Description and Requirements

From core to cloud to edge, BMC delivers the software and services that enable over 10,000 global customers, including 84% of the Forbes Global 100, to thrive in their ongoing evolution to an Autonomous Digital Enterprise.
Looking for a technical leader who wants to use their operational cybersecurity experience to design modern security software solutions. In this role you will work directly with the world's best mainframe penetration testers to learn how to hack and defend the server known as the "Backbone of the Digital Enterprise" - a name well earned by the system running critical business applications for 96 of the 100 world's largest banks, 9 of the 10 largest insurance companies, and 23 of the 25 largest retailers in the US.

To accomplish this mission you will work alongside a dynamic, cross-functional team with a start-up mentality and the financial backing of a major software company. We don't need a mainframe expert for this role, but a security expert with enterprise SOC experience and a passion for defending some of the largest organizations in the world. If you’re the kind of person who loves learning about new topics, exploring outside of your comfort zone, painting from a white canvas, and working with like-minded individuals, BMC Software might be the right fit for you.
