hunter experts to find the adversary in the SIEM’s blind spot and advise federal customers on ways to close the gaps and harden their network. 

With your technical expertise, you’ll build creative solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. This is a chance to think differently about cyber defense, use completely new tools and approaches, and develop the next generation of security analytics. 

Let’s outsmart the adversary and secure part of the nation's critical infrastructure.

Join us. The world can’t wait.

  • 15+ years of experience with information assurance or cyber security
