  • Respond to and, when appropriate, resolve or escalate security incidents
  • Develop and maintain documentation for security systems and procedures
  • Investigate and resolve security violations by providing postmortem analysis to illuminate the issue, and identify causes, possible solutions, and preventative measures


  • Minimum 4 years of experience as a Security Engineer or equivalent working experience
