Penetration Tester

Do you know the OWASP top 10 and get excited about red teaming with binary exploitation and CTF’s? Do you see hacking as a complex puzzle to solve? Do you want to develop your hacker skills by doing a variety of projects with different colleagues?

We are looking for Penetration Testers for our Eindhoven and Amsterdam offices who are interested in web application security, network security, and/or social engineering. You will be deployed for many different projects, from internal pen tests to phishing attacks but also mobile research into crystal box applications, as we believe in developing our people. In addition, we offer you the opportunity to specialize in your chosen field. It all 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 essential. Due to our special projects, you will work at unique places and situations. Because of our four-eye principle, you always work with a colleague, and your learning curve is very steep.

As a Penetration Tester you:

  • Assess IT security (systems, networks, and application) on an intermediate level
  • Can support/provide consultancy to clients independently
  • Align on the scope with the client for certain projects
  • Communicate with the client regarding progress and reporting of later projects
  • Contact clients for security information and the organization of the assessment
  • Provide support to others on projects next to your own
  • Deliver clear parts in R&D projects
  • Are able to give an internal/external presentation/training
  • Write blogs/posts/brochures/new items
  • Guide internships and students
  • Write reports about the conducted IT- security assessments (being a lead on a project)

You are a Penetration Tester with:

  • A BSc degree (minimum) with proven knowledge and experience in IT
  • 2+ years of relevant working experience
  • Good communication skills (English both written and oral)
  • A “Hacker mindset”, and able to think out of the box
  • Proven affinity with technical IT security assessments. Experience with programming, social engineering, hardware hacking, or forensics is preferable
  • No 9 to 5 mentality and 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, allowing you to develop further and expand your knowledge and passion. Also, Secura gives you the freedom to spend time attending conferences, courses and executing 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.
