At Optiv, we’re on a mission to help our clients make their businesses more secure. We’re one of the fastest-growing companies in a truly essential industry. Join us.
Who we are looking for:
Optiv is a multi-disciplined consulting team with focus areas on network penetration, malware analysis, vulnerability research, hardware testing, operating system, mobile device, and application testing. The Application Security group focuses on mobile and web application testing, and generally anything in Java, .Net, PHP or Web/Mobile frameworks
We expect a senior-level individual to have at least four years in a directly related role. The majority of work is remote we would like to talk to you regardless of where you call home.
How You Will Make an Impact
Advise client development teams on best practices for implementing security controls within the application architecture and CI/CD pipeline
Demonstrate a comprehensive application testing methodology. Identify critical vulnerabilities not detectable by static analysis tools and provided reports, severity classifications, and remediation advice.
Gray box application testing. Our normal app assessment approach is a full-knowledge gray box style where we have access to docs, source, a functioning app, and control of the environment. We do also perform straight code reviews or black box testing and all consultants need to be comfortable with both. Basically, you need be able to take advantage of those resources, when present, and not be hamstrung when they are not available.
Code review and static analysis. You should know how to approach a large code review and be experienced with current static analysis tools. You should be able to look at a codebase and prioritize code for top-down as well as create signatures for components that aren’t covered with the base toolset. Aid in vulnerability remediation efforts by working alongside developers as well as directly contributing to the code base.
Mobile application testing. Should understand the threat classes for mobile apps and preferably have performed assessments of mobile application on the iOS, WinPhone, and Android platforms.
Threat Modeling and SDL processes, as per the MS guidelines.
Secure SDLC for Agile/DevOps
Qualifications For Success
Practical experience in an application security role with manual testing
Excellent SSDLC experience
Previous job experience in an information security consulting services role
Ability to travel up to 30% of the time to client sites
Understanding of software security architecture and design
Ability to work with diverse and dynamic teams
Successful implementation of application testing methodologies for web applications and APIs
Able to assist in setting the strategic direction of the practice based on experience and industry background
College degree or related work experience.
BA/BS degree preferred in computer science, engineering, math, statistics, or information systems
Prefer one or more of the following certifications: CISSP, CEH, OSCP, OSCE, GPEN, CPT
Prior consulting and/or enterprise experience is a plus
Cloud technologies: AWS/Azure/GCP
Container technologies: Docker / Kubernetes
We don't expect people to be experts in every area but you will have to demonstrate expertise in a few so that we can fit you with the appropriate projects.
We don't have an official scripting language, but the team generally tends to work in Ruby or Python for project tools.
