  • You have past experience performing threat hunting and/or evaluation in companies with cross-functional security teams, preferably using common industry frameworks such as STRIDE, ATT&CK, or DREAD
  • You can write scripting and basic tooling for filling gaps around integrations and automation, preferably using Python
