    [The company in this thread is currently not looking for any employees.]

    Hello EH-netters,

    As I couldn’t post in the “Looking to Hire” section for unknown reasons, I thought that I would post here instead. Sorry if this is the wrong way to do it Don  ;D

    A company that I know fairly well, is looking to hire both new and experienced penetration testers. Good technical skills is a must, and having a passion for IT and Information Security is a big plus, as they only hire people who knows what they’re talking about.

    You don’t have to be an expert in fall fields, but you should be fairly familiar with Windows, Linux and some Unix as a bare minimum.

    As this is a technical role, knowing how to pentest a web application but also services is essential, even though exploit development skills is not required, except for web applications such as SQL Injection, LFI, RFI, XSS, etc, which is not that advanced compared to finding 0days in binaries.

    English written skills must be very good (required to write the reports), even though it does not have to be your native language. English oral skills should be fairly good, even though the written English must as previously stated be good.

    The role is mostly office based in Sydney, with visits to clients from time to time. (Mostly office based, as in testing from the office. The first couple of weeks / months does not require you to meet up with clients, unless you feel ready for that.)

    There’s extras such as a company laptop (often brand new), cellphone (often brand new or very new too), paid expenses for common things (travel, use of custom tools at a fair rate, etc.), and the salary is not bad either.

    They are looking for both skilled people with and without previous information security experience (in a company).

    Knowing how to write scripts and/or programs is a plus, and having certifications such as OSCE, OSCP, CISSP, GPEN, OSEE, etc., is a plus, but not a requirement.

    NOTE: You must be eligible for a visa if you are not currently in Australia. The company is willing to sponsor future employees after a contract has been signed.

    Expect several interviews and some of them to be very technical at some point. If you make it to the end, you may have to complete a CTF/challenge set at intermediate level.

    No matter where you are from and if you think your English and pentest skills are good, then you may be their new employee. Relocation packages are available (at a fair rate) as well.

    If you’d like to hear more, send me a PM.

    Best regards,
    MaXe

    They are actually constantly looking for people in Australia, even though they are barely advertising it internationally.  🙂

    I got semi excited until I asked the wife if she wanted to move to Australia.  I will take the stare I got as a no.  I tried to bribe with Koalas but that didn’t work.  Oh well, guess I will stay in the States.

    What about kangaroos and fine places to eat?  ;D Anyway 3xban, that’s one of the major problem we have had in acquiring people from overseas, as it is usually a wife or a girlfriend that says no.

    I have been to Australia many times and I love it there. Beautiful country and everyone that I ever talked to was really nice.  I have been to Sidney, Perth (FAVORITE) and a few other smaller cities along the coast. I have always dreamed of a job opportunity like this, too bad my current contract is for another 3 years.

    Hey now, learning through failure is very effective. I’d say go for it regardless 8)

    I am not in charge of the difficulty of the interviews, I am only doing the preliminary screening to see what kind of skill people have (i.e. if there is a basic foundation, it’s good enough for for an interview.)  🙂 Currently I’d say it isn’t too hard (but not too easy either), even though it does involve theoretical and practical tests.

    The practical tests (where I have created or planned most of them currently) are considered OSCP difficulty, even though some bonus challenges will be added soon, to see if anyone got OSCE (or similar) skills as well. (Those are however, bonus challenges.)

    As we are looking for both new and experienced consultants, the difficulty will differ between these, but they are far from impossible to pass.

    Even if you shouldn’t be able to pass the interviews, this doesn’t mean you’re not good enough as a hacker, it only means you may need to improve some of your skills or that your skill set may not fit into the company at the moment. (You could be expert at a topic we don’t deliver services for.)

    So if you don’t have anything holding you back, wherever you are in the world and you think you have what it takes, then send me a PM with your certifications, skills and if you have any, previous experience, as your English skills are probably better than mine. (The job contains a lot of report writing, just like any other pentesting job, so good English skills is of course required.)

    Well I’m out 😀  But if I am ever on that end of the world I’ll look you up.  I figure if I can get the wife to Hawaii, then Australia would be next!  Told her to just get liquored up or pop a sleeping pill 😀
