Ethical Hacker

Ethical Hacker

Autonomy, growth and a team that genuinely supports and challenges each other. If you ask any of our security specialists what it is they value here at the Randstad Group, those are the things you’ll hear. We are now looking for an experienced ethical hacker with the ambition to grow into a whitebox test lead role to join our security testing team.

You will be part of our Randstad Group Netherlands security team, working closely with our Global Offensive security team to support 40+ countries in keeping our systems secure. The team offers various security services to all Randstad countries and their IT landscape. They vary between “standard” black box pentests, white box pentests and Red Team activities. We believe in an approach of working “with” developers and infrastructure teams instead of only supplying them with a report. By working closely with other IT teams we become a true partner in identifying and resolving vulnerabilities to all Randstad countries.

As ethical hacker you will focus primarily on the white box side of our pentesting projects, working closely with our developers and their code. As our current lead tester moves into a security lead role, you will also take on the role of lead (white box) pentester in the near future.

The role of ethical hacker includes:

  • leading “white box” pentesting projects on our business websites, mobile applications and infrastructure
  • creating actionable assessments in different phases of development of our applications
  • analyzing vulnerabilities and penetration test findings, propose remediation strategies and security requirements, help to mitigate security vulnerabilities at each layer.
  • On a day-to-day basis, contribute to the security community, ensure support and follow-up with the application development and infrastructure teams on resolving the vulnerabilities found.
  • Researching the latest security best practices and technologies, stay aware of any new threats and vulnerabilities and share the information and impact within the team and the Group.
  • Mentoring and training junior team members

your background / profile

  • You have a “hacker mindset”
  • At least 3 years of relevant work experience within security testing
  • Strong understanding of OWASP, penetration testing methodologies, security standards and best practices
  • Ambition to lead pentest projects
  • Ability to work with an international environment and to team up with other security and development teams
  • Ability to read and understand code (Java, Python, React/Angular)
  • Good communication skills in English
  • nice-to-have: Certificates related to competence offensive security - (e.g. OSWE, OSCP, CEH, GIAC GPEN , GIAC GXPN , EC-Council LPT)
  • nice-to-have: Experience in developing applications
  • nice-to-have: Knowledge of cloud security best practices for AWS and GCP

What do you get in return?

You’re the expert and know best, so having the autonomy and trust to use your expertise and skills goes without saying. While this role is for an already independently working mid-level pentester / ethical hacker, we hire for potential and push you to grow. Ambitions to lead a team of pentesters? Great, let’s get you there.

You will land in a welcoming team that aims for high standards and supports each other in achieving those, encourages challenging yourself and learning from mistakes.

Of course you also get:

  • A very diverse IT landscape to work with and the ability for you to develop all different offensive security skill sets
  • plenty of training opportunities and development opportunities within Randstad Group Netherlands, both in your field and in soft skills.
  • a monthly salary between €3.500 and €4.800
  • a monthly benefit budget of 12,347% incl. holiday bonus (up to €592) to spend partially pre-tax on things like extra days off, gym membership, a bike, or simply get paid out.
  • 25 days holidays and the ability to top those up to a maximum of 51 with your benefit budget
  • a fully paid electric company lease car (incl. charge costs) or good mobility budget
  • possibility to go on sabbatical, or to participate in international volunteer projects
  • a generous share purchase plan with 100% bonus shares on top of the shares you buy
