Some days, you’ll be red teaming wireless networks and participating on social engineering engagements. Other days, you’ll be analyzing source code and building threat models. Every day at Bishop Fox, you’ll be learning.

    As a consultant, you’ll solve challenging technical problems and build creative solutions. As a trusted advisor, you’ll provide your expert opinion to help our clients navigate difficult business decisions.

    • Vulnerability assessment
    • Penetration testing and code review
    • Understanding security fundamentals and common vulnerabilities (e.g., OWASP Top Ten)
    • 2 - 5 years of application security experience
    • More than 3 years of security consulting experience

    • Strong communication skills (i.e., written and verbal)
    • CISSP, OSCP/E, GWAPT, GPEN, or GXPN certifications are helpful, but not a necessity
