Do you know the OWASP top 10, and get excited about  raspberry PI’s, red teaming with binary exploitation and CTF’s? Do you see hacking as complex puzzles to solve? Do you want to develop your hacker skills through doing a variety of  projects with different colleagues?


We are looking for Ethical Hackers for our Eindhoven and Amsterdam offices who are interested in web application security, network security and / or social engineering. You will be deployed many different projects from internal pentests to phishing attacks and from mobile research into crystal box applications, as we develop our juniors broadly. In addition, we offer you the opportunity to specialize in your chosen specialty like malware analysis or source code analysis. It depends what your passion and ambition is!


As Ethical Hacker at Secura, no day is the same. For the various projects and different customers, your "hacker" mindset and creativity are important.  Due to our  special projects, you will work at unique places and situations. Because of our four-eyes principle you always work with a colleague and your learning curve is very steep. On average 50% of your time is spent onsite with  clients.



We are Secura. It is our mission to help our clients take control of their digital security by providing world-class, independent advice, test and assessment services. We bundle our services into a complete portfolio that enable our customers to be proactive and in control of their digital security, with respect to people, processes and technology. Our services are divided into four main service lines: ‘Advisory & Audit’, ‘Security Testing’ ‘Training & Awareness’ and Certification Services.


Secura, formerly known as Madison Gurkha, was founded in 2000 and employs a motivated and dedicated team from offices in the two main technological centers of the Netherlands: Eindhoven and Amsterdam.


As Ethical Hacker, you take care of:

• Assessing IT security (systems, networks and applications) in a broad range of project types.

• Active participation in R&D projects.

• Writing reports on the evaluations performed.

• Communicate with customers about the security information.

• Personal development through training and courses.

You are a Ethical Hacker with:

• A completed Technical Bachelor/Master degree.

• 0 to 5 years relevant work experience.

• Dutch and English speaking and writing skills.


As Ethical Hacker, you have a "hacker mindset" and you think out of the box. You have affinity and preferably experience with IT Security testing. Preferably, you also have experience with programming, social engineering, hardware hacking or forensic engineering. You are a good communicator and you can transfer your opinion both verbally and in writing. You do not have 9 to 5 mentality and traveling to customers, including overnight stays, is no problem.


What can we offer you?

We understand your passion is security and you are driven by research into new tools and techniques. First of all, we offer a great team, sharing the same passion, which allows you to further develop and expand your knowledge and passion. Also, Secura gives you the freedom to spend time to attend conferences, courses and execute R&D projects.

A good salary is included in our employment terms package. As we are a growing organisation, you have the opportunity to grow with us and shape not only your career but the company too. You will work a team of experts with great passion for their profession. The informal working atmosphere and open spaces in Amsterdam and Eindhoven are illustrative of our open and driven character.
