The Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC) works to understand the cyber threats we face as an organization, develops instrumentation for detection and monitors events 24x7 looking for suspicious activity. The Log Management & Solution Engineering team is part of the CSOC. Our team goals are to ensure the CSOC has relevant data and tools to detect, investigate and respond to incidents without delay. We engage closely with Engineering and many others across the organization to identify security-relevant data sources and then work with data owners to bring their information into our security monitoring environment. On any given day we dig into security logs, architect data ingestion pipelines, research new security alert ideas, maintain hardware and software infrastructure and create automation to make the machines run. We also help drive Proof of Concept (POC) testing and implementation of new commercial technologies for the CSOC. We are responsible for the maintenance and enhancement of certain insider threat rules / policies including those used for detecting data loss.

Your primary responsibility will be to build and maintain infrastructure, data and monitoring systems, including rules and policies that the CSOC relies on to carry out their mission. You will work to support the existing infrastructure of systems and tools, develop new security monitoring solutions and collaborate across the organization to enhance coverage, visibility and bring on new data for security monitoring.

  • Experience working with security related data sources such as Firewalls, Intrusion Detection, Malware Detection, etc…

What’s It Like To Work Here?

We work hard. We are ambitious and set ourselves tough business goals. We are a meritocracy, where everyone has a voice - not a job title. Working with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with is more important than titles or position. Things move fast, and we want people who will enjoy working in this environment and feed off the energy. That being said, it isn’t all about work. Giving back is one of our core values, and there are many ways to get involved in philanthropic initiatives, from helping local school kids with their reading, to helping clean up local parks and waterways.
