Security Analyst : Forensics and Remediation
Defiant Inc via Stack Overflow
Jul 25th 2018
Defiant is a fast-moving cybersecurity company that delivers the best threat protection for WordPress sites.
We're a 100% remote team, nimble, self managing and work in a relaxed atmosphere with a sense of humor. Rather than working for a mega-corp, you will be working in a company where your work has real impact in the fun, high-growth stages of our evolution.
We are looking for security analysts to join our forensics team. You will assist our customers to investigate how their site was hacked and to repair their site and remove all traces of the intrusion. In addition to this you will also collect evidence from intrusions that will help improve our threat detection. You will need to determine how the intrusion occurred and then collect all IOC's (indicators of compromise) and share this data with our product team in a structured way.
You must be highly technical and be comfortable with a wide range of open source tools.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
You must work well in a team.
You must be nimble, be able to come up with creative solutions to challenging problems and must have a mature approach to problem solving.
Attention to detail.
Note: Applicants who can work weekends will be given priority consideration.
We have the highest star rating for any WordPress plugin in history and we pride ourselves on providing an excellent product with great customer service that helps secure small and large production websites. If you're passionate about information security and would like to help secure the web, this is your dream job. We take our team's family time seriously and don't ask you to work long hours if we can avoid it (we almost always can). Our entire team works remotely using Slack for casual interaction so you can live practically anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. Wordfence is high growth, but we are not a startup. The company is still controlled by the founders, we are profitable and have been for many years. So you will enjoy the rush of high growth but you won't have to risk working for a company that is controlled by venture capitalists or may not be here tomorrow.
