RISE Cybersecurity is among the largest cybersecurity labs/group in Sweden and currently consists of 20+ cybersecurity experts. Our core areas of expertise are: IoT Security, Cloud Security, Communication Security, Access Control, and Secure Virtualization, Trusted Computing, and operational security. RISE Cybersecurity is the European leader in IoT security research, development, and standardization.

RISE Cybersecurity is now looking for 2 security engineers with strong profile in pen testing and ethical hacking.

Placement: Kista Stockholm

In additional to a strong research profile, RISE Cybersecurity is the owner of the RISE Cyber Range test and demo facility, a physical facility in Kista, with a critical infrastructure grade security, that offers a trusted place for Swedish industry to learn and solve their cybersecurity needs. RISE Cyber Range aims at providing practical cybersecurity education, training and exercise; allows creation of sector-specific verticals for incidence/response handling; an environment for state-of-the-art applied cybersecurity research and development; and a forum to participate and organize international ethical hacking and capture-the-flag competitions.

Who are you?
In order for you to succeed and thrive in this position we believe you possess at least 3 years of experience within the field of IT/Cyber security. This includes working with network security, various operational systems, servers, routers and virtualization (1-7 layers in general). We also believe you possess the following:

  • Excellent understanding of penetration tools and techniques
  • Understanding of coding (web, database, scripts, etc.)
  • Excellent knowledge of Linux
  • Preferable personal security clearance
  • Understanding of Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI)

Though your experience and the skills you have obtained in your previous works are the most valuable to us, a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science or cybersecurity will strengthen your profile. This also applies to relevant certifications that show professional technical knowledge, such as OSCP or CSTP.

Ethical hacking without proper reporting and communication of vulnerabilities is not truly applicable, which means that excellent communication skills are a must.
