Do you enjoy data analysis? Do you love spotting trends and patterns in analytics that no one else can?   Are you technical, but articulate, and excited about sharing your findings? Would you like to know that your work is contributing to a greater mission with global impact?  How would you like to do this from the comfort of your own home? Dragos has an opportunity for a Senior Data Science Engineer in Test to join our growing team of talented Engineers making great contributions to our mission of Safeguarding Civilization!  As a Senior Data Engineer in Test, you will be working with cutting-edge open source and proprietary IDS tools to analyze, validate, and ensure our platform stays several steps ahead of the bad guys.
