What You’ll Need

We’re looking for a Security Engineer with 5 years of professional experience in a zero trust environment. Previous experience at a software company is required, with a preference for B2B or B2G experience. The ideal candidate is coming from an organization with a mature zero trust strategy and can help implement best practices for zero trust at Mark43. Familiarity with the following tools is helpful – Zscaler, Azure AD / ENTRA, AWS Identity, Auth0/Okta.

People who thrive on our team also tend to share the following characteristics:

  • Humble, open, and curious.
  • Attentive, active listeners. You’re interested in what others have to say and illustrate your interest with your actions.
  • Resilience. You do not shy away from challenging work and you proactively help your team solve problems.
  • Enthusiastic collaborators. You understand that the best outcomes are achieved through shared ownership, and seek to spread knowledge and expand participation rather than restrict it.
  • Comfortable with uncertainty. You know that sometimes problems and situations can’t be simplified or fully understood, and are at ease working within this type of haziness.
  • Passionate about personal growth. You view mistakes as opportunities for learning, and want to grow as a designer, colleague, and person.
  • Eager to help others. You look for ways to provide support for more junior members of the team and develop cooperative working relationships

It is likely that the ideal candidate will have a Bachelors or Masters degree and relevant industry certifications. However we are a mission driven organization and we understand that experience is the greatest teacher, as such, individuals with information/cybersecurity backgrounds and relevant service experience (civil or defense) are encouraged to apply.
