The Protenus Healthcare Compliance Analytics platform is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that ingests robust, unique data feeds to provide visibility into potential patterns of suspicious behavior that may otherwise go unnoticed. Our AI and advanced analytics empower subject matter experts to mitigate and ultimately reduce organizational risk — whether it's an employee improperly accessing patient records, or a clinician diverting medications — in an efficient, accurate, and scalable manner. If the opportunity to thwart these bad actors doesn’t excite you, maybe the opportunity to serve on a team filled with other engineers who do different work than you, and together, you will collaborate and influence the end result of this cutting-edge technology, will do the trick.

As a member of the Security Team, which is responsible for the ongoing security of the Protenus Platform and Corporate assets, the Senior Security Engineer is critical to ensuring Protenus maintains and improves its Security Posture. The Senior Security Engineer works directly with Leadership, Engineering and IT team members to advise, review, and improve the safety and security of all Protenus technologies, in order to protect one of our most important assets: the trust that exists between our company and our customers.

About Protenus

Our HQ is located in the Fells Point area of Baltimore, MD. We love our office and hope you will too, but we won't require you to work from there. We made the decision to be a "virtual first" organization in early 2021. Even after COVID is a thing of the past, we will remain virtual first. If you live in the area and would like to come in, great! If you are in town to meet with your team, even better! We welcome you (and dogs) anytime. We operate with "big person rules" and let you make the decision about what works best for you, your life and your family. Results > Location
