Published date Posted on Indeed on Nov 30, 2021 (54 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 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 from anywhere in the US. In this role, you will contribute to the discovery and assessment of threat indicators that appear in the Domain Name System (DNS) while designing methods for our customers to better understand and prioritize their security events. You will build subject matter expertise in both modern threats and big data technologies to identify, evaluate, and extract new threats and develop capabilities that protect customers all over the world.

You’re the ideal candidate if you are excited about threat intelligence and have a knack for data analysis. You have some experience under your belt and have at least tinkered with security—perhaps you have a home lab or have done a Kaggle competition. You are an adventurous critical thinker and are eager to broaden your skill set while making a difference.

What you’ll do:

  • Discover threats related to DNS and script algorithms to deliver indicators to protect customer networks
  • Contribute to workflows, algorithms, and/or enrichments to help customers prioritize and understand threats within their network
  • Research, design, develop, and build repeatable analytics, heuristics and rules-based detection 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

What you’ll bring:

  • 3-5 years of experience in threat analysis, threat research, statistical analysis, and/or machine learning
  • Knowledge of threat analysis and research, including open-source intelligence or an equivalent level of experience in statistical analysis with a passion for threat intelligence
  • Ability to analyze threat signatures in DNS traffic and other data sources to find and identify malicious activity, campaigns, and the threat landscape
  • Coding and data skills such as Python, data analysis and statistics, use of notebooks (Jupyter, Databricks)
  • A collaborative approach, questioning and inquisitive mind, and a drive to learn and employ new tools and techniques
  • Experience in network protocol log analysis, preferably in the DNS protocol and/or other complex data sources for threat hunting

What success looks like:

After six months, you will…

  • Contribute to new algorithms to find indicators of compromise for our products
  • Support research and write at least one publication
  • Understand our data sources, pipelines, tools, and techniques

After about a year, you will…

  • Design your research and prototyping capabilities to better protect our customers
  • Collaborate with others to execute research agendas
  • Use our data sources 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

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.
