When you join Verizon

Verizon is one of the world's leading providers of technology and communications services, transforming the way we connect across the globe.

Here, we have the ability to learn and grow at the speed of technology, and the space to create within every role. Together, we are moving the world forward - and you can too. Dream it. Build it. Do it here.

What you’ll be doing...

In an effort to customize and drive greater value out of the Managed Security Services and Vulnerability Management Services, Verizon clients have the ability to add additional Support via a Client Security Engineer (CSE). The Client Security Engineer (CSE) is an integral part of the managed security solution. Our CSEs partner with the customer’s network and security architects to create security designs based on best practices and customized to meet the customer security policies. They will ensure that new designs support appropriate capacity levels and then provide ongoing capacity management though-out the design life cycle. The CSE is tasked with lifecycle ownership of the environment and works closely with Security Operations Center and back office MSS teams to provide 3rd and/or 4th level operational support, problem resolution, and identify production pain points. As part of the solution, CSE can be engaged to provide proactive project proposals based on capacity monitoring and operational pain points. All security designs are created to support SLA and are therefore optimized to support business continuity. Where possible, we will also look for opportunities to consolidate infrastructure to reduce cost and/or dedicated lanes built for high priority applications. Our CSE have extensive experience with complex designs including those associated with the wide variety of vendor platforms supported by MSS today. You will be creating technically sound security designs that are compliant with the customer’s security policies, and manageable from the 24x7 SOC. Also responsible for maintaining standards, CPE, and version control for custom MSS engagements. You will be conducting requirements mapping, consulting, project response, level of effort determination, equipment specification, and implementation recommendations and guidance. Proactively generate proposals for recommended, corrective, courses of action based on problem management or RCA reports. You will provide 3rd or 4th level Operations Support.
