5+ years of experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Detection engineering, specifically, writing robust, production-scale queries in any major EDR

  • Offensive security, specifically red team operations or purple teaming

  • Malware development, ideally using C, C++, C#, Go, or Rust

  • Primary source intelligence collection and technical analysis, targeting both open and closed sources  (Note: geopolitics and attribution are not in scope)

Deep knowledge of Windows operating system internals and reverse engineering

  • Commonly used tools: IDA Pro, Binary Ninja, Ghidra, and WinDbg

Strong understanding of how modern EDRs/XDRs work internally

Ability to explain complex technical concepts and research outputs to both executive-level and highly technical consumers

Aptitude for working in a fast-paced, adaptive startup environment

 

Nice to Haves
  • Understanding of cloud-based tradecraft (Azure and AWS preferred)

  • Prior software development experience, especially using Rust

  • Kernel-mode software (i.e., driver) development experience
