  • Incident Response Engineer

    Verizon Media (aka Paranoids)

    We are the FIRE Team (Forensics, Incident Response and Engineering) within The Paranoids, similar in purpose but not your typical Incident Response team. We identify intrusions and secure hosts and networks from security incidents. We hunt, monitor and boot adversaries from our environment using both standard sometimes experimental techniques. The folks on our team handle anything that comes our way whether that be the latest 0-day, consulting on best-practices or even developing new detections. Our team excels in handling incidents by utilizing our prior experience and knowledge along with the raw talent to solve issues on the fly. Verizon Media has experts in every technology to lean on when we need support, but our team takes the lead for all incidents for all Verizon Media properties and brands. We’re seeking hands-on security leaders who work independently and in a team based setting to accomplish The Paranoids overall goals; securing the company and protecting the user!
