Senior Information Security Analyst / Engineer


CENIC connects California to the world — advancing education and research statewide by providing the world-class network essential for innovation, collaboration, and economic growth. This nonprofit organization operates the California Research and Education Network (CalREN), a high-capacity network designed to meet the unique requirements of over 20 million users, including the vast majority of K-20 students together with educators, researchers and other vital public-serving institutions.

CENIC’s Charter Associates are part of the world’s largest education system; they include the California K-12 system, California Community Colleges, the California State University system, California’s Public Libraries, the University of California system, Stanford, Caltech, USC, and Naval Postgraduate School. CENIC also provides connectivity to leading-edge institutions and industry research organizations around the world, serving the public as a catalyst for a vibrant California.


The successful candidate will aid in the advancement of CENIC's security engineering team efforts to provide information security services and support to CENIC and its Charter Associate members. The primary responsibilities of this position are to improve CENIC's security architecture, perform proactive and reactive security analysis, respond to and resolve security incidents and provide technical expertise, especially in the area of network, system and data protection. In addition, participation is expected in all aspects of information security that will further enable the mission of CENIC and its Charter Associates, such as participation in: uncovering computer and network vulnerabilities, reducing the risk incurred by vulnerabilities, infusing new security technologies into CENIC’s security architecture, and promoting a security culture through consulting and training. Solid interpersonal skills and the ability to work effectively in a distributed team environment are a must. Travel within California and some additional US travel may be required.





CENIC has two California offices, the home office in La Mirada and a smaller office in Berkeley. The Senior Information Security Analyst/Engineer will, initially, work out of the La Mirada office with some travel to the other office; if there is a preference for the Bay Area office, this might be accomplished once the security initiative is in place and fully functioning.


Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. CENIC offers a generous benefits package that includes health, dental, vision, and life insurance; liberal vacation, holiday, and sick leave; and employer contributions toward retirement.


CENIC is proud of the diversity of our staff and of those we serve and will not deny employment on the basis of race, national origin, ethnic identification, religion, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, color, or disability; neither will CENIC discriminate against any employees on the basis of the above.
