Join our team dedicated to developing and executing innovative solutions in support of customer mission success. Novetta is committed to cultivating a diverse, inclusive workplace culture, embracing our differences and perspectives to build a stronger, more successful company.

Job Description: 

Novetta is seeking a Vulnerability Researcher with a passion for solving challenges, a thirst for learning new technologies, and making a difference! You will be a part of a team of dedicated professionals solving our customers' most challenging problems. Candidates must be able to defeat advanced security techniques. Projects will be undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers to quickly enhance capabilities or resolve issues in existing tools.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Familiarity with at least one common low-level architecture (x86, ARM, etc) is important, as is the ability to conduct vulnerability research against applications compiled for that architecture.
  • Experience with software protection and binary armoring is a plus, and familiarity with modern exploit mitigation techniques and counter-measures is a must.
  • Experience with one of the four platforms Windows, Linux, iOS, embedded:
    • Specific platform: Windows 4-6 years of related experience

Desired Qualifications:

  • Development experience is desired, but at least some scripting experience is required. Whether in python, ruby, or some other language, you should be capable of quickly developing the instruments needed to help you succeed in your reverse engineering and vulnerability research efforts.
  • The most capable candidates will have a variety of low-level operating systems experience as well as cross- platform vulnerability research. If you've written everything from a kernel paged pool exploit to a simple userland stack-based buffer overflow, built your own adaptable instrumentation and integrated a solver to help you identify and reach code, or modified emulators and JIT engines to add your own instrumentation to help you identify entire classes of vulnerabilities, you'll be right at home.

Security Clearance:

  • Active TS SCI with Polygraph
