Security Consultant (#986,229,876) 

Job offer #986,229,876 in Johannesburg (Gauteng), South Africa

Looking For
The client is developing the next generation of solutions to help protect against all kinds of threats to computer security within organizations and a number of proof of concepts have been written and deployed to their customers in this space.
They solve complex cyber-security problems on a daily basis and to do that requires an interesting mix of skills. To be successful and help their clients with their challenges they know youll need the following:
A passion for security!
You love computers, you love security and you love hacking things and solving problems. If this wasnt your job it would be your hobby. Technical excellence. You know your subject area, but youll also know what that subject area is without us needing to say. You dont just know how to run a port scan using Nmap, you could code up your own tool to perform the port scan if you really needed to.
Youre not going to be told what to do all the time. You are capable of figuring out what spending time working is of benefit to the organization and their clients and then run with it. With great freedom comes great responsibility and you also seek out guidance from those around you when you need it.
Communication skills
How can we add value to our client's organizations unless we can tell them what we did, how we did it, and how they can fix it? But communication also extends to sharing your knowledge with your colleagues and the wider industry.
Work Culture
Theyd also love you to do some research to ensure your skills remain relevant in a fast-paced world of security.
How you spend the rest of the time thats not working with clients is your call. The client has a commitment to research. Based on their skillset and inclination, their consultants get a percentage of their time dedicated to security research. Whether it is used to investigate new software, hardware or protocols, they encourage their team to push the boundaries of what is possible!


Your role will involve carrying out penetration testing and security assessments right up to targeted attack simulations which may span several months.
We want people with at least one, preferably two, of the following:

WebApp Testing. You know your way around burp and can do SQL without using SQLmap.
Infrastructure Testing. You understand that this doesnt just mean running Nessus.
Mobile App Testing. You know that Drozer is the best tool ever for Android testing and youll also know what youd use for testing on the other major platforms.
OSCP & OSCE wont hurt your chances, CEH might.

Please send your CV to or you can contact Xolani on 021 914 2928.

If you do not receive any feedback within 2 weeks of submitting your CV, please accept your application as unsuccessful.
