JOB DESCRIPTION

You want to join Excellium because…

You are curious, motivated, and passionate!

Integrated within dynamic and passionate teams, as our new Confirmed Application Security consultant, you will have the opportunity to fully invest yourself, innovate and create from the latest technologies. You will quickly find your place at Excellium. In order to understand our business, the challenges of our customers and to support them we regularly organize meetings, workshops and training. We will thus help you level up your skills and position you on stimulating projects adapted to your profile and enabling you to surpass yourself.

Your team as Confirmed Application Security Consultant:

Excellium is looking for a senior penetration tester to join the Intrusion and Application Security (IAS) Department based in Luxembourg. With more than 160 engagements performed in 2020 despite the pandemic, the IAS department is one of the largest offensive team in Luxembourg. The department has two practices where consultants specialize in either Application Security or Intrusion activities.

Your mission as Confirmed Application Security Consultant:

As Application Security (AppSec) consultant, you help clients to identify vulnerabilities in different kinds of applications (web, API, mobile, desktop) as well helping them in the following activities:

  • Integration of the security in the software development life cycle
  • Identification of tailored remediations for specific technology contexts
  • Implementation of security tasks in CI/CD pipeline
  • Training of developers to secure coding
  • Study and presentation of new vulnerabilities to developers, etc.

At Excellium, we see the AppSec as a combination of offensive and defensive approaches and mindsets. Indeed, our AppSec consultants are able to break into applications as well as add defensive measures into them. A strong personal investment is required to tackle both sides but it is both fascinating and rewarding.

The “confirmed” seniority level means that you have a proven consultancy experience, with the capacity to both in team or in autonomy. You are already able to identify vulnerabilities in an application, provide suitable countermeasure as well as providing effective code samples representing your remediation proposal.
