Come Grow with MicroSolved

MSI is currently seeking two full time team members to help grow our information security offerings to our clients.

Our sales process is mature, transparent and client focused and that has helped us become one of the oldest information security firms in the country.

Some security experience is required, along with expected proficiency with operating systems, networking and some basics of coding/scripting. The security team member position should live in Central OH. We need physical presence for much of the work in our lab, so this person has to be close to HQ.
