In our employer insights series, Tom Keating, managing director of engineering at FireEye Dublin, gives us an insight into what it’s like to work for this leading provider of next-generation protection against advanced cybersecurity threats.
FireEye, which acquired Mandiant in 2013, currently employs more than 20 people at its office in Dublin city centre. This team comprises people with a variety of skill sets from different parts of Ireland and Europe, but Keating is seeking more engineers of all types to join them.
Whether you’re a software engineer, quality engineer or localisation engineer, the key skill required by FireEye is problem solving. “It’s so dynamic, the cybersecurity side – technologies change, methods change – and I need people who can adapt with that and come up with new, inventive ways,” said Keating.
Primarily, Keating is looking for candidates with a background in computer science or software engineering, though he says there are people working for FireEye who have transitioned from other disciplines. The common trait they all share, however, is a passion for technology.
