Job Description

Synack is the ultimate cyber security weapon! Headquartered in Silicon Valley with regional offices around the world, we protect leading global organizations by reducing companies’ security risk and increasing their resistance to cyber attack. How do we do this? By utilizing the world’s best and most trusted team of ethical hackers who test through our powerful AI technology. At Synack, we aren’t afraid to think outside the box or take on big challenges. Backed by top-tier venture capital firms including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Microsoft, and Google Ventures, Synack's mission is to leverage global security talent coupled with advanced technology to help enterprises discover security vulnerabilities before they become business problems. Discover the possibilities at Synack!

As an Security Operations Engineer you will play a critical role in assisting clients in support of their penetration test assessments.  Your technical expertise will be required in understanding the attack surface of various assets that our Synack Red Team (SRT) will test and developing unique solutions to support these tests. In this capacity you will be facilitating successful engagements critical to client success and SRT enablement. 

Here’s what you'll do:

  • Have outstanding relevant technical competencies coupled with a consultative mindset to gather requirements, understand customer needs, and influence internal stakeholders.
  • Develop a technical understanding of the client by asking thoughtful questions about:
    • Their digital attack surface and value at risk
    • Their existing vulnerability programs, tools and methods
    • Their security program, including ERM requirements and goals
  • Develop the scope of penetration tests and guide researchers to more effective testing
  • Work independently with little guidance and provide any/all technical product expertise in building the appropriate solution for the client.
  • Partner with internal stakeholders to develop and execute key assessment plans.
  • Develop unique solutions for implementing Synack assets in support of Client systems.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Strong technical background (emphasizing on cybersecurity)
  • Experience in vulnerability discovery, management, and remediation
  • Excellent time management, multi-tasking, and prioritization skills as well as the ability to manage multiple concurrent projects
  • Strong experience working in complex environments with the ability to work through contractual requirements and demands to ensure a successful engagement
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, with an emphasis on clearly articulating technical concepts to non-technical individuals
  • Experience with vulnerability management, risk management frameworks and associated business workflows
  • Proven experience with scripting languages (language independent) and developing scripted solutions to problems
  • Relevant industry certifications in penetration testing and/or security management--OSWE, OSCP, GPEN, CISSP, CISA
  • Compliance and audit familiarity--PCI, ISO 27001, SOC 1, SOC 2
