Job Description

Penetration Tester

A global Information Security Consultancy is currently looking for Penetration Testers, security-focused engineers and researchers to join their security consulting and research practice.

Job duties will include penetration testing, security analysis, and cutting-edge research into current technologies and attacks

Responsibilities of the role

You will spend most of your day thinking about security systems and how you can break them. This is a very creative job that gives individuals a lot of freedom to be clever while learning new technologies at a very fast pace. Typical engagements will pair you with another experienced security consultant, and you will learn from each other along the way. Engagements are usually 2-4 weeks long.

During your normal customer work, you will be exposed to a wide variety of products and technology stacks. You will have enormous impact in making the software people use safer. You will also be a security researcher, with dedicated research time.

The Work

You will test web applications and mobile apps, networks, sandboxes, kernel components, custom client-server applications, hardware and firmware, stand-alone applications and more, and also do some social engineering and physical penetration testing.

Customer engagements are a mix of large software, hardware, and hosted application providers, start-ups, financial services companies, and more.

As a consultant, you will go to clients sites when necessary. Although travel is limited and local. That being said, the business is always working with clients to deliver remote work whenever possible. Travel is proactively monitored so that no one is constantly being sent around the country (unless they volunteer). By and large, this is a company run by security consultants, and have no interest in burning themselves out.

Location: Houston, Texas

Salary: Dependent on experience. $95k - $160k + bonuses and benefits
