  • Implement analytics-based rules to enhance and maintain visibility for the Information Security team across endpoint & network activity and audit logs

  • Perform analyses against large data sets to identify potentially malicious behavior and indicators of compromise

  • Perform technical security assessments against internal and external facing systems using open source and commercial tools

  • Implement new security technologies as required to support a dynamic/challenging business environment

  • Understand business needs, Engineering/IT capabilities, and security requirements to ensure a proper balance is maintained

 

Technical Expectations

  • 4+ years experience administering SIEM technologies in global enterprise networks in a highly, technical hands-on environment

  • 6+ years systems (Linux and Windows) or network admin experience

  • Experience building, implementing and tuning SIEM event correlation rules, logic, and content in a large environment to filter out security events associated with known and well-established network behavior, known false positives and/or known errors

  • Experience creating scheduled and ad-hoc reporting with SIEM tools

  • Demonstrated ability to identify security events associated with known and expected network behavior, filter out known false positives and/or known errors

  • Experience hardening and configuring VPNs and other remote access technologies for securing access between endpoints and data center networks

  • Solid understanding of Network Access Control (NAC) concepts applicable to a layered policy-based endpoint connectivity matrix

  • Must be familiar with multi-factor authentication (MFA) methodologies and demonstrate experience integrating MFA into enterprise systems

  • Strong knowledge of networking and web related protocols (e.g., TCP, UDP, IPSEC, HTTP, HTTPS, network routing protocols), open-source command line utilities and scripting languages (Perl, Python, Bash), regulations (PCI, SOX 404, Safe Harbor, GDPR), log management and SIEM solutions (e.g. Splunk, Nitro, Syslog-ng), and network security controls (Routers, Firewalls, Proxies, ACL’s, networking protocols)

  • Experience with computer forensics and investigations

  • Vendor certification(s) in an enterprise SIEM product is a plus

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Alicia

Program Manager, Employee & Community Engagement

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
