On Being An Analyst or WHO Are We Hiring?

By Anton Chuvakin | April 17, 2013 | 0 Comments


So, we are hiring (UK role, AU role), but WHO are we hiring? Job reqs don’t always do this justice, so let me explain it in plain terms. Think of this as a “prospect profile” for our team here.

In no particular order, we need somebody who:

  1. Can analyze and structure information and see patterns and trends in various types of often imperfect and noisy data
  2. Can write/present well about information security technology
  3. Is known in the industry (maybe due to your presentations, a blog, books, or whatever excellent work that you have done)
  4. Is a doer, not a talker (you will need to do a lot of talking, but it needs to be based on doing!)

What does that mean? 

You might be an enterprise security architect, a security vendor technical product manager or a strategist (or “an evangelist” – but  one connected to reality!). You might also be a consultant now, preferably one dealing with technical issues. Hey, you can even be an analyst at another firm (maybe one frustrated with too much talking and not enough architecting, implementing and operationalizing).

These roles may make you a good Gartner for Technical Professionals analyst. Clear now?  Go apply while the roles are open!
