Staff Threat Intelligence Engineer

Published date Posted on Indeed on Nov 19, 2021 (9 d ago)

It’s an exciting time to be at Infoblox. Named a Top 25 Cyber Security Company by The Software Report and one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2020, Infoblox is the leader in cloud-first networking and security services. Our solutions empower organizations to take full advantage of the cloud to deliver network experiences that are inherently simple, scalable, and reliable for everyone. Infoblox customers are among the largest enterprises in the world and include 70% of the Fortune 500, and our success depends on bright, energetic, talented people who share a passion for building the next generation of networking technologies—and having fun along the way.

We are looking for a Staff Threat Intelligence Engineer to join our Analysis and Research team in North America. While the majority of this team is located in Tacoma, Washington, outside Seattle, this role is open for remote work for the right candidate. In this senior role, you will contribute to the discovery and assessment of threat indicators that appear in the Domain Name System (DNS) while creating ways for our customers to better understand and prioritize their security events. You will use your subject matter expertise in modern threats and big data technologies to identify, evaluate and extract new threats and also help drive strategy, focus implementation, and mentor more junior members of the organization.

You’re the ideal candidate if you are an adventurer who likes to do a bit of everything—from coding to open-source analysis to machine learning to honeypots. You have strong technical roots, aren't afraid to learn outside the box, and want to do threat research in a way that really matters.

What you’ll do:

  • Discover threats related to DNS and script algorithms to deliver indicators to protect customer networks
  • Design workflows, algorithms, and/or enrichments to help customers prioritize and understand threats within their network
  • Research, design, develop, and build repeatable analytics, heuristics, rules-based detection, and machine learning models around threats, tactics/techniques/procedures (TTPs), and indicator scoring
  • Use statistics and scripting in Python and PySpark to draw insights from very large, diverse data sets
  • Analyze structured and unstructured data sets to identify trends and anomalies that could indicate malicious activity
  • Collaborate with colleagues who have different kinds of expertise to address complex threat problems
  • Craft reports on discoveries such as threat actors, malware, and campaigns
  • Develop and execute strategies to increase our data collection and threat hunting capabilities to include honeypots, spam, and OSINT hunting
  • Mentor junior team members

What you’ll bring:

  • 8+ years overall experience with deep subject matter expertise in threat analysis and research, including open-source intelligence
  • Ability to analyze threat signatures in DNS traffic and other data sources to find and identify malicious activity, campaigns, and the threat landscape
  • Extensive experience in network protocol log analysis, preferably in the DNS protocol and/or other complex data sources for threat hunting
  • The ability to know when to keep digging and the experience to know when to stop
  • Coding and data skills such as Python, data analysis and statistics, and use of notebooks (Jupyter, Databricks)
  • A collaborative approach, questioning and inquisitive mind, and a drive to learn and employ new tools and techniques
  • MA, MS, PhD, or equivalent demonstrated experience

What success looks like

After six months, you will…

  • Contribute new algorithms to find indicators of compromise for our products
  • Start new research and write at least one publication
  • Have a strong baseline understanding of our data sources, pipelines, tools, and techniques.

After about a year, you will…

  • Design your research and prototyping capabilities to better protect our customers
  • Mentor and collaborate with others to execute research agendas
  • Master our data sources and actively apply your expertise to develop new analytics in threat intelligence and prioritization

We’ve got you covered:

Our holistic benefits package includes coverage of your health, wealth, and wellness—as well as a great work environment, employee programs, and company culture. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including a 401k with company match and generous paid time off to help you balance your life. We have a strong culture and live our values every day—we believe in transparency, curiosity, respect, and above all, having fun while delighting our customers.

Speaking of a great work environment, here are just a few of the perks you may enjoy, depending on your location…

  • Onsite massages, clubs, farmers market, and fitness classes
  • Delicious and healthy snacks and beverages
  • Electric vehicle charging stations
  • Outdoor amenities, seating, and courtyard BBQ
  • Dog park and pet-friendly programs
  • Newly remodeled offices with state-of-the-art amenities

Why Infoblox?

We’ve created a culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion and rewards innovation, curiosity, and creativity. We achieve remarkable results by working together in a supportive environment that focuses on continuous learning and embraces change. So, whether you’re a software engineer, marketing manager, customer care pro, or product specialist, you belong here, where you will have the opportunity to grow and develop your career. Check out what it’s like to be a Bloxer. We think you’ll be excited to join our team.
