Senior Penetration Tester (Application Security)

    • Flexible / Remote

Bishop Fox is the largest private professional services firm focused on offensive security. We protect our clients by finding vulnerabilities and building defenses before the attackers can break bad. From critical infrastructure to credit cards; social media to mobile games; flight navigation systems to manufacturing factories — we’re right there hacking away.

We’re seeking remote, US-based senior application security penetration testers to join our team – and help us build a more secure world.

Who You Are and What You’ll Do

You are a born penetration tester; you see problems -and solutions- in everything. You instinctively know your way around source code. You’ve plundered apps and pillaged networks (legally, of course). You have a passion for hacking that goes beyond a career – it’s a way of life for you. At this point, you may have accumulated a few disclosures, written blog posts, and given some industry talks. If given the chance, you could probably Hack the Gibson. 

With Bishop Fox, your responsibilities would include testing various application attack surfaces, hacking networks, and reversing software. Some days, you’ll be testing a client’s UI or enterprise software environment; other days, you’ll be analyzing source code and building threat models. Every day at Bishop Fox, you’ll be learning.

As a senior-level consultant, you’ll solve challenging technical problems and build creative solutions in a client-facing role. As a trusted advisor, you’ll provide your expert opinion to help our clients navigate difficult business decisions – including how to prioritize on critical findings. And as a senior penetration tester, you’ll lead small teams on one-of-a-kind engagements, mentor co-workers, and contribute significantly to the advancement of our consulting practice.

Why Bishop Fox

Bishop Fox offers competitive salary, bonus potential, stock options, generous benefits (health/dental/401k with match, PTO/paid holidays, DFSA-HSA-FSA, etc.), flexible schedules, and negotiable travel – as well as a career path that isn’t “one-size-fits-all.” If you’re looking for opportunities to grow professionally, this is the place. You’ll work alongside some of the most talented and experienced security consultants in the industry.

We have a casual workplace, but we’re consummate professionals.
