What we expect:
We are seeking security analysts with a genuine passion for cyber security. This position isn’t a regular penetration testing job – this will push your skills to the limits. You’ll need to be able to demonstrate your ability to exploit vulnerable systems – but these aren’t the standard Windows target – we have different architectures – SPARC, MIPS, ARM and a range of custom ASICs. There probably isn’t a tool for what you want to do – we expect you to create one. We’re going after the LTE network, the mobile core, the super-fast broadband network, the backhaul, the optical transmission – the full works.
Given the unique nature of the cyber security challenge all applicants must be able to obtain UK security clearance (DV standard).
