At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission: protecting our way of life in the digital age by preventing successful cyberattacks. It's not a small goal. It isn't simple either, but we aren't in this for the easy answer. As a company with a foundation in challenging the way things are done, we're looking for innovators with a dedication to best. In return, your career will have a tangible impact - one that's working toward technology that affects every level of society.
Our mission doesn't happen by treading softly - no, it happens by defining an industry. It means building products that haven't been thought of. It means selling products with a solutions mindset. It means supporting the infrastructure of a company that moves at an incredible speed - intentionally - to stay ahead of the world's next cyberthreat.
Our Customer Experience team is all about helping our clients achieve better security through the adoption of security best practices leveraging the Palo Alto Networks platform with a prevention orientation. We are revolutionizing how quickly customers can maximize the value of their security investment, by incorporating an automation mindset, coupled with a methodology focus to help overcome barriers which may be in the way of improving security posture.
The Customer Experience Automation team is responsible for the innovation around the development of tools to help our customers better understand and measure their current prevention posture and alignment to best practices.
The Customer Experience Automation team is seeking a highly talented individual to help continue building and scaling our Best Practice Assessment (BPA) tool. The BPA has been used by thousands of customers and users to identify gaps in their security adoption and improve their alignment to standard methodologies. Usage of this tool is a company priority with executive backing, so you would have the opportunity to make an outsize impact on both the company and our customers.

To stay ahead of the curve, it's critical to know where the curve is, and how to anticipate the changes we're facing. For the fastest growing cybersecurity company, the curve is the evolution of cyberattacks, and the products and services that proactively address them. Our engineering team is at the core of our products - connected directly to the mission of preventing cyberattacks. They are constantly innovating - challenging the way we, and the industry, think about cybersecurity. These engineers aren't shy about building products to solve problems no one has pursued before. They define the industry, instead of waiting for directions. We need individuals who feel comfortable in ambiguity, excited by the prospect of a challenge, and empowered by the unknown risks facing our everyday lives that are only enabled by a secure digital environment.
