Garmin - Olathe, KS (30+ days ago)3.9


As a leading worldwide provider of navigation devices and wearable technology, our focus is on developing, designing and supporting superior products. Our advanced technology promotes performance, safety and ease of use in every market we serve. That makes us an engineering and technology company with a keen focus on recruiting talent in those fields. But the same vertical integration business model that keeps all design and manufacturing processes in-house also gives us the incentive to hire top performers from different backgrounds, including operations, finance and accounting, information technology, sales, marketing and communications.

Can you hack it? We’re looking for an information security expert to break into our computer systems, products and software to find possible exploits. Must be able to complete penetration testing assessment reports and work with subject matter experts to minimize our risks, as well as comfortably execute pre-determined tests or design your own. If you think you can break in, we’d love to bring you in.
