Are you someone who has led several 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?
When you catch yourself daydreaming it is often because you like thinking like the attacker in order to make systems smarter vs. letting the systems drive you. We get that thinking, because we do it too. Our guess is you’ve also set up some stuff to expand your skills and test your theories – and it has been successful.
Ultimately though, you care about this work for a reason. You’re doing it to protect someone or something. And, over time your purpose has expanded, because now you are also in a position to guide and mentor the next generation of security talent, and this matters to you. This can be all in a day’s work here at Expel!
Does this sound like you? If yes, then we’d love to talk with you. We’re looking for someone who is deeply curious, passionate about helping customers to detect the bad guys and excited at the prospect of hunting around in customer networks for evil. We have an amazing team and believe you’ll love getting to know us.
