A well-known, global technology company, is looking for two talented Senior Security Analysts, with a genuine passion for Cyber Security, to join its state of the art Cyber Evaluation Practice. This area of the business seeks to improve the overall security of the company’s products, which includes everything from Android smart phones to large scale network solutions, so the range of work and technologies you will be exposed to is massive and incredibly varied. This position isn’t a regular penetration testing job – it will push your skills to the limit!

The role
Working in, or leading small multi-discipline teams you will set about the evaluation of the company’s core products and be expected to demonstrate your ability to exploit them. There probably isn’t a tool for what you want to do, so you will be capable of creating one.

This opportunity will allow you to work on a wide-range of technologies, from Windows to VxWorks with development languages including C, C++, Java and Python, differing processor architectures and bespoke real-time systems.
We expect you to be able to take on line management responsibility for a small team (2-4 skilled security analysts).

Essential skills
  • Applicants must have strong, demonstrable knowledge of cyber security – through vulnerability research or penetration testing.
  • Ideally be university educated in Computer Science or a similar Engineering subject
  • Have a good understanding of low-level programming and the C language
  • Be able to demonstrate aptitude for line management
In return, you will receive extensive support and training and the opportunity to progress your career within a unique Cyber Security environment.
