Application security and penetration testing
REMOTE POSITIONS ARE AVAILABLE
This job requires strong application development skills, and/or experience in application penetration testing. We are not seeking business-level consultants, architects, or project managers. If you know how to write code and have an interest or skill in finding and exploiting vulnerabilities then we want to talk.
Who is Casaba?
Casaba Security is a cybersecurity consulting firm based in Seattle and in business for over a decade. The term cybersecurity encompasses the entire technology stack we all use on a daily basis, from the services and components to the raw data. From the mobile device in your pocket, to the desktop software and cloud services you use every day, to the mission-critical systems that power our lives, Casaba has been there to design and test security.
What kind of work does Casaba do?
We are security advisors, engineers, and testers. From threat modeling to penetration testing to writing secure code, there are many aspects of the niche focus we call security that take place on a daily basis. We at Casaba work on long-term engagements building and executing security programs for our clients, and we work on short-term jobs that may span a few days or a few weeks of investigating a new cloud service, video game, mobile platform, or retail outlet. There is plenty of variety to this work, and while the field of cybersecurity itself has many niches, there is a certain amount of generalized technology knowledge that is required.
Positions and Job Description
We have immediate openings for junior, senior, and principal security consultants. This is your opportunity to be as resourceful as you want, develop your skills, and learn from and contribute to leading software development and security testing efforts. Casaba offers competitive salaries, profit sharing, medical benefits, and a terrific work/life balance. Casaba Security is an equal opportunity employer.
All positions are located in the Seattle metro area. Remote positions are not available, although we will provide relocation assistance for the right candidates.
Do you like finding bugs in code? Have you built fuzzers, searched source code for vulnerabilities, or spotted defects in software designs? Do the terms threat modeling, buffer overflow, race condition, cross-site scripting, or SQL injection mean anything to you? Do you enjoy reverse engineering malware or attacking protocols? Can you discuss the security implications of router misconfigurations? Do you enjoy scanning and mapping networks, building tools to automate penetration testing or other tasks? If so, then we have a job for you.
Do not worry if your security skills are not as sharp as you would like. If you have a strong background in software development then we would like to talk to you. If you have aptitude in the aforementioned areas, we can teach you the skills necessary to execute the types of security testing we perform for clients. This is a great opportunity if you have been wanting to break into the security industry.
