We are growing and are looking for future Axonians who value personal and career growth, team-work, and winning!

The ideal candidate has at least a couple of years of hands-on experience helping shape and operate a security operations function, even at a basic level. The person should have an engineering mindset and be familiar with Python or another modern programming language.

If you’re already a strong Python developer without extensive security experience and want to advance your cybersecurity skills, this is the perfect role for you!

What your day will look like:

As a Security Operations Engineer at Axonius, you will help to grow and mature the operational aspects of our well-resourced security program. This will involve evaluating and implementing security solutions as well as designing and participating in threat detection, response, and hunting activities. Your work will directly impact all areas of our business.

  • Investigate alerts and events that might have information security implications.
  • Respond to and handle the cross-team coordination of potential security incidents, and develop automations to reduce the chances of future similar incidents.
  • Evaluate, implement, and maintain modern cloud-native security tooling related to corporate and product infrastructure.
  • Implement and maintain custom internal tools to fully automate or otherwise supercharge the team’s human ability to triage and investigate security events.
  • Follow industry security trends, advisories, news, and general research, and advise stakeholders across the company on how to stay ahead of relevant security risks.
  • Advise internal stakeholders on security-related subjects ranging from general OpSec to corporate application or infrastructure architecture.
