Penetration Testing

We are always looking for passionate and skilled penetration testers with professional experience.  There are multiple roles available within our penetration testing team, dependant on experience and ability.

In return, you will get to work on exciting and cutting edge engagements across a vast client base.  We are a flexible organisation and, depending on experience, can offer home based positions and a choice of preferred work type.  Here at Nettitude, we pride ourselves on a close knit team and pushing our skills to the max.  Members of our team routinely attend conferences and training, plus there are many other perks available such as day long internal conferences run by us, for us, eight times per year.

We have industry leading levels of employee retention, and for good reason; we’re the kind of place that no one wants to leave!  We push ourselves to the max, so if you’re the kind of person who loves deep technical challenges and a fantastic work environment, we welcome your interest.

Skills

There is no fixed set of skills required to be a successful candidate.  However, the more of the following attributes you can demonstrate to us, the more likely you will be to end up with a job offer.

  • Professional penetration testing experience.  In some cases, we can accept individuals who have worked in related cyber security professions, dependant on aptitude and thirst for knowledge.
    • If you’re fresh out of university or have worked in a wider IT field and are looking for a career change, then you might be interested in our Accelerator scheme: Graduate Scheme.
  • In depth knowledge and understanding of applications and networking.
  • An ability to teach and mentor other members of the team is a distinct advantage; it’s part of what makes us Nettitude!
  • Exploit creation, scripting and reverse engineering are a distinct advantage.
  • A thirst for knowledge and a constant desire to push yourself to the max.
  • Being able to explain technical concepts to a wide array of audiences is extremely useful; we’re looking for well rounded security consultants.

Qualifications and Certifications

There are no formal requirements for any qualifications or certifications.  Indeed, we’re not looking for badge collectors; we look far deeper than that.  However, one or more of the following will serve as a distinct advantage.

  • A BSc degree in a technical discipline.  This could be anything from Mathematics to Computer Science.
  • CREST Registered Tester or CREST Certified Tester.
  • Tiger Scheme and other equivalents equally considered.
  • SC or DV clearance is very much welcomed.
  • Offensive Security, GIAC and other industry recognised certifications will also be well received.

The Process

While we need to be sure that you’re the right person for the job, we don’t elongate the application process any more than is strictly necessary.  The most common selection process looks like this:

  • Provide us with a CV/resume and a covering letter.
  • Success at this stage will lead to a telephone interview.  This will allow us to get to know you a little bit better and gauge if you’d be a suitable candidate to progress to the next stage.
  • A face to face interview.  This is a more formal even that typically lasts between 2-2.5 hours.  The first half is a verbal process, while the second half will see you pitted against some of our internal Capture the Flag levels.

In most cases, that’s it.  We are able to gauge the very vast majority of candidates suitability based on completion of all stages.  If, at any stage, you’re not selected to progress, we will be sure to explain why so that you can improve in those areas.  After a twelve month period, we welcome re-submissions.
