Principal Adversary Hunter – Dragos Threat Intelligence


Have you spent time hunting threats inside and outside networks? Developed and tracked activity groups? Want to use those skills to hunt those who threaten civilization? Want to catch and expose threats targeting power plants, water, manufacturing systems, and other industrial control systems? Dragos threat intelligence works to discover these threats, develop innovative analytics for detection, support investigations and incident response, and provide customers with world-class situational awareness. Unlike many other teams with a broader mission, we focus solely on operational threats to industrial control networks; this gives our analysts the time and space necessary to do world-class research and intelligence on the most advanced and significant threats in the world. Most analysts as they progress in their career are required to increase their scope thereby losing many critical skills – this is an opportunity for experienced analysts to drop back down into a highly technical and specific area of critical importance becoming one of the few ICS threat hunters in the world. A rare opportunity for many.

At Dragos, we are not traditional intelligence analysts; we are hunters of evil which threatens the functions of civil society. We are dedicated to the idea that intelligence not properly communicated is not intelligence at all. We support our Dragos Platform through vulnerability analysis, threat intelligence, and behavioral analytics. We support Dragos Professional Services through intelligence support to incident response, assessment, and managed threat hunting.

Dragos is primarily located in Maryland and our Threat Intelligence team is mainly remote.

This is a principal or senior-level position. This is not an entry-level position for inexperienced analysts or those seeking to transition hunting. Prior hunting experience against advanced and persistent threats is a requirement.
