Are you an experienced IT Security Engineer and looking for a better opportunity - maybe one where you aren't siloed in one area and can expand your skills and experience while working for a growing organization with a tight knit team?    We are seeking a new IT Security Engineer to join our team to focus on all security technologies.  This role will be a combination of an engineering role and an operational role as well.  On the engineering side, you will investigate and design and implement new network security, data protection, anti-virus, and other security related technologies.   We are primarily a Windows Server shop with some Linux technologies and also have an on premise data center and leverage the Azure cloud as well.   We are looking for someone that has the experience to plan and implement security technologies including SIEM, Cisco IDS, anti-virus, network vulnerability and any other security technologies as needed.   To be considered a good match for this opportunity, you should have:

(1) Strong understanding and experience with securing network security, application security, and Azure cloud infrastructure.
(2) Experienced with security incident response.
(3) Knowledge of disaster recovery, security forensic tools, technologies, and methods.
(4) Awareness of NYCRR, CCPA, and PCI compliances.
(5) Have your CISSP, GIAC or similar certifications.
(6) Must have 5+ years of hands on experience with implementing and managing security solutions, security events analysis, and threat hunting.

Experience Azure cloud from a security stand point would be a plus. 
You will investigate, research and analyze any security related suspicious activities so some experience with forensics would be a plus.

This is a full time employee role and we are 100% remote so for now and possibly ongoing, you can work from your home.   Our offices are in Atlanta.   We offer a great work environment with excellent benefits and we are growing!   If this sounds like something that is a good match for your skills and experience, please apply so we can reach out to you to discuss this new opportunity in more detail.

Candidates will be responsible for following the client's COVID-19 protocols. Please refer to your MATRIX representative for specifics.
