Security Analyst

Congratulations! You just found a job description for the challenging role of Security Analyst. We have engaging projects, an open office environment, and we are looking for self-motivated individuals who are eager to carve out their niche in our growing company.

Riscure is an ambitious organization specializing in embedded security testing for leading international clients 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 in 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.  Are you the person with a focus on complex evaluation, ready to work with clients from all over the world, 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, usually in teams of 2-4 security analysts. 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. Results of this go into a report, and we give recommendations for solving these problems.

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.

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 communication with our customers is in English.

What skills should I have to be able to join?

  • You have successfully completed an academic course in Information Technology or Electrical Engineering
  • You don’t mind getting your hands dirty: the core of our work is digging deep into the technical details of both hardware and software of devices.
  • You have 0 to 3 years work experience.
  • You are capable of completing security evaluations unassisted.
  • You have an excellent command of the English language, both verbally and written.
  • You have good social skills and you are a pleasant co-worker who likes to collaborate in a multidisciplinary team of security specialists.
  • You are flexible, and you enjoy travelling to customers in Europe, North America, or Asia every now and then.

Ok, so what does Riscure offer me?

Most of our customers are large, international organizations based in North America, Europe, and Asia. It is very important for us to be able to provide these customers with high-quality, professional services. In our daily work, this entails rating content over appearances, and creating an open and sincere work environment with ample room for fresh ideas. Riscure is also one of the world’s most advanced players in the field of side channel attacks and embedded technology evaluation. This makes for a unique workplace with fascinating customers.
