Red Canary was founded to create a world where every organization can make its greatest impact without fear of cyber threats. We’re a cyber security company who protects, supports and empowers organizations to make better security decisions so they can focus on their mission without fear of cyber threats.


The combination of our market-defining technology and expertise prevents breaches every day and sets a new standard for partnership in the industry. We’re united in our commitment to customers and grounded in our values, which earned us a place on the Forbes Best Start-up Employers 2022 list. If our mission resonates with you, let’s talk.


What We Believe In

- Do what’s right for the customer

- Be kind and authentic

- Deliver great quality

- Be relentless


Challenges You Will Solve

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) continues to push the boundaries of threat detection and response with a unique combination of operations, threat research, and engineering in tight integration with the development team that designs our analysis platform and the Red Canary Threat Detection Engine.


The security landscape is always shifting and introducing new adversaries. The Red Canary CIRT operates 24/7 to track down threats using the entirety of our customer’s data and deliver fast and practical detections to our customers.


This is not a role where you are encouraged to passively accept the current state. At Red Canary, you are empowered to actively look for opportunities to automate repetitive and tedious tasks. We let the automation framework handle the mundane tasks, so that you can remain focused on solving complex and critical problems for our customers.

What You'll Do

  • Use Red Canary’s detection platform to analyze EDR telemetry, alerts, and log sources across several detection domains (Endpoint, Identity, SIEM, Cloud/SaaS, etc.)
  • Publish threats for customers using concisely-written communication while effectively conveying key and important indicators
  • Detector Development: Research coverage opportunities then create new detectors, and tune existing ones.
  • Improve the CIRT workflow through orchestration & automation
  • Provide mentorship to your peers and communicate effectively with others for efficient cross-team collaboration

What You'll Bring

  • Analysis experience and proficiency in one or more of the following functional areas: Endpoint (MDR), Cloud/SaaS, Identity, Email, SIEM
  • Proven experience with automation and orchestration to effectively handle an extreme volume of telemetry and logs in a timely and efficient manner
  • Strong written communication skills, and abilities to work in a team-centric environment
  • Strong analytical thought-process and critical thinking skills to translate disparate activity into the realm of threat analysis
  • Open-source intelligence research skills used in a fast-paced operational environment, and the ability to apply those findings within the analytical workflow to identify threats
  • Experience leveraging Mitre ATT&CK framework, and familiarity with other alternative attack frameworks and threat models
  • Familiarity with backend data structures used for security analysis (JSON, YAML, etc.)
  • Experience using query languages and understanding syntax across EDR or other security platforms (SQL, K, Lucene, etc.)
  • Experience creating and tuning detectors/rules using commonly known tools such as YARA, SIGMA, Snort, Splunk, Elastic, etc.

Bonus Points

  • You enjoy impacting the Infosec community through writing blogs, participating in webinars, and presenting at conference talks
  • Experience using version control software for the deployment of detectors, rules, or other automations (GitHub, CircleCi, etc)
  • Previous Red Team experience

Targeted base salary range: $95,000 - $117,900 + bonus eligibility and equity depending on experience

An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

On a quarterly basis, we have a companywide gathering that we affectionately call BEASTMODE. It’s a great opportunity for “Canaries” from across the country to come together, level-set on the state of the business, get to know each other better, and build a close knit community trying to make a positive impact on the world.

Director, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) reached the milestone of 10,000 spec/unit tests to validate our detection logic, an indicator of how diligently we maintain our detectors. Continued validation that everything is working as anticipated is key to ensuring a successful security program.

Joe

VP, Customer Security Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Curiosity. If you are asking questions, building on what you just learned, and relating it to something known, then you are truly curious about what you’re learning and you will become an expert.

Diane

Director of Product Support

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As we continue to grow and add specialized focus across digital media, video, and an even more robust content program, I want the team to be able to take all the great insights and educational pieces and recommendations and make it easy for people to find them, understand them, and implement them. To be able to use what we’re doing in marketing in

Brianne

Director, Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am most proud of the fact that the culture of the team has not only stayed in tact, but has matured and elevated, despite the rapid growth. Senior team members constantly go out of their way to ensure that new CSEs are welcomed, growing, and set up for success. Success is rooted in team dynamics and culture.
