  • You have at least 1+ year administering firewalls, SSL inspection, IPS, and URL content filtering
  • You have at least 1+ year of administering one or more of the following: certificate authorities, PAM systems, SIEM, STIGs, DLP
  • You have a Security+ certification (or SANS equivalent)

It would be even better if you...

  • Have experience/familiarity with Windows, Linux, and Cisco IOS.
  • Are 'automation-minded' - think: repeatable, scalable, secure

What you ll get

  • Rapid PTO accrual schedule with floating holidays
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • Tuition assistance, financing, and refinancing
  • Paid maternity and paternity leave
  • Company-paid infertility treatments
  • Cross-training and professional development opportunities
  • The ability to influence major initiatives
