Everyday, you will be working with different clients and partners to help them deploy our product by guiding, mentoring and providing them with all the best practices.

To thrive in this role, you must be a team player, ready to learn and have good relationship with the customer.

About the Team:

Joining our team means solving problems that matter—securing over one million workloads globally and stopping cyberattacks and ransomware from spreading into cyber disasters.

We are in a unique position from other security companies in that we don’t have 10s or 100s of products to support. When you engage with a client, you will build strong relationships based on expertise from a knowledgeable team that supports you with a precise and proven product portfolio. That, combined with being a Zero Trust Leader, creates a customer-base that is incredibly loyal and seeking a true partnership—our NPS score is 87, our CSat is 4.8/5 and rising. We do everything we can to make our clients successful.

Key Responsibilities:

  • You will act as a subject matter expert on the Illumio product set, assisting the client with the integration of Illumio Core into their environment and ensuring the Illumio deployment is in a healthy state.

  • Completion of required project admin documentation, such as Time Sheets and weekly reporting.


  • Strong customer first mindset and willingness to go beyond and above to achieve customer satisfaction.

  • Thorough understanding of network flows, protocols, and application related security controls.

  • Experience with Linux platforms, especially CentOS/Red Hat (the actual type of Linux is not that important, but most of the work would be on Red Hat.).

  • Working knowledge of Windows server platforms. PowerShell knowledge would be a plus.

  • Strong problem-solving skills with the ability to assess issues with unfamiliar technology.

  • Ability to thrive in an environment with new and evolving technology.

  • Strong client facing and conflict management skills.
