Devo is proud to be recognized as a Great Place to Work®.

Devo is investing in bright, agile, and diverse talent to contribute to our mission of unleashing the Power of Security Analysts, increasing SOC effectiveness, finding & stopping sophisticated threats.
As a Lead Content Engineer you’ll play a key role supporting our SaaS product by improving our ability to detect, analyze, and respond to the organization’s cyber threats. You have experience developing detections aligned with the MITRE ATT&CK framework and understand complete framework coverage is not realistic. Therefore, we need your expertise to help ensure our SOC is focusing on detecting attacks with the highest risk to us.
Additionally, you will strive to improve detection fidelity and decrease false positives, enabling the SOC to effectively analyze and respond when alerted.
How you will make an impact:
  • Create detection use cases in SOC tooling to alert SOC analysts to relevant threats.
  • Tune SIEM correlation searches and other security tooling to improve fidelity and minimize false positives.
  • Build dashboards, playbooks, and other content to optimize the team’s ability to investigate and respond to alerts.
  • Manage the content development and threat detection efforts of our MSSP.
  • Partner with our SIEM administration team to identify and remediate issues that affect SOC operations.
  • Support security specific functions of our SIEM such as configuration of Technology Add-ons, Enterprise Security dashboards and features, and ensuring CIM compliance of key log sources.
  • Manage SOC logging requirements by working with our business areas and our SIEM administration team to ensure relevant logs are available in our SIEM to drive SOC detection and analysis needs.
  • Influence and support initiatives and new capabilities that will improve our SOC maturity.
  • Some examples might include Risk-Based Alerting, Adversary Simulation, or Attack Ranges.
  • Serve as an escalation point for other Security Operations team members.
  • Provide backup support for other Enterprise Information Security Office functions as needed.
  • Experience building content (searches, dashboards, alerting) within an enterprise SIEM.
  • Knowledge and familiarity with current industry best practices (information security policies, procedures, and regulations) and tools (event management and automation) to perform cyber defense activities within the context of an Enterprise SOC.
  • Knowledge of adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and ability to share meaningful insights within the context of an organization’s threat environment.
  • Relevant professional certifications such as Security+, C|EH, GCIH, GCDA, GMON, CISSP and/or equivalent professional experience, education, or skills.
What will make you stand out:
  • The ability to effectively prioritize content development based on risk. Just because everyone is talking about some new threat tactic doesn’t mean its top the biggest threat.
  • Experience working with Security Orchestration tools such as Palo Alto XSOAR.
  • An agile mindset to move quickly and make iterative improvements from lessons learned.

Background Experiences:
  • 2+ years of experience working in a SOC.
  • 5+ years of experience in Information Security.
  • Content development experience with Splunk Enterprise Security, Securonix, Exabeam, Logrhythm, or similar
