An opportunity to pursue cutting-edge research on web security, and help devise enhancements to Burp Suite.
Do you know web application security inside out? Do you enjoy penetration testing, but prefer pure research? Then this may be the opportunity for you.
We are looking for web security experts with a track record of delivering original research and new ideas within the industry. You will:
- Devise and carry out your own research projects, focusing on new techniques for automating attacks and tests against web applications.
- Present your work at leading industry conferences worldwide, and build your public reputation.
- Help design and advise on enhancements to Burp Suite, often based on the results of your research.
- Spend up to a third of your time* on penetration testing of web applications.
Work directly with Dafydd Stuttard (aka PortSwigger), creator of Burp
Suite, and author of The Web Application Hacker’s Handbook.
*Note: We want you to continue with some testing, to keep your knowledge current and see Burp in action against real-world applications. We do not have utilization targets, and this is an expected upper limit.
|Eligibility:||A minimum of three years' experience working as a web security penetration tester or consultant.|
|Location:||Knutsford, Cheshire, United Kingdom.|
|Remuneration:||Extremely competitive salary and excellent benefits, dependent on skills and experience.|
|Company background:||PortSwigger Web Security is a global leader in the creation of software tools for security testing of web applications.
