What It Takes to Be a Senior Security Engineer at Compuquip
The Compuquip Cybersecurity team is a group of dedicated and talented professionals who work hard to protect our customers’ businesses against cybersecurity threats. Our company is a family-owned and operated business that values hard work and rewards results. We especially pride ourselves on treating our people like a close-knit family rather than mere assets. With Compuquip, we know that our employees are the secret to our success, and we treat them accordingly.
In addition to generous benefits packages that include competitive salaries, full healthcare coverage, 25% 401(k) matching, company-sponsored training, and a formal career path development program, we offer the chance to be part of a family that works together to achieve more. Every quarter, we offer team-building and bonding events, such as taking self-defense classes or just going to the golf course to play a few holes.
We are currently on the lookout for talented up-and-comers to join the Compuquip family. We’re especially interested in experienced professionals who have a passion for helping customers protect their businesses against modern security threats to fill our senior security engineer openings.
In particular, we’re looking for people who can work directly with customers to help them resolve their cybersecurity challenges by developing custom security plans based on each customer’s individual needs.
Strong technical skills are, of course, a must—but, strong people skills are just as important for this position. Experience actually working directly with customers and/or executives is a major plus, because a large part of the job will be working with people!
