At F5, we strive to bring a better digital world to life. Our teams empower organizations across the globe to create, secure, and run applications that enhance how we experience our evolving digital world. We are passionate about cybersecurity, from protecting consumers from fraud to enabling companies to focus on innovation.

Everything we do centers around people. That means we obsess over how to make the lives of our customers, and their customers, better. And it means we prioritize a diverse F5 community where each individual can thrive.

About F5:

Life at F5 is never dull. We are constantly identifying industry trends and disruptions and innovating to get ahead of future customer needs. We are passionate about securing our application services for our customers, which include the Global and Fortune 100, federal and local government services, and many others worldwide.

But our success isn’t driven solely by what we do. We also care deeply about how we do it. At F5, our culture is how we live, every single day. And it’s producing extraordinary results – not only for our customers, but also for our employees. We understand that your life is about more than just work, so we’re committed to a culture that supports your whole life. For this role, we are offering a choice of fully remote or hybrid work arrangement with F5’s exceptional benefits.

Position Summary:

F5’s Security Intelligence Center is seeking an experienced, curious, and highly professional individual who is looking to take on new challenges as a senior data analyst in our Threat Analytics & Reporting team.

This role has an engaging mix of data analytics and customer/business engagement. It involves big data analysis and presentations to international executive audiences, hosting webinars, co-authoring industry papers, working on development of internal tools, and assisting the Sales team by presenting data-based threat insights to prospective and long-time customers.

Our team is always interested in expanding our toolsets, analytical capabilities, and domain knowledge. When we’re not engaged in customer-focused work, we research, prototype, and develop new tools that increase the breadth and depth of our analysis. We are looking for new team members who are interested in using and expanding their skills and areas of interest to do the same with us.

If you have a passion for deriving actionable insights from complex big data sets; love to apply techniques from information analysis, statistics, and other fields; and want to become a subject matter expert (SME) in protecting web and mobile platforms from fraud and automation, then we’d love to talk with you.

· Provide thought leadership to existing and prospective clients on how to better secure themselves and their users by sharing learnings from other Bot Defense deployments and research.

Internal Responsibilities:

· Become a subject matter expert through research, exposure to F5’s proprietary data, and collaboration with internal teams.

· Assist with producing blog articles, hosting webinars, and providing data for marketing outreach and research papers.

· Work cross-functionally to guide the future of our analytics products and create new internal tools and innovations.

· Speak virtually or in-person at industry and internal conferences to share results of analysis and research.

· Provide insights and collateral to help drive and guide sales team discussions.
