  • Provide advice to customers and internal stakeholders on vulnerability remediation, across web application, networking and cloud/server-less technologies;
  • Use command-line and GUI tooling, as well as leveraging SIEM platform and logs for incident investigation;
  • Work with developers and software engineers to improve vulnerability scanning and reporting tools, techniques and reports via bug reports and feature requests;
  • Assist customers in leveraging our vulnerability scanning platform for maximal value;
  • Ensuring that any system issues or outages are proactively reported to customers via status updates;
  • Deliver on required SLOs, KPIs and OLAs to deliver on customer commitments.

  • Scripting and Linux command line (curl, nmap, etc)
  • Experience with a support ticket system (ZenDesk, JIRA, SalesForce ServiceCloud);
  • Scripting or basic coding skills (any language, but we use mainly Python)
  • Experience with and understanding of REST APIs

 

What’s In It For You?:
