Do you like analyzing complex security issues?

Riscure is a young, ambitious organization specializing in embedded security testing for leading international clients from the semiconductor, payment, Pay TV, mobile, and smart metering industry. In addition, Riscure is the leading vendor of specialist security testing products. We have 60 employees with mixed technical and academic backgrounds working from offices in
Delft, The Netherlands and San Francisco, USA. Riscure is organized in three units: Security Lab, Inspector, and Riscure North America.

 

We are looking for Experienced Security Analysts who like to use a variety of techniques (for instance source code review, software reverse engineering and exploitation) to discover a product’s fraud risk profile in order to improve its security. The position is mainly for Mobile security assessments in the payment market, but hardware projects, or any other type of project may come your way if you are up for it. Do you get excited over software reversing? Or how about analyzing a Trusted Applications? Does the prospect of using libFuzzer or AFL on a Trusted Application give you goosebumps? Do you call IDA Pro or radare2 your friends? Do you dream in hex? Even more reasons to come aboard!

 

 

What does a day at Riscure look like?

We evaluate the security of products that use embedded, smart card, and mobile technologies usually in teams of 2-4 security analysts. The main activities of the evaluation process include analysing threats and weaknesses by taking apart a device’s specifications, code or hardware, and then developing the necessary tools to attack the security. Results of this go into a report, and we give recommendations for solving these problems.

 

In addition to evaluation work we carry out other projects, including consultancy work, research, tool development, and training. As a state-of-the-art lab, our internal research and development process is a necessity to remain competitive. We record the knowledge we gain during our projects to ensure it is preserved and shared within Riscure.

 

We mainly work at our office in Delft. Parts of a project may require working at the customer’s premises. Depending on the type of assignment and your level of experience you are in regular contact with a customer’s technical liaison during a project. All communications with our customers are in English.
