Job Description
 
Solidus seeks an experienced Network Security Analyst to contribute to analysis of enterprise defense activities. The candidate will apply judgment learned from experience in computer security incident response to identify and encode incident records from partner organizations' incident tickets, other logs, and unstructured data. Some light scripting will be required to automate the portions of the task that can be automated. The candidate will interface with partner organizations to understand their security posture and how it impacts the research effort.

Projects are carried out by small, focused, cooperative teams that succeed together by participating in all phases of technical solution development: problem analysis, innovative solution design, system architecture, solution prototyping and field-testing, and final technology transfer to DoD and intelligence community sponsors or industry. We are computer scientists, software and hardware engineers, mathematicians, machine learning researchers and practitioners, systems analysts, and security architects who firmly believe we can make a difference in the security of the nation.

- Active Secret Clearance
- MS plus 3 years minimum experience, or BS plus 5 years minimum experience
- CISSP certification
- Experience with security incident handling using a SIEM (e.g. Splunk) in a SOC/NOC environment

- Experience using Microsoft Excel for simple data filtering and display

Additionally Desired:
