Working with the eBay Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) you will have the opportunity to build innovative solutions to identify and mitigate information-security threats.  You will work independently to creatively solve complex security problems in a heterogeneous environment.  You will help us to expand our threat intelligence research platform:  expanding raw intelligence sources, providing deep-web research, and crunching data to understand the current threat landscape.

  • Communication – Explaining complex security topics to the layperson.

  • Scripting – We like to automate the boring stuff.
  • Collaboration – Working cross-functionally to drive projects to completion.

You should also be curious about:

  • Big Data – Hadoop and data-science.  Lots of data to understand and use to build intelligence.
  • Reverse Engineering – Static and dynamic analysis techniques.
  • Risk Analysis – Taking a vulnerability in a particular environment and understanding the practical associated risk.
  • Incident Response – Getting people to do the right thing in the middle of a fire-fight.
