Schellman created our Penetration Tester roles with the goal of giving talented technical professionals, who have at least 2 years of security experience and their OSCP, a structured plan to elevate their expertise. While this is not an entry or Associate level, it is a rare opportunity to transition to a focused Pen Tester position to build on your offensive skillset while working on engagements with our team, whose unrivaled knowledge and experience will provide guidance and mentorship throughout. What do we ask from you? Unwavering commitment to learn as much as possible during the program and beyond, to be a contributing member of the team, and to always be up for a new challenge.
There is no typical day for our Pen Test team. Our clients rely on us to find a myriad of vulnerabilities across network, application, mobile, cloud, wireless and other assessments. The benefit of being exposed to so many different situations is that you are constantly building your knowledge base and skillset while keeping up with the latest cloud technologies and endpoint protection. Our team is remote yet extremely collaborative and works together to utilize their different backgrounds and experience to solve these problems.
In addition to the hands-on training, Schellman also promotes a continuous learning environment. Team members are encouraged to attend at least one security conference and training event every year to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.
Our required background includes:
-At least two years of Pen Testing, Software Development, Systems Administration, or similar background with hands-on technical Security experience
-Completion of the OSCP Certification
-Demonstrated enthusiasm for Information Security (e.g. GitHub repo, blogs, presentations, conference talks, local security association member, participated in free skill-building / hacking challenges – SANS Holiday Hack, HackerOne CTF, HackTheBox.eu, etc.)
-Competency in common operating systems (e.g. Windows, macOS, Linux)
-An understanding of cloud computing models, technologies, and concepts
-Degree in computer science or information technology
Our ideal candidate has:
-The single-minded focus of furthering a career in Penetration Testing
-Demonstrated entrepreneurial abilities, client focus, industry savvy, and the ability to work independently or as part of a collaborative team
-Advanced written and verbal communication skills
-Strong analytical and interpersonal characteristics
-Demonstrated consistency in values, principles, and work ethic
-Self-driven in a remote working environment
If Pen Testing is your passion, if you love to do CTFs in your spare time (the 2nd step of our interview process!), if you dream about attending security conferences (e.g. BlackHat, ShmooCon, DefCon, etc.) or eagerly git clone the latest tools / frameworks to play with in your home lab, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for to join our team.
