Junior Penetration Tester


Are you a Kali wizard, a CTF master, or do you get excited about red teaming and building things around Raspberry Pi’s? Do you see a hacking project as a complex puzzle to solve? Do you want to develop your hacker skills by doing a wide variety of projects with different colleagues?

We are looking for Junior Penetration Testers for our Eindhoven and Amsterdam offices who are interested in web and mobile application security, network security, and/or social engineering. Depending on your skill set and personal interests, you will participate in many different projects. The types of projects range from exploiting an enterprise network to phishing attacks and testing a mobile application to reverse engineering obfuscated binaries. This way, you will discover the field you enjoy working in most and develop yourself further. Your path within Secura depends on your passion and ambition!

Working as a Penetration Tester at Secura, every day is different. For the various projects and different customers, your ‘hacker mindset’ and creativity are key. You will work at unique places and situations. Thanks to our four-eyes principle, you always work together with a colleague. As a result, your learning curve will be very steep, meaning you will quickly develop skills and knowledge!

As a Junior Penetration Tester you:

  • Assess IT security (systems, networks, and applications) at a basic level.
  • Write clear technical reports about the conducted IT- security assessments.
  • Are able to translate your technical findings into recommendations on both the technical and business level.
  • Perform tool and method validation projects and state results and interpretation in a report.
  • Contact clients professionally, e.g., requesting additional technical information in preparation for or during an assessment.
  • Are able to timely flag potential issues and take correct action proactively in case of project complications.
  • Work within the pre-determined time box and scope.
  • Participate actively in R&D projects.


You are a Junior Penetration Tester with:

  • A BSc degree (minimum) with proven knowledge and experience in IT.
  • Good communication (in English, both written and oral), Dutch is a pre.
  • A ‘hacker mindset,’ and you are able to think out of the box.
  • Proven affinity with technical IT security assessments. Experience with programming, social engineering, hardware hacking, or forensics is a pre.
  • No 9 to 5 mentality.
  • Occasional traveling to customers, including overnight stays, is no problem.


What can we offer you?

We understand your passion is security, and you are driven by research into new tools and techniques. First of all, we offer a great team sharing the same passion, which allows you to develop further and expand your knowledge and passion. Also, Secura gives you the freedom to spend time attending conferences, follow courses that fit your interests and ambitions and work on R&D projects.

A good salary is included in our employment terms package. As we are a growing organization, you have the opportunity to grow with us and shape not only your career but the company too! The informal working atmosphere and open spaces in Amsterdam and Eindhoven are illustrative of our open character.
