Our Purpose

In the Cybersecurity Engineering team at Datacom, we help secure and monitor our client environments, our goal is to Identify, Protect, Detect and Respond to existing or emergent threats or vulnerabilities and aid in the Recovery from any Cybersecurity incidents. We provide services to a wide variety of clients and government departments across Australia and New Zealand.

Our Team

Datacom is evolving. We offer opportunity for IT security professionals interested in career growth and keen to stay on top of the latest technologies. You will work within a large team of professionals with opportunity to progress and gain industry certifications and experience across a very wide range of technical environments.

About the Role

As a Tech Lead in our Cybersecurity Projects and Engineering team, your role will be to lead and deploy Cybersecurity solutions to enable the monitoring, management and assessment of the client environments. As part of the deployment process those systems will be transitioned to the analyst teams that will be monitoring the client environments, and to the teams that will be maintaining them.

While the deployment activities are largely project based, CDOC is always looking to improve both the deployment process itself, and the product implementations we are delivering, so the role is not exclusively project based.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about the Cybersecurity field and is looking to build a career in this space. You will have at least 5 years’ experience in IT roles with significant experience with Cyber Security technologies and products. You will have a solid understanding of SIEM platforms, EDR technologies and Vulnerability Management, along with a good understanding of the underpinnings that hold it all together such as Wintel/Linux capability, scripting, networks, firewalls, proxies, virtualisation and cloud technologies. Experience with Endpoint controls, NBAD, DLP concepts and technologies would be beneficial and exposure to Security Orchestration and Automation methodologies would be highly regarded.

What You’ll Do

  • Specification and design of solutions for new clients in conjunction with the CDOC Architects and client representatives
  • Implementation of designed solutions to bring clients “onboard” in coordination with CDOC and client PMs around activities, resourcing and timelines.
  • Creation of deployment and handover documentation for CDOC and other required support teams as well as performing “go live” handover meetings for any required support teams
  • Define and improve the processes for new service onboarding
  • Develop and document requirements, capabilities, and constraints for design procedures and processes.
  • Working closely with the Analysts, Platforms, Solution Specialists and Automation Engineers providing feedback, requirements and suggesting process improvements
  • Be the technical escalation point for other CDOC Project Engineers, along with mentoring and guiding them at a technical level.

What you’ll bring

  • A security focused mindset.
  • A passion for designing and building solutions that work well and effectively meet the client requirements
  • A commitment to continuous improvement, of yourself, of the team, of the implementations, and of the ways the solutions are implemented
  • The ability to communicate effectively and in a timely manner within and across teams and across multiple levels of technical capability
  • The capability to work across multiple projects at various stages of completion
  • An appreciation for the agile methodology
  • A mindset towards automation and scripting wherever possible
  • An openness to learning new technologies, capabilities and products
  • Be the escalation point and lead for our Customers and Engineers
  • Provide guidance and mentoring to other engineers on a technical level
  • Contribute to Product Development

We look at a wide range of capability and if you have any of the below experiences we want to hear from you!

  • Technical capability and experience with SIEM deployments (ideally Splunk and/or Sentinel), their use and capabilities
  • Technical capability and experience with EDR deployments (ideally CrowdStrike and/or Defender), their use and capabilities
  • Technical capability and experience with Vulnerability assessment / management deployments (ideally Rapid 7), and familiarity with the vulnerability assessment / management process.
  • Technical capability and experience with operating systems such as Windows and Linux
  • Technical capability and experience with scripting and programming languages
  • Experience with networking devices, Firewalls (ideally Fortinet, Checkpoint, Palo Alto and/or zScaler) and proxies, etc
  • Experience with Virtualisation and Azure/AWS cloud technologies
  • Experience with and appreciation of the significance of the ITIL change management processes
