Job Description

The Mandiant Incident Response team is seeking a manager to manage large, client-facing projects and train/mentor other security consultants. In this role, you will use your deep understanding of both existing and emerging threat actors, as well as experience identifying rapidly changing tools, tactics and procedures of attackers. You must be able to see the big picture, understanding evolving attacker behavior and motivations, participate and manage large client-facing projects, and help to train/mentor other security consultants. The successful candidate will possess sound business acumen, strong consulting skills, current technical skills and be adept in leading multiple projects under tight deadlines. If you are interested in investigating computer crimes and breaches that make the headlines – and many more that don’t, then this opportunity is for you.

What You Will Do:

  • Manage consulting engagements, with a focus on incident response and forensics. Provide both subject matter expertise and project management experience to serve as the “point person” for engagements
  • Recommend and document specific counter-measures and mitigating controls
  • Assist with scoping prospective engagements, participating in engagements from kickoff through full remediation, and mentoring less experienced staff
  • Identify, market, and develop new business opportunities
  • Articulate Mandiant’s capabilities in marketing discussions, proposal efforts, and capability briefings
  • Develop comprehensive and accurate reports and presentations for both technical and executive audiences
  • Utilize Mandiant technology to conduct large-scale investigations and examine host and network-based sources of evidence.
  • Supervise staff, provide feedback and coaching, and grow their technical and consulting skills
  • Improve Mandiant’s business processes and incident response methodologies.
