NetSec jobs at Reddit and work for SI

If you looking for a new job or contract work, checkout this theead at Reddit's /r/netsec community: Q4 2012 Information Security Hiring Thread

There are some great opportunities in there including one from SI who I would  recommend you take a look at.

Here is how Joe (who leads the Services team) describes SI's work environment (which I have to say it is not an exaggeration) and the current openings.

(pasted from this reddit comment)

Security Innovation (SI) is hiring Security Engineers and Security Trainers for our Seattle and Boston offices.

SI is an awesome place where you get to work with like-minded, passionate, dedicated friends daily. We encourage our engineers to build their skills through research time and being part of a tightly knit team.

We are the kind of team that gets really, really excited about finding vulnerabilities and helping our customers understand their risk. Yesterday one of the guys on my team came in my office grinning from ear to ear giggling and saying "I figured out their auth system... Or Lack Thereof!!"

We work with a huge number of varying customers, from large tech companies to small startups. We find vulns in everything from embedded, mobile, web, native, and more. We expect you to have the skills for all of these and a specialty in one or two areas.

If you've found yourself giggling after finding a vulnerability, if you enjoy participating in CTFs and solving problems, if you like the idea of focusing on honing your skills in security with an awesome team please apply.
  • We pay well and have tons of awesome perks like:
  • 10% of your time can be dedicated to personal research (with a generous research and education budget), present at conferences, get published, etc.
  • We will buy you a kickass machine when you come aboard of your choosing
  • Unlimited (yes, really) vacation and awesome bonuses
  • Work with an awesome team (for the last three years straight we've brewed beer together for our holiday party)
  • Actually Fun Morale events (yes, beyond the beer brewing :) )
Check out our blog and some of our posts (especially the engineering ones like these): Check out some of our tools, github, blog, whitepapers and other contributions to the security world on our website.

Thanks for reading down to the end of this post, if you'd like to apply we'd love to have you. For more information see theofficial job postings.

When you're ready we've set up a challenge for you to test your skills! Get as far as you can and email your resume along with your progress to jobs -at- securityinnovation -.- com. If you get stuck don't hesitate to e-mail for a hint. Note: this challenge is supposed to be fun, so don't beat yourself up over it.
