About Our Client

Our client is one of the fastest-growing company in hi-tech.  Our client is a global leading security company. They help organisations to eliminate the complexity and burden of maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture.  They help the customers to prepare, prevent and respond to potential attacks. Our client is serving thousands of customers across a hundred countries, with over half of it listed in Forbes Global companies.

About the Role

  • A successful Red Team consultant should possess a deep understanding of both information security and computer science. They should understand basic concepts such as networking, applications, and operating system functionality and be able to learn advanced concepts such as application manipulation, exploit development, and stealthy operations.
  • This is not a “press the ‘pwn’ button” type of job; this career is technical and challenging with opportunities to work in some of the most exciting areas of security consulting on extremely technical and challenging work.
  • A typical job could be breaking into a segmented secure zone at a Fortune 500 bank, reverse engineering an application and encryption method in order to gain access to sensitive data, all without being detected.
  • If you can exploit at scale while remaining stealthy, identify and exploit misconfigurations in network infrastructure, parse various types of output data, present relevant data in a digestible manner, think well outside the box, or are astute enough to quickly learn these skills, then you’re the type of consultant we’re looking for.
  • You’ll be faced with complex problem-solving opportunities and hands-on testing opportunities daily. We help our clients protect their most sensitive and valuable data through comprehensive and real-world scenario testing. The objective doesn’t end at gaining “domain admin” or “root”; this is expected and is only a starting point.
  • You are expected to quickly assimilate new information as you will face new client environments on a weekly or monthly basis. You will be expected to understand all the threat vectors to each environment and properly assess them. You will get to work with some of the best red teamers in the industry, causing you to develop new skills as you progress through your career.
