Crusoe Energy is on a mission to unlock value in stranded energy resources through the power of computation.

Take a look at what we do! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlt8k71Quqw

We aim to align the long term interests of the climate with the future of global computing infrastructure. As data centers consume an exponentially growing power footprint to deliver technology to all connected devices, we are inspired by making sure that the energy meeting that demand is sourced in an environmentally responsible fashion. Crusoe co-locates mobile data centers with stranded energy resources, like flare gas and underloaded renewables, to deliver low-cost, carbon-negative distributed computing solutions. Crusoe Cloud is a managed cloud services platform powered by stranded energy that enables climate-friendly innovation in computationally intensive fields including artificial intelligence, graphics rendering and computational biology.

About This Role:

This role will initially report to the IT Director and eventually to the SOC Manager. The security engineer will help the IT Director to build the foundations for a SOC (processes as well as re-occurring cadence for audit tasks). This role will also be responsible for implementing, configuring, and operating security platforms needed to perform SOC duties (pen-testing, security policies on various core platforms, endpoint security). And finally, the security engineer will be holistically supporting all IT Security needs for corporate security on Day 1. Over time, as the security team grows and the SOC matures, the team's CyberSecurity coverage & responsibilities will also expand beyond into other business units (production).

A Day In The Life:

  • Monitor and track various security alerts from each core platform, including:

    • Logs in the Log Aggregation platform.

    • Endpoint security with XDR detections and remediation measures.

    • Email security alerts, intelligence gathering, and flagged incidents.

    • Alerts and remediation related to MDM, SSO, and other essential platforms.

  • Preventative Measures:

    • Management of endpoint and infrastructure patch updates.

    • Periodic testing for failover procedures, data restoration, and validation.

    • Conduct software and hardware audits to identify unauthorized or problematic components.

    • Utilize reports and intelligence from various security platforms to maintain user base safety and awareness.

    • Manage credential rotation as needed; propose and implement improvements.

  • Security Policies:

    • Review, configure, and manage policies across all business applications and platforms.

    • Oversee and ensure the security integrity of platforms such as IdP, XDR, MDM, etc.
