What you'll do...

Are you ready to drive the technical vision of a complex, highly focused organization?  An organization which has redefined traditional vulnerability management to the point where it informs the Global InfoSec priorities of the Fortune One and largest company in the world?  Are you ready to bring your skills to a company that embraces and deploys modern technologies like robotics and autonomous vehicles, all in support of making people's lives easier?    

We’re looking for someone who is fluent in current technology and can see its applicability both today and tomorrow.  We want someone who can see problems coming and be ready with an answer before the question is even asked by the rest of the industry. 

  • Can you work cross functionally throughout the InfoSec discipline and evangelize equally for innovation as well as rigor? 
  • Can you work with multiple teams in a specific ecosystem and provide development, design and deployment expertise at several levels simultaneously? 
  • Are you interested in finding the best solution for tomorrow’s needs while helping technical staff meet the requirements of today? 
  • Can you grow technical talent to reach a point where they are the envy of an industry? 

If you are that person then this role is for you!

Your day will include teaching and learning from other technologists across the organization.  One day you may be inventing a way to identify vulnerabilities without any traditional scanning means. The next you might be driving the development of a container scanning solution.  On another day, you might be incorporating empirical risk measurement capabilities with the results of Red Team Campaigns and third-party vendor assessments to determine major InfoSec spend and strategic initiatives.  You may even spend a day collaborating with Infrastructure and InfoSec cloud computing leads to develop a secure deployment strategy for Walmart.   One thing is for sure – you’ll never be bored.

Who are you?

You are a senior technologist who understands vulnerability identification, analysis and mitigation strategies and how to prioritize program goals in a risk informed manner.  You understand the various components of Network and Application Penetration testing, Red Teaming, Cyber Intelligence Operations, Decision Science and Decision Automation.  More importantly, you are able to synthesize the outputs of all of these disciplines into a coherent technical strategy that can be executed both in the long and short term.  You can provide technical mentoring and training for junior technical talent to enable them to grow their careers while contributing significantly to Walmart. You are a creative thinker who can find new ways of solving age-old problems.  You’re not afraid to upset the status quo

Where would we see your biggest strengths?

  • Cloud environment experience
  • Enterprise level integrations
  • Forward thinking solutions
  • Ability to engage in interdisciplinary discussions across a range of environments
  • An Influencing leadership style - leading without direct authority

What do you NEED to have?

  • An inquisitive mind unbound by existing convention.
  • Experience and knowledge of working in a large-scale enterprise / company.
  • Knowledge of cloud security, Risk Analysis, and data science
  • A desire to investigate and evaluate new technologies
  • A logical demeanor

If you’re ready for a challenge. If you’re ready to solve problems that nobody else has ever had.  If you’re ready to find today's boundaries and make plans to exceed them tomorrow. If you have what it takes to lead an industry – then come join our team.
