Intruder is a multi-award-winning cyber security startup helping IT Managers and DevOps engineers protect their organisations from the cyber attacks of tomorrow.
All companies run on software in which new vulnerabilities are constantly being identified – over 8,000 a year. Some of the biggest hacks of the last few years have been caused by companies not fixing these weaknesses in their systems, because the tools available to find them are too complicated for non-experts.
Intruder is an online platform that helps companies easily identify these weaknesses, and fix them, before they get hacked. We’ve been through some prestigious accelerators including CyLon and the GCHQ Cyber Accelerator, and now have 80+ customers on our SaaS platform, from Australia to Singapore and New York.
Who we’re looking for
We need the best security minds to help make sure our platform is always at the cutting edge of the industry, while simultaneously delivering the bespoke security consultancy or penetration testing that many of our customers need.
You'll need to be a consultant first and foremost, with the ability to speak to customers and managing your own schedule and workload as important as your technical ability as a hacker. You'll also need to understand the important difference between a technical vulnerability and a business risk, as our clients need us to speak their language as well as ours.
In addition to consultancy work, a core part of your role will be to help us maintain and improve the Intruder platform itself - writing new issue descriptions and recommendations, suggesting improvements, or researching options for new features or optimisations.
We're still a small team, so you'll also occasionally need to weigh in on a request from a customer, or help out at an event. So this role would suit someone looking for some variety to their role.
Ideally you’ll have some experience as a penetration tester, and bring a variety of skills, but energy, enthusiasm and the ability to learn are as important as experience, and a little entrepreneurial spirit wouldn’t go amiss. As much as we want someone to deliver, we want them to come with their own ideas and ways for us to improve as a product and a business.
What’s in it for you
We're a friendly team and we work in an enjoyable but professional working environment. We're not a traditional consultancy in that our focus is primarily on the product, so we don't run our testing team at 100% utilisation, there's plenty of time for doing research and writing blogs, where this aligns with company objectives.
We also want you to benefit from the success you create, great companies are built by great people, so we offer share options to all employees, depending on experience and salary.
