Listing Description

Workrise is hiring a Senior Security Analyst that will be responsible for the day-to-day analysis of security threats, vulnerabilities, and detections.

What you’ll be doing:

The Security Analyst is a dynamic role that requires strong analytical skills, scripting skills (we leverage python for detections), a solid offensive security mindset, ability to tell stories with data, and ability to take a heuristic approach to vulnerability management.

  • Bug Bounty Program Triage - You will be responsible for triaging and reproducing reports that come in from our Bug Bounty and Vulnerability Management programs.

  • SIEM Detection & Response - You will be responsible for creating and running playbooks for critical alerts

  • Vulnerability Management - Security tools are inherently noisy, you will be responsible for assessing vulnerability priorities and tuning vulnerability management heuristics.

  • Incident Response - You will start and lead security investigations, determine indicators of compromise and bring in stakeholders for awareness.

  • Data mining & report building - Because we are a data-minded organization, you will tell stories with data and build interactive dashboards (Tableau, Google Data Studio, Juypter)

  • Creating & tuning SIEM detections - You will help create and tune detections to reduce signal to noise, and surface critical and actionable events.

  • Collaboration  - You won’t do any of this in a vacuum. You will have a team of Security Engineers, Privacy Officers, and an organization that will support you in these efforts by building best-in-class security solutions to give your work the ultimate impact.
