Want in? As Verizons media unit, our brands like Yahoo, TechCrunch and HuffPost help people stay informed and entertained, communicate and transact, while creating new ways for advertisers and partners to connect. With technologies like XR, AI, machine-learning, and 5G, were transforming media for tomorrow, too. We're creators and coders, dreamers and doers creating what's next in content, advertising and technology.

When you impact millions of people every day, you become a large target for adversaries of all types within all types of technology. Our role is to keep our users safe and make Verizon Media one of the safest places on the Internet.

We are the information security team at Verizon Media; known as \" The Paranoids \".

Specifically, we are the FIRE Team (Forensics, Incident Response and Engineering) within The Paranoids, similar in purpose but not your typical Incident Response team. We identify intrusions and secure hosts and networks from security incidents. We hunt, monitor and boot adversaries from our environment using both standard sometimes experimental techniques.

The FIRE team is made up of mostly generalist security practitioners who often fit the description jack/jill of all, master of none. The folks on our team handle anything that comes our way whether that be the latest 0-day, consulting on best-practices or even developing new detections. Our team excels in handling incidents by utilizing our prior experience and knowledge along with the raw talent to solve issues on the fly. Verizon Media has experts in every technology to lean on when we need support, but our team takes the lead for all incidents for all Verizon Media properties and brands. Were seeking hands-on security leaders who work independently and in a team based setting to accomplish The Paranoids overall goals; securing the company and protecting the user!
