Principal Researcher

Campshires | Sir John Rogerson's Quay | Dublin | Ireland

Your Role:

We are looking for a Principal Researcher for our Intelligence & Publication Research team. Tenable’s I&P Research team conducts and publishes research into topics around vulnerability discovery, vulnerability management, risk management, and threat intelligence and is spear-heading the development of emerging risk and vulnerability analysis approaches.

We have a mandate that includes acting as the source and custodians of Tenable Intelligence, and contributing to asset and vulnerability detection signatures, research and development of next generation cyber exposure algorithms, and of course primary vulnerability, threat, and security research. We are like a think tank within Tenable Research.

Embedded in a large team of  reverse engineers, zero day and vulnerability researchers, data scientists, and software engineers, you will be collaborating with diverse subject matter experts and stakeholders to help make Tenable the go to source on all things Vulnerability and Cyber Exposure.

If you are passionately curious and can’t shut up about about vulnerabilities, exploits, 0day’s, darknet economics or how to communicate risk to non-technical people, this will be the role for you.

Your Opportunity:

  • Identifying and developing interesting research ideas and studies on the topics of threat & vulnerability management, risk management and quantification, and related and adjacent cyber security topics
  • Provide strategic input and drive aspects of Tenable Research’s intelligence roadmap.
  • Deliver and tailor research to meet Tenable Research’s business goals and timelines.
  • Coordinate with diverse stakeholders across and outside of the business, to develop various aspects of the research development and publication lifecycle.
  • Directly authors research content and contributes to more significant team efforts.
  • Collaborate with 3rd parties (e.g. academia/industry) to meet specific research goals.
  • Presents primary research in webinars, and at key events and conferences.
  • Confidently communicate complex and technical security topics to a broad range of audiences at varying levels of knowledge.
  • Co-define the intelligence and publication strategy for Tenable Research.
  • Provide subject matter expertise to various internal teams.
  • Working autonomously on research projects with minimal supervision within a small team.

What you'll need:

  • Degree level education or relevant professional experience.
  • Minimum 5-8+ years in a security field.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills.
  • Ideally participation in security industry or community associations, active blogging or in event speaking and security research.
  • Strong project and time management skills.
  • International/domestic travel is a requirement on occasion (<10%).

We’re committed to promoting Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) at Tenable - through all equal employment opportunity laws and regulations at the international, federal, state and local levels.
