You love to solve big problems, like crafting a detection and response strategy that’s able to meet the needs of customers of all shapes and sizes. You’re strategic but also know when to focus on the tactics. You’re able to push projects through from design to delivery without getting pulled into the weeds. You’re fearless, collaborative, curious and lead with compassion and emotional intelligence.

You've had a hand in building and streamlining detection release processes. You definitely know your way around a Jupyter notebook and you're really good at asking questions using Python. In fact, you’re a storyteller who uses data to inspire action.
