What We Do:

Hackers are constantly evolving, exploiting new vulnerabilities and dwelling in small business environments—until they meet Huntress.

Huntress enables IT providers and resellers to stop hidden threats that sneak past preventive security tools. Founded by former NSA Cyber Operators—and backed by a team of ThreatOps researchers—we help our partners protect their customers and take the fight directly to hackers.

When working at Huntress, you’ll join a team of experts committed to transparency, honesty, and going above and beyond to do the right thing. It’s an exciting time for our company as we continue expanding our platform and preparing for new growth and success.

What you'll do day to day:

  • Analyze data for potential threats, adding human perspective to our automation
  • Dig into newly identified malware to provide customers with the appropriate details to remediate and leverage the knowledge gained for future automation
  • Create new “detectors” using indicators discovered through malware analysis and security research
  • Help customers by responding to support tickets related to security incidents, occasionally providing assistance with containment and remediation
  • Continually grow your knowledge of internal procedures, the Huntress product, the threat landscape, and customer environments
  • Contribute to our collaboratively mentored team (we're all here to make each other better!)
  • Occasionally writing blogs related to malware incidents we have discovered

We are looking for someone who:

  • Located in Hawaii and able to work remotely

  • Has experience with scripting (such as PowerShell, Python, Bash, PHP, JavaScript, or Ruby)
  • Has excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Has a good understanding of how preventive security solutions work
  • Isn’t afraid to pick up the phone to help a customer
  • Is excited to join a growing team and contribute to the growth of the company
  • Has a strong desire to keep the world safe from cyber criminals

Ideal, but not required:
