Job Description

We are looking to expand our team of highly skilled hackers! Are you a Guru on Hack the box, top earner on your bounty hunting platform of choice, greatest hardware hacker and #BadgeLife collector ever made, the next best social engineer or none of the above but just highly motivated to break stuff? Sounds like you will fit just right in!

We're looking for a new Security Specialist to join our brilliant Offensive Security team!

As our new Security Specialist, you will become part of Outpost24’s Ghost Labs team: Outpost24’s ethical hacking team, technically rooted and the core of Outpost24’s hacking activities. We perform all penetration tests, conduct security research, and contribute to the security community through responsible disclosure and proof-of-concepts. Do you think that you’ve got what it takes, and would you like to join the Ghosts? Read on!

As Security Specialist in the Ghost Labs OffSec team, you are key in delivering our Offensive security and Red teaming services. Your daily activities involve:

  • Performing traditional web, network, mobile and API penetration tests and writing a technical report that links your findings to the relevant (business) impact for the customer.
  • Executing and managing smaller and larger Adversarial attack simulation assessments, from remote digital footprint assessment to full on-site Red team engagements that can run from weeks to months. Including, but not limited to phishing, physical pentests and network exploitation.
  • Working on scoping requests from customers, planning larger assessments and assisting with quality assurance of team deliverables.
  • Perform research projects on subjects that match your personal interests.
  • Continuous knowledge sharing to the team and mentoring/coaching your peers to allow them to learn and grow individually and as a team.
  • Work on the strategic growth of the team in close collaboration with the Head of OffSec and continuously improving internal processes where you see opportunities for improvement.

What would make you stand out as our ideal candidate?

Ideally, we would like to see someone who:

  • Is passionate about technology and security, with a proven track-record and a focus on certain areas (e.g. Adversarial emulation, endpoint protection, malware development, web application exploitation) and knowledge of industry standards and methodologies such as CREST/CBEST, TIBER, Mitre (pre-)ATT&CK and OSSTMM.
  • Has at least five years of relevant professional IT Security experience, for example in the function of Security researcher, principal security consultant, Jr. Manager Security).
  • Has completed a relevant university (of applied sciences) degree, or experience that exceeds that. Honestly, we care equally for the CVEs you discovered than a paper degree, either will do.
  • Has at least two applicable professional certifications (e.g. OSEE, CCSAM, eCXD, eCRE, eMAPT, eCPTX)
  • Is a true team player and self-claimed computer nerd.
  • Has programming/scripting and network engineering skills.
  • Has professional English communications skills, where ‘detail’ and ‘quality’ come naturally, and you don’t mind writing a report and presenting the results to either technical staff or C-level executives.
  • Is willing to travel.
  • Is a native German speaker. You can be located in any of these countries: Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, UK, Spain, France, Sweden - but being a native German speaker is vital. Depending on the location, the position is either fully remote or hybrid remote.

As a Security Specialist, we expect you to be a self-propelled rocket with deep technical knowledge on offensive security topics and a drive to share your knowledge and help others. Overall, you are a passionate omnipotent hacker that knows how to translate technical issues into business language. You can apply your technical skills independently, but you are also a true team player. We expect a strong drive to excel in what you like best, whether it is bypassing anti-virus, picking locks, phishing people, or breaking web applications. By having a team of people that do what they are passionate about, we believe to add the most value to our customers and find the coolest things while doing so.

Above all, we want to see someone who is an awesome team player – for us, attitude is everything!
