Riscure is an ambitious organization specializing in embedded security testing from the semiconductor, payment, Pay TV, mobile and automotive industry. In addition, Riscure is the leading vendor of specialist security testing products. Our main office in the Netherlands has been around since 2001, but we have satellite offices in San Francisco, California and Shanghai, China. We have engaging projects and a constructive work environment based on knowledge sharing. We are looking for self-motivated individuals who would like to embrace the opportunity to drive security forward in our growing company.

Some examples of the activities in practice are programming, fault injection, experimentation with hardware designs, reporting, eating in the Riscure canteen. You will have an opportunity to learn about fault injection and hardware security. Are you the person with a focus on problem-solving, ready to work in our young, open and transparent work environment with ample room for fresh ideas?

What does a day at Riscure look like?

We evaluate the security of products that use embedded and smart card technologies. The main activities of the evaluation process include analyzing threats and weaknesses by taking apart a device’s specifications, code or hardware, and then developing the necessary tools to attack the security. As part of the mission statement of the company (driving security forward), Riscure believes that knowledge sharing is key to innovation and evolution of employees. Time is arranged for personal development and for weekly sharing knowledge events that are organized for everyone to join.

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 in the Riscure knowledge database to ensure it is preserved and shared within Riscure.
