Vacancy Technical Security Specialist

Is hacking your way of life? Do you get energized from setting up a good red teaming attack?

We are looking for Technical Security Specialists in the area of infrastructure, web application and red teaming. We provide a wide range of security services from black box application research to crystal box infrastructure research and from threat modeling sessions to hack-on-hacking workshops. We also use our expertise on special projects, where you will work at unique locations and situations.

Because of our four-eye principle you will spend most of your time working on a project with colleagues. Our learning curve is very steep. You are an autodidact and have a drive to continuously improve yourself within your area of interest. Approximately 50% of your time will be working on-site at one of our customers, the other 50% will be from our office. Your home office is either in Amsterdam or Eindhoven.

As a Technical Security Specialist, you take care of:

  • Assessing IT security (systems, networks and application) at an expert level.
  • Leading and managing R&D projects.

Preferably, you also have experience with programming, social engineering, hardware hacking or forensic engineering. You are able to translate your technical assessments into reports and presentations for your customers. 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.
