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.
