Job ID: 304

Two Six Technologies is looking to add a Lead Cybersecurity Research - Embedded Systems to our team.  You will work with a range of clients from the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to the country’s largest ISPs to innovative tech startups. You will become a trusted advisor while learning and performing valuable technical and industry skills. This role is technical at its core – you will develop new capabilities in program analysis, apply data science and machine learning to new problems, and find security vulnerabilities in systems.

The ideal candidate should be comfortable with ambiguity and forging your own path; our small team setting will provide you the opportunity for outsized impact. While you will receive extensive training, mentorship, and coaching, you must be comfortable executing against goals independently since there’s no playbook for our innovative research work. 

We are seeking candidates with an interest in research as well as a commitment to developing solutions for the real world.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Taking on complex technical problems for which there is often no known answer. 
  • Analyze complex systems, to find security vulnerabilities in software, firmware, and hardware, familiarize yourself with unknown architectures and write some code to support and automate tasks.
  • Communicate your work with detailed written and verbal reports to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Minimum of 5 years of experience with programming/scripting languages (e.g., Go, C, Rust, Python) and Linux
  • Minimum of 5 years experience executing cybersecurity principles and a strong interest in learning more
  • Experience with static analysis or software reverse engineering
  • Familiarity with tools and techniques for binary analysis

Nice if you have:

  • Experience building or securing embedded devices and other digital systems
  • Experience with dynamic analysis, fuzzing techniques, and debugging
  • Experience in a client-facing technical role
  • Experience with embedded binary reverse engineering (ARM, RTOS, etc.)
  • Bachelor’s (or higher) degree in computer science, engineering, or a related field
  • Experience with Binary Ninja/Ghidra scripting

Clearance Requirements:
