Job Description

A successful offensive security engineer at NaviSec Delta should possess a deep understanding of both information security and computer science. They should understand basic concepts including computer networking, web and native application functionality, operating system functionality, cloud services, corporate network environments and operations.

This role is technical and challenging with opportunities to work in some of the most exciting areas of security consulting on projects that have a meaningful impact across nearly all industries.

An offensive security engineer will be expected to perform penetration tests with little oversight, across a range of disciplines, such as web application security, wide scope internal networks, external networks and running and tracking phishing campaigns.

At NaviSec Delta, you’ll be faced with complex problem-solving opportunities and hands-on technical opportunities on a daily basis. We help our clients protect their most sensitive and valuable data through comprehensive offensive security assessment, providing a tailored approach to each client, knowing that a one-size fits all approach does not often satisfy the client’s needs.

You will be expected to develop and maintain your own offensive automation via scripts, shell aliases or whatever means you see fit!

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 accurately assess them. You will get to work with some of the best offensive engineers and operators in the industry, allowing you to develop new skills as you progress. Are you up to the challenge?
