WatchGuard has and will continue to develop solutions to combat ever changing cyber-threats.  Join WatchGuard in this fight to keep our customer’s safe from the perils of the internet.
About the Position
The WatchGuard SOC, operated by seasoned cybersecurity experts armed with security analytics, industry-leading machine learning/AI, and threat intelligence, keeps our MSP customers safe. The team constantly monitors, hunts, detects, and contains threats lurking in their endpoints and networks around the clock while assessing their attack surface to strengthen security posture and improve their resiliency to threats.
The SOC Architect position will play a key role in expanding WatchGuard’s new Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that is backed by our SOC team.
We are seeking an experienced System Architect with strong background in designing Security Operations Center (SOC) and other managed services infrastructures. As a key member of our team, you will play a critical role in designing, implementing, and maintaining robust infrastructure to facilitate our SOC Analysts & Threat Hunters giving an excellent, scalable, and efficient MDR service.
This role will report directly to the Director of WG Labs, and will work very closely with the SOC manager, people from the product area such as Market Owners, Project Managers, Product Owners, etc., and the engineering managers of the different platforms and systems that serve the SOC business.
The ideal candidate must have an excellent knowledge of modern technologies, be able to think out of the box, view the global picture to accommodate the product vision with the SOC platform requirements, strategic thinking, and have strong communication and interpersonal skills.
A day in the life
An architect begins their day by reviewing system requirements with stakeholders. This may include meetings with product managers, developers, and other architects to discuss the needs of the system and how they can best be implemented. They then create architectural designs that outline how the system will be built. Once the design has been established, the architect works closely with the developers to ensure that the system is being built according to the design. This can include reviewing the code and mentoring developers to help them understand the architecture.
Throughout the day, architects may face technical challenges that require innovative solutions. This may involve identifying and resolving performance issues, ensuring system reliability, and implementing security measures. A crucial aspect of their role is communication. They must be able to clearly explain their design decisions to stakeholders and work effectively with team members to implement these decisions.
The field of technology is constantly evolving, so as an architect, you must keep up with the latest trends and emerging technologies. This may involve reading industry publications, attending conferences, and conducting independent research.
In addition to day-to-day tasks, a Software Systems Architect must also think strategically about the future of the system. This may involve planning for future iterations of the system and considering how current design decisions will affect the system in the future.
This role requires a combination of technical expertise, communication skills, and strategic thinking. It’s a challenging but rewarding role that has a significant impact on the success of MDR services.
