Data Analyst, Attack Surface job description

What is a company’s “Attack Surface?” Attack Surface refers to all possible internet-facing access points that a bad actor can use to hack into a company’s system.

In this role, you will primarily focus on research analytics. This is a fantastic role if you are trying to break into the exciting field of cybersecurity! Each analyst is responsible for mapping out what parts of an organization are vulnerable and need to be tested for security vulnerabilities. Using various internal and external research techniques, Attack Surface Analysis analysts determine which internet-facing assets belong to a company of interest by investigating those assets' registration information, such as domains, certificates, and IP networks. The analysts focus on a specific company's profile (geographical location, company structure, company naming conventions, historical information, etc.) to narrow a broad scope of probable assets to those linked to the company of interest. A process we call "attack surface discovery."

We expect office-based employees to be in the office four days per week, with one day working from where they choose. We believe being together facilitates casual conversations and those magic moments where we can work on issues and ideas informally. These moments build capability and deepen trusted relationships and allow our people to feel safe in taking risks and being disruptive. Like so many companies, we are working through the details and things could change …. but in general if a role is deemed office-based we want our teams to be together four days per week.

Your Impact

  • Perform attack surface discovery on client internet-facing networks, thoroughly investigating thousands of possible assets and making informed ownership decisions
  • Partner with sales and customer success to answer technical client questions
  • Partner with sales to help explain and demonstrate the use cases of the software to customers
  • Partner closely with engineering teams on refining the attack surface discovery toolset we use
  • Review of technical documentation for training materials, technical marketing collateral, manuals, troubleshooting guides, etc.
  • Participation in on-call duty
Data Analyst, Attack Surface job requirements

Your Experience

  • 2+ years of working experience
  • Conceptual understanding of technical topics (e.g. mathematical concepts)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Shown to have been results-driven and to have thrived in a fast-paced environment
  • Strong ability to operate with autonomy and independence in a remote setting
  • [preferred] Client-facing expertise within sales or customer success
