Job Description

SOC Engineer - Security Operations Center

Cyber Security is a big deal. It's in the news, growing rapidly, a critical tool for every company, and our specialty.

Imperva is a public company (NASDAQ: IMPV) and leading provider of data and application security solutions that protect business-critical information in the cloud and on-premise. Our customers include leading enterprises, government organizations, SMBs and service providers who rely on Imperva Incapsula to securely deliver their websites and applications at lightning speed.

Why Imperva? We have experienced the following growth and achievements

* Generating $321 million in 2017
* We have over 5,900 customers
* 500 partners in 100+ countries worldwide
* Imperva's Web Application Firewall has been in the Leader's Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 4 straight years
* Imperva Incapsula is a leader in the Forrester Wave for DDoS Services with the highest score in the "current offering" category


The Imperva Incapsula security operations center is a team dedicated for providing first response to security incidents and is focused on the operational aspect of web-application security: analyzing the threat, suggesting direct methods of remediation and mitigation, and actively working to block attacks in real-time.

The scope of activity ranges throughout the layer seven domain, encompassing DoS & DDoS attacks, Brute-Force attacks, Scraping and filtering of unwanted traffic, and also extending into initial analysis and mitigation of application attack vectors, such as XSS, SQLi and Remote code execution.

A complementary aspect of this activity is to handle cases of false positives. The SOC will own the task of investigating the root cause for misfire, suggesting the optimal way to avoid further incidents, and applying changes accordingly when required.

The SOC will work closely with the Imperva support teams, acting as a focal point for security-related events and incidents. It will also have a bi-directional line of communication with the Imperva security team, to allow for sharing findings and information, consultation and maintaining updated knowledge of current policies.

The SOC Engineer

As a SOC team member, the specialist is expected to pose an excellent working knowledge of web application security and current threat landscape, together with an in-depth familiarity of Incapsula's security policies and processes.

The specialist will also maintain proficiency in field related tools and methodologies and is encouraged to expand his knowledge of all security-related matters.

Job Requirements:

* At least one year of hands-on experience in Application or Network security
* Solid knowledge of TCP/IP, HTTP/S, DNS, SSL
* Good understanding of Web Application vulnerabilities and common attack techniques
* Experienced with scripting languages: like python and bash
* Passion for customer success/advocacy
* Excellent communication skills
