TEAM
The security team at Woven Planet is on the cutting edge of many challenging security problems. We identify emerging security threats in autonomous vehicles and help design more secure systems. We work closely with internal platform teams to provide a secure development environment through tooling and automation, allowing developers to innovate quickly without compromising security.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are seeking an experienced Incident Response engineer to support our Security Incident Response Team. The right candidate will have an in-depth understanding of the overall security landscape, be experienced in tuning detection systems to spot attacker Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs), and have a proven background in designing and deploying Security Information Event Management (SIEM) systems.

They will work with the analysis team to continuously improve our detection systems’ visibility by integrating new log sources, building out new use cases based on intel generated by our intelligence team, analysis of recovered malware samples, and following common frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK. They will lead responses to active incidents, collaborating with IT, security, and business stakeholders to kick attackers out of our systems as quickly as possible. They will provide technical mentorship to junior members of the team, and act as an escalation tier for complex analysis.

We are looking for an individual who can balance technical risks against business risks and consistently drive for the right results. They must have the passion for engineering solutions to complex security challenges, and recognize and fill gaps in capabilities. The ability to quickly design and build internal-facing tools that enable scaled programmatic automation is core to our organization.

The successful candidate will have a good mix of deep technical knowledge, a demonstrated background in information security, and an analytical mindset that is driven by curiosity. We value broad and deep technical knowledge, specifically in the fields of operating system security, network security, software security, malware analysis, forensics, security operations, incident response, and emergent security intelligence.
