Ethical Hacker / Penetration tester


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

We are looking for Ethical Hackers 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 like malware analysis or source code analysis. It all depends on your passion and ambition!

As Ethical Hacker at Secura every day is different. For the various projects and different customers your "hacker" mindset and creativity are important.  Due to our special projects you will work at unique places and situations. Because of our four-eyes principle you always work with a colleague and your learning curve is very steep.

On average 50% of your time is spent onsite with clients.

As Ethical Hacker you take care of:

  • Assessing IT security (systems, networks and applications) in a broad range of project types.
  • Active participation in R&D projects.
  • Writing reports based on the evaluations performed.
  • Communicate with customers about the security information.
  • Personal development through training and courses.

You are an Ethical Hacker with:

  • A completed Technical Bachelor/Master degree.
  • 0 to 5 years relevant work experience.
  • Dutch and English speaking and writing skills.

As Ethical Hacker, you have a "hackers mindset" and you think out of the box. You have affinity and preferably experience with IT Security testing. Preferably, you also have experience with programming, social engineering, hardware hacking or forensic engineering. You are a good communicator and you can express your opinion both verbally and in writing. You do not have 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, which allows you to further develop and expand your knowledge and passion. Also, Secura gives you the freedom to spend  time to attend conferences, courses and execute 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.
