  • Own or implement security fixes in response to reported vulnerabilities.
  • Design and build new security features and enhancements to existing products and services.
  • Participate in the design of new hardware and software to identify security issues and suggest improvements.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Are competent or adept in 1 - 2 (or more!) programming languages, including some combination of Go, Python, and C.
  • Are knowledgeable about networks and relevant security considerations. Comfort with iptables/ipchains/some equivalent is recommended.
  • Are knowledgeable about the Linux security model and hardening considerations, such as ASLR, DEP, SELinux, grsecurity, etc. - Debian expertise is a plus.
  • Have experience building or breaking embedded systems, drivers, or operating systems.

  • Have experience with secure boot, ARM architecture & TrustZone, and/or TPMs and Secure Elements
  • Have experience designing, implementing, or attacking radio and wireless interfaces.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
