Penetration Tester

SecurityMetrics - Orem, UT3.6

Full-timeEstimated: $50,000 - $68,000 a year
Summary of Position

Our team is seeking a Penetration Tester who wants to spend more time hacking, and less time writing reports, managing customers, and traveling.

What Sets Us Apart

We strive to develop a Work-to-Live rather than a Live-to-Work culture. Don't get us wrong, we *love* what we do, but we enjoy having personal lives too. Although, it is not unusual to find members of our team burning the midnight oil competing in Capture-the-Flag competitions, or working on personal projects.

Security is a constantly evolving and fascinating field. Because our team wants to keep up with, and pioneer, our industry, SecurityMetrics provides us with training resources, practice environments, and one-on-one coaching. Our team uses these resources to improve our methodologies, and brush up on our skills.

Our entire team works out of our headquarters in Orem, Utah.(With a stunning view of the Wasatch Mountains.) Remember how we like having personal lives? We try our best to minimize unnecessary travel. From 2014 – 2019, no Penetration Testers were asked to travel. Not only does this provide us with more time for our private lives, but it also allows us to learn, collaborate, and work together as a team.

Speaking of our team, we have been performing penetration tests for over a decade, we have also been attending Def Con as a team for just as long. Additionally, members of our team have worked previously as Developers, System Administrators, Network Administrators, Security Auditors, and more. We have a wealth of information in our group that we are looking to share, and we hope that you will add to.
