Compensation Range: $120,000 to $150,000 base plus bonus and equity

 

What We Do: 

Founded in 2015 as a fully remote company by former NSA cyber operators, Huntress was built on a simple premise: to force hackers to earn every inch of their access. 

Today’s cyber-attacks aren’t limited to large organizations with the security tools that can ward off threats. Hackers don't discriminate and will find a way to penetrate any vulnerability in any size business, which is why Huntress focuses on protecting those small to midsize businesses that make up the backbone of our economy.

Huntress stops hidden threats that sneak past preventive security tools by utilizing our award-winning security platform and expert human threat hunters through dynamic products including Managed EDR, MDR for Microsoft 365, and Managed Security Awareness Training.

Join the hunt and help us stop hackers in their tracks!

Do you enjoy researching the latest techniques in adversary tradecraft? Do you thrive in large datasets with insights into billions of processes and thousands of unique applications across millions of endpoints? Would you like to weaponize targeted and tested detection content to disrupt hacker campaigns across 2.5 million endpoints? If so, the Huntress Detection Engineering position is for you!

Join a team of motivated and proactive detection engineers ready to delve into all manners of adversary tradecraft, tools, and behaviors to secure the 99% of businesses below the enterprise security poverty line. You will serve as the core of our service delivery by creating detection content, evaluating our capabilities, and collaborating internally to improve our products and services to secure our partner and customer networks.

You will write, test, and validate custom detection content, delve into the latest intelligence, parse data, consult with security operations, assist in threat hunting and purple team engagements, analyze data on a massive scale, and generally do whatever it takes to solve issues quickly, effectively, and permanently.

  • Provide support to the Security Operations Center concerning detection review, mentorship, and triage assistance in the scope of creating new or improving our existing detection logic

What You Bring To The Team:  

  • At least 4 years of experience conducting incident response, triage, forensics, and analysis
  • Experience with common malware families and methods adversaries use to compromise and maintain access to victim networks
  • At least 2 years of conducting detection engineering to include detection writing, tuning, and testing of produced logic
  • Experience with common endpoint and network data including working with Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) tools
  • Experience with MITRE ATT&CK matrix, SIGMA, Yara, Atomic Red Team, and Elasticsearch/Kibana- all required. 
  • Experience with incident response preferred.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
