Cyber security and Reverse Engineer, Junior

The Challenge

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for customers? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for customers that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats. 

As a Cyber Operations Engineer on our team, you’ll support clients in solving difficult problems by leveraging knowledge of how to analyze and evaluate complex malicious code to create technical reports for identification parameters, develop detection techniques, advanced capabilities, and potential mitigation strategies. You’ll work to continually improve current malware analysis techniques and identify new ways to help colleagues identify malware as well as conduct ongoing research and training in comprehending malicious software. You’ll coordinate work with in-house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions, to maintain a balance of security and business needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our customers. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like network and endpoint-based detection and technical intelligence reporting. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like IDS signature authoring, reverse engineering, and security tool automation while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve our customers' security posture through cybersecurity
