    • Create threat detection signatures to detect adversary activities, protecting Dragos customers worldwide
    • Support joint-hunt operations with other Dragos operational groups, partners, and customers
    • Deliver industry-leading perspective through conference presentations, webinars, white papers, and blogs

    • Comprehensive benefits plan (medical, dental, vision, disability, life insurance, 401K with match)
    • Equity at Dragos is quickly growing and the total compensation under-represents the future growth and refresh program. This will be discussed on the first call with the Dragos recruiter.
