We are seeking an early-career security technologist to join our new team of Security Strategists at Splunk, who are dedicated to research and evangelism. As a security strategist, you will work in every part of Splunk's security world. From sales to incident response, to blogging and speaking on stage, and to researching and innovating, you will be doing a little bit of everything with our team. Our strategists at Splunk, on any level, are quick problem-solvers, storytellers dedicated to customer success, and have a passion for the big picture.
Splunk is a global company with global customers, and this is a worldwide team. The day-to-day job is flexible both in content and schedule. You could spend the first hour of your day catching up on last night's Slacks from colleagues in Australia, while also reading Twitter #infosec. Or you could be presenting at 0800 to a CISO from a large bank in Omaha.
Your day-to-day work could be supporting senior Security Strategists' research on larger projects designed to resolve cybersecurity problems using Splunk and machine learning. You might finish your day by jumping on a LinkedIn Live panel and chatting about the most recent Ransomware outbreak. Or you could be putting the final touches on your BlackHat CFP submission and copyediting a colleague's blog post before working on the script for your YouTube video. In this role, you will become a trusted advisor and partner to Splunk customers while also being on a team that is resolving their (and everyone else's) biggest problems.
We are seeking an early-career strategist candidate (or on their 9th career pivot) in cybersecurity. That can mean many things, and none of them may have to do with "years of experience.” Perhaps you are coming home from your last deployment to Afghanistan, or you are a system admin who wants to move into cyber. Maybe you are a librarian or journalist looking for a change? Just finished university?
Let’s talk! Saying that, we do have some specific areas of knowledge that we are looking for you to have when you walk in the door:
You must be passionate about (cyber/information) security
You have learned basic IT, cybersecurity, or Splunk concepts through education or on-the-job training.
You are comfortable communicating (verbally or written but not dancing). You either already have that talent or are looking to learn how to do it better.
You are proficient in at least one of these subjects: security operations, Python, Splunk, social media production, copyediting, data science/machine learning, public speaking, IT networking, "cloud,” system administration, writing, or academic-style research.
We value diversity at our company. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or any other applicable legally protected characteristics in the location in which the candidate is applying.
For job positions in San Francisco, CA, and other locations where required, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
