The qualified candidate will understand IT infrastructure and networking to be able to quickly dispatch security incidents with the help and guidance of a senior level security engineering team. The Security Analyst will triage incidents and assess incidents by using web-based resources to determine if a given event is potentially viable or otherwise.

Ability to work closely with all internal departments such as engineering, operations, sales, marketing, and executive management
A willingness to learn and try new things is critical with a positive can-do attitude.
