Job Title: Senior Security Engineer

Our company is seeking a highly skilled and experienced Senior Security Engineer to join our team. The ideal candidate will have expertise in threat hunting EDR tools, such as Carbon Black, Crowdstrike, Uptick, or Sentinel One, as well as a deep understanding of processes and behaviors. The successful candidate will be responsible for creating custom rules within these tools that correlate with the behavior of malware or hacker groups. The ability to create rules within the console itself, based on established procedures, is a must. Experience with scripting is also highly desirable.

In addition, the ideal candidate will have extensive knowledge of Splunk, with the ability to create and tune Splunk rules. The ability to manage and update agents, schedule tasks, and manage the console is required. Experience with cloud security and vulnerability management, specifically with Qualys, is also highly desirable.

The successful candidate will be joining a dynamic and collaborative team that places a strong emphasis on open communication and teamwork. As part of this team, the Senior Security Engineer will be responsible for managing and operating the EDRM tools, following up with application teams and end-users, and assisting with vulnerability management.

The ideal candidate will be a self-starter, able to work independently and collaboratively, with a strong commitment to achieving results. The ability to work in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment is essential. A willingness to help out and jump into various security-related tasks, including phishing campaigns, is highly valued.

If you are an experienced Senior Security Engineer with a passion for staying ahead of the latest security threats and technologies, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity. We offer competitive compensation packages and a comprehensive benefits program.
