Job Description

We are looking for a Business Analyst to join the ThreatConnect Engineering Team. Cyber threats are ever present and constantly evolving, leaving major companies all over the world at risk. This is where ThreatConnect steps in. So if you’re interested in having a real impact on the security landscape of these companies by working on an intelligent innovative product, this might be the role for you.

Job descriptions are by nature, extremely specific. While it may seem like we’re looking for a very specific candidate, we encourage you to apply if: you have an insatiable passion for learning new products, designing intelligent solutions, and love seeing your hard work come to life for our users.


About You

You crave knowledge and experience. You’re the kind of person who looks for opportunities to learn new technologies and gain knowledge. Once you finish one task you are ready to gain experience from the next.

You are a great communicator. You are comfortable speaking with stakeholders that have a variety of backgrounds: engineers, security analysts, and customers alike. The medium doesn’t matter, slide decks and written functional requirements are all just a way to make sure we’re able to find the signal in the noise the right way.

You are detail-oriented. You’re the kind of person who won’t just close a tab and say “that’s probably close enough.” You naturally try to optimize solutions to problems in your life. You prefer your requirements to read like a bulletproof set of rules to a game, rather than buzzword soup. You like thinking through the corner cases of a dataset to figure out where the landmines might be hidden before you step on them.

You are a tinkerer. As a person you love to build new skills and get excited about new subject matter. You relish the idea of applying your skills to other facets of your life outside of work. Learning is a constant for you, where any problem without an immediate solution is just an opportunity to grow and master something new.

You get restless when things get “stagnant”. We’re looking to do better than just getting more requirements; we want the right requirements. You want our products to be invaluable and help make our users more efficient. When the game changes beneath your feet, you’re excited to start running in a new direction.
