We are currently seeking an experienced engineer to manage and enhance the vulnerability management program across Lucid. In this role, you'll take a risk-based approach to identifying, prioritizing, and remediating vulnerabilities in systems and applications. Rather than simply clicking through scan results and alerts from commercial tools, you’ll work closely alongside other teams to mature the overall vulnerability management program, thoroughly understand findings, and proactively protect assets.

The Role:

  • Design and improve upon vulnerability management processes and workflows.
  • Spearhead improvements to company-wide patching and configuration management practices.
  • Partner with software teams to assess and remediate vulnerabilities in applications.
  • Balance concurrent projects with ongoing operational responsibilities.
  • Contribute to other aspects of the security program such as systems hardening, risk management, and compliance.
  • Stay informed on recent security trends and vulnerabilities, and proactively apply this knowledge to reduce risk.
  • Take a metrics-driven approach to remediation and problem-solving.


  • 4+ years of prior security experience, including hands-on experience in vulnerability management.
  • Willingness to challenge the status quo.
  • Demonstrated track record of leading or coordinating major security projects.
  • Experience with common vulnerability scanners and tools (Tenable/Nessus, Rapid7, Qualys, etc.), including configuration and architecture rather than just operations.
  • Solid understanding of major operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux) as well as configuration management for these systems at scale.
  • Reasonable knowledge of TCP/IP concepts.
  • Ability to understand, interpret, and apply common security standards and frameworks such as NIST 800-53, CIS, PCI DSS, and ISO-27001-2.

  • Education:
  • Bachelor's degree or higher in relevant discipline (cybersecurity, information systems, computer science) or equivalent work experience.

  • Advantageous:
  • Experience managing vulnerabilities in cloud environments such as AWS and Azure.
  • Proven understanding of real-world attacker techniques and the various ways in which different vulnerabilities can be exploited.
  • Experience in at least one major scripting language (Bash, Python, PowerShell, etc.)
  • Understanding of security concepts specific to industrial/OT environments.
  • Relevant certifications are a plus (CISSP, OSCP, SANS/GIAC).
