Director, Engineering- Arctic Wolf Networks

Are you intrigued by challenges in cybersecurity? Are you excited about the idea of scaling and mentoring a team? Then you should check out this role.

Artemis Canada has partnered with Arctic Wolf Networks (AWN) to find a new Director of Engineering (R&D).


​Arctic Wolf Networks (AWN) is developing a platform and suite of solutions and services to ensure that mid-sized enterprises can operate with the peace of mind that their data and systems are secure and that they will not suffer from security-related business disruptions.

With the nature of security threats constantly changing, it is the small and midsized organizations that are most vulnerable. Arctic Wolf can augment a generalist IT function, with tools and experts that are tuned for needs of today and tomorrow. Where large enterprises often employ a team of security experts, Arctic Wolf enables all companies to leverage the best security solutions with a service offering that sits on their advanced security platform and solutions.


This is an exciting time for AWN! They’re working on their next generation of products that will automate all roles within a world class security organization, extending a platform-based service offering to clients that will be tailor-made for their unique needs.
