A successful FireEye/Mandiant Red Team manager should possess a deep understanding of both information security and computer science and have experience leading a team of highly technical red teamers. They should understand advanced Red Team concepts such as performing covert operations against complex networks while remaining entirely undetected, advanced application manipulation, and basic programming concepts. FireEye/Mandiant Red Team managers are expected to be as technical as the consultants they manage and will assist on the most difficult engagements. A typical engagement could be breaking into a segmented secure zone at a Fortune 500 bank, reverse engineering an application and encryption method in order to gain access to sensitive data, all without being detected. If you can operate at scale while remaining stealthy, identify and abuse misconfigurations in network infrastructure, and manage a team of highly skilled, technical individuals, then this is the job for you.
FireEye/Mandiant Red Team managers are the lead project managers for all offensive engagements. This includes scoping prospective engagements, managing team metrics, establishing quarterly goals team growth, conducting performance reviews and 1:1 meetings, scheduling resources for projects, managing multiple projects from kickoff to completion, and delivering executive out-briefs. Managers are vital to the project lifecycle and must be able to deliver successful projects with little to no oversight.
