Security Innovator – Office of the CTO – SecureWorks - Remote

SecureWorks is a global leader in providing intelligence-driven information security solutions. We play an important role, as no organization in the world is immune from cyberattacks and the nature of the attack is changing every day. Internet security is a problem that will never be solved. Unlike point products that address a specific technology issue, we attack the problem holistically by analyzing threat actor tactics, techniques and procedures, and develop solutions using best-of-breed technologies to protect our clients.

We are one of the best in the world at understanding the threat.

In short, we give our clients an early warning capability. SecureWorks was founded in 1999 and headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., with offices in all the major security markets around the globe. We have more than 2,000 team members, and partner with more than 4,200 clients in 59 countries to keep the bad guys out of their networks. We’ve been consistently recognized by industry analysts, readers’ polls and as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for managed security services, worldwide.

Role Overview

We build products that organizations worldwide depend on to detect, investigate, and take targeted action against tomorrow’s most sophisticated cyber-attacks. As a Security Innovator in the office of the CTO (OCTO) you will build solutions for the next generation of security problems. We work as a team to identify solutions to meaningful security problems in the Cloud and IoT spaces and then develop products that address those problems at scale.
