We’re proud of our team and the important work we do to build confidence for a more connected world.

Who we are looking for:
Optiv is a multi-disciplined consulting team with focus areas on network penetration, malware analysis, vulnerability research, hardware testing, operating system, mobile device, and application testing. The Application Security group focuses on mobile and web application testing, and generally anything in Java, .Net, PHP or Web/Mobile frameworks
We expect a senior-level individual to have at least four years in a directly related role. The majority of work is remote we would like to talk to you regardless of where you call home.

How you will make an impact

    • Penetration testing using both black box testing techniques as well as in-depth reviews of source code.
    • Demonstrate a comprehensive application testing methodology. Identify critical vulnerabilities not detectable by static analysis tools and provided reports, severity classifications, and remediation advice.
    • Gray box application testing. Our normal app assessment approach is a full-knowledge gray box style where we have access to docs, source, a functioning app, and control of the environment. We do also perform straight code reviews or black box testing and all consultants need to be comfortable with both. Basically, you need be able to take advantage of those resources, when present, and not be hamstrung when they are not available.
    • Code review and static analysis. You should know how to approach a large code review and be experienced with current static analysis tools. You should be able to look at a codebase and prioritize code for top-down as well as create signatures for components that aren’t covered with the base toolset. Aid in vulnerability remediation efforts by working alongside developers as well as directly contributing to the code base.
    • Mobile application testing. Should understand the threat classes for mobile apps and preferably have performed assessments of mobile application on the iOS, WinPhone, and Android platforms.
    • Threat Modeling and SDL processes, as per the MS guidelines.
    • Secure SDLC for Agile / DevOps
