About the job

Described as an “unstoppable freight train” in Forbes magazine’s 2018 listing of upcoming mega trends, automation is already disrupting industries as diverse as transportation and manufacturing. Cyber criminals are surfing the trend as well, increasingly relying on automated tools to compromise and destroy data. Facing a pervasive and ongoing global shortage of cybersecurity talent, technology and risk leaders are increasingly turning to automation to accelerate operations and expand the capabilities of their teams. Unfortunately, many enterprises lack the resources to succeed in deploying and scaling automation for their security teams.

TalonX is a tech-enabled cybersecurity services company founded in 2019. Its founders are experienced cybersecurity professionals who previously held leadership roles in several of the world's leading cybersecurity consulting firms. They founded Cambrian in response to the overwhelming market need for better services in security automation.

TalonX plans, designs, implements, tests, deploys and supports cybersecurity automation solutions using existing automation tools (e.g., SOAR, RPA) and company-proprietary solutions and methods.

TalonX is looking for talented cybersecurity professionals who will deliver cybersecurity automation design and implementation projects for its Fortune 1000 clients. Additionally, cybersecurity engineers will develop the cybersecurity software and solutions that power Cambrian's "tech-enabled" services methodology.

Early employees will play a key strategic role in helping define the future direction of the company while also receiving competitive salary and benefits and opportunities for company stock options.
