Your role

You love coding and are passionate about learning new things. You will be on a team where your ideas and contributions are welcomed and open, direct communication is a two-way street. You’ll have the freedom to code without constant interruptions or endless meetings. You’ve got experience in web development on both the front and back end.

You understand the information security concerns that face companies and you’re excited to help others learn how to fight against the hackers and protect their information. You’ll be working with a small, but mighty team that focuses on our student portal, Skillset or SecurityIQ projects.

Our student portal was launched in 2017 and gives students the “keys to the kingdom”. They are able to review previous classes taken, register for new classes, and gather information about attending the courses like booking a hotel room. Students can print their certificates of completion and access financing options. There’s more that can be done and the right developer will help build out those new features and options.

Experience writing modern, object-oriented PHP and JavaScript (ES6).

About InfoSec Institute

InfoSec Institute was founded in 1998 by an expert team of information security instructors. Their goal was to build a business by offering the best possible training experience for students. We felt that by providing the best possible hands on training, the most practical for today’s demanding workplace requirements, that the business would grow by leaps and bounds. This original assumption proved true. InfoSec Institute has trained over 15,000 individuals. Unlike other training companies that have been founded by non-technical business persons, InfoSec Institute deeply understands the needs of today’s IT professionals and is best positioned to offer world class training.

InfoSec Institute is an equal opportunity employer.
