As the customer-facing role and voice of Red Canary’s day-to-day security interactions with our customer we play a myriad of roles.


We act as a trusted partner and an extension of our customers’ security teams to help them to understand and mature their overall security programs. When threats are detected in customer environments, we help by taking ownership of the customer's success and providing any resources they need to remediate and recover.

  • Augment the automated detection of Red Canary’s technical stack with human driven hunting, to identify anomalous behaviors within customer environments, and use your hunting results to drive innovation of Red Canary’s detection capabilities
  • Proactively mentor other Threat Hunters by sharing knowledge, skills and experiences and helping them to grow and develop their own skills

What You'll Bring

  • 6+ years of working in the cyber security industry
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with the ability to clearly convey complex technical topics and findings to others
  • Ability to successfully engage within high-pressure environments and build trust with customers
  • Technical proficiency in Information Security controls including system-level controls, network controls, and security operations, across Endpoint, Cloud, SaaS, and Identity
  • Advanced knowledge of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities and one or more EDR products
  • Foundational knowledge of Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) processes
  • Ability to independently investigate and analyze alerts and threats for anomalous, suspicious, or malicious activity in a corporate environment and support remediation efforts
  • Ability to independently and proactively search for potential cyber threats, including developing search criteria
  • Desire to mentor others as they advance their technical skills

Targeted base salary: $124,000 - $150,000 + bonus eligibility and equity depending on experience.
