This role is best suited for candidates who have some experience in a SOC or CSIRT team and enjoy investigating and finding the root of an issue or incident, performing proactive Threat Hunting, or optimizing security tools and platforms. Candidates who excel in this position think critically to find ways to resolve emerging security challenges. This is a unique opportunity to develop as a security professional working in a challenging, complex, and highly regulated enterprise environment.
