Job Title: Threat Intelligence Researcher

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Adversaries make mistakes and you know how to use these to your advantage.

We have moved beyond the traditional FUD approach of security and depend on data for analysis. Rumors and speculation don’t protect our customers, and that’s something we take very seriously. Put simply: data or it didn’t happen. However, data is all well and good, but it’s just sitting there doing nothing. Without intelligence and interpretation, we’re just filling up disks. While the storage companies are more than happy to sell us petabytes of spindles, we are driven to make something of this data. We need someone to join our team that lives, breathes, eats, and sleeps hunting for bad things in said data.

The ideal candidate will be a star at digging through multiple sources of data and intelligence to identify what matters to our organization, our customers, and our stakeholders.

Salesforce.com has one of the best Information Security teams in the world and growing this piece of the business is a top priority! Our Information Security teams work hand in hand with the business to ensure the highest security around all of our applications. With our focus on Trust, we collect terabytes per day of interesting security data. The Security Researcher will help the business identify threats and determine courses of action to help protect our customers from all types of threats. The threat landscape has changed from ‘if’ to ‘when,’ and we’re building a team that lives in this new reality.

Required skills:

  • You have first-hand knowledge of how advanced adversaries operate and their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs).
  • Experience conducting and correlating threat research using OSINT, incident response engagement data, and proprietary tools, performing threat modeling, and producing intelligence threat assessments.
  • You have an understanding of all existing and emerging threats to an organization spanning multiple industries and threat profiles.
  • Strong experience with real-world adversarial tooling.
  • A capable communicator, you are able to engage others in the business at multiple levels to translate threat research into actionable recommendations to shape the business.
  • A creative mindset and a desire to challenge the status quo, you keep your eye on the end goal whilst considering different paths to get there.
  • Data at scale excites you and other people can read your code (no, really).
  • Sound knowledge of networking protocols.
  • Active participation in threat intel sharing groups.
  • The ability to operate in an autonomous manner, driving the delivery of projects and deliverables with minimal oversight.
  • You’re a team player and thrive on your interactions with others, taking pride in collective success.
  • The ability to work as a part of a globally distributed team, contributing to discussions via a video call or chat room.

Desired skills:

  • Hands-on analysis of live attackers with endpoint or network artifacts.
  • Experience with hunting/IR tools used for host and network analysis.
  • Ideally, you’ve done all of the above at scale. We’re not a startup.
  • Experience in an offensive security.
  • Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in related degree or equivalent work experience
  • Salesforce.com, Force.com and Heroku experience (hey, we like our own Champagne).

We are the fastest growing of the top 10 enterprise software companies, and this level of growth equals incredible opportunities to grow a career at Salesforce. Together, with our whole Ohana (Hawaiian for \"family\") made up of our employees, customers, partners, and communities, we are working to improve the state of the world.
