Ethical hacker Offensive Team - PwC

Location: Amsterdam
Employment: Full-time
You will be part of the Offensive Security team which solves complex IT issues. You will break into systems with the aim of improving our clients’ security. You will be working on web applications, internal networks, IoT, OT and mobile devices.

Job Description & Summary
As an ethical hacker in our Offensive Security team, you will spend your week legally breaking into computer networks, websites, mobile devices, OT and IoT environments. Your aim will be to provide specific recommendations to our leading clients (mostly top 500 organisations in the public and private sectors) to help them keep hackers out.

You can apply MS08-067 with your eyes closed and you also know everything there is to know about EternalBlue. People in your circle of friends call you to check whether they have received a phishing email. You have the mindset of a hacker and you do not give up if antivirus intercepts your payload. We find this drive and mindset more important in our hackers than any specific previous training.

However, we do naturally require you to meet certain minimum requirements:

  • You have around 1-2 years of work experience with carrying out ethical hacking tests and/or red teaming on websites and networks;
  • You enjoy developing yourself further in the field of ethical hacking;
  • You hold certifications such as CISSP, GPEN, or OSCP, or would like to achieve these;
  • You are interested and curious about studying and implementing technically innovative initiatives, ideas and concepts;
  • You are able to communicate your security knowledge and experience in a comprehensible manner to administrators and colleagues in the team;
  • You have graduated from a university or university of applied sciences;
  • You are analytical and pragmatic and have good communication skills;
  • You have an excellent command of both Dutch and English;
  • You want to invest in your own development and that of others;
  • You enjoy working in a team.

You might not have any work experience yet but spend so much free time on hacking that we should definitely meet. Surprise us in your application letter.
