    Default Job Opening - Pre-Sales Engineer (Security)

    I've talked to a few people on here about roles in the past so I figured I'd pass on an interesting opportunity! Last year, I decided to make the jump from a technical role to be an SE for an established security company. I was hesitant at first (going from a lead SOC role to sales!?) but it's been an awesome experience so far and it really allows you to build your brand/establish yourself in the space. I won't give away too much in this initial post, but if you...
    • Have deep technical security experience (general, product suite is broad so not looking for anything specific) and an interest in being an SE, OR
    • Have prior experience as an SE and technical IT experience in a related field (systems, network, development, etc..)
    ...please reach out! I understand there aren't many SE's here, but welcome all conversations given you meet one of the two requirements above as this is not an entry-level role. Remote work is available for the right candidate, but keep in mind you'd be supporting a majority of the east coast (alongside me) with up to ~25% travel or more if you like traveling.

    Nice!

    Love where I'm working now, but this is exactly how I intend to land my next job. Either face-to-face word of mouth, a phone call, or a private message. No mass filling out job application web portals for me. This is the way to do it.
