Cyber Security Analyst

Ultimate Software is looking for individuals who are passionate about Security! Do you stay up at night thinking about vulnerabilities and attack scenarios? Do you enjoy working with a team of software security professionals to creatively secure and maintain an enterprise product? If so, Ultimate Software needs you!

As a Cybersecurity Analyst, you will be part of the security operations center team working with incidents as they come in.
