Two Six Technologies is seeking a Principal Firmware Reverse Engineer. You will work with a range of clients supporting national security missions. You will become a trusted advisor while learning and performing valuable technical and industry skills. This role is technical at its core – along with in-depth reverse engineering and exploit development you will transition those findings into capabilities.
Job Responsibilities & Duties Given the technical nature of this role, experience in computer science, computer engineering, or a similar field is required. Significant proven experience in reverse engineering (RE) or vulnerability research (VR) can show your fit even if your background is outside of one of these fields.
You should be comfortable taking on complex technical problems for which there is often no known answer. You should be comfortable with ambiguity and forging your own path; our small team setting will provide you 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 breaking unique complex systems.
Qualifications & Skills- Required:
Bachelor’s (or higher) degree in computer science, engineering, or a related field (solid knowledge in RE or VR may substitute for a specific degree)
Minimum 5 years of experience firmware development using low-level programming languages (C and at least one assembly language), scripting languages (e.g., Python), and the *nix command line
Strong familiarity with cybersecurity principles and a strong interest in learning more
Minimum 5 years of experience with common disassemblers/decompilers and reverse engineering tools (IDA, Ghidra, Binary Ninja)
Experience providing technical/functional direction and developing techniques to implement, ensuring customer satisfaction.
Experience leading a small technical team of engineers and researchers
Active Top Secret clearance
Must be willing to obtain and maintain a SCI & Polygraph clearance
Nice to have, but not expected:
Familiarity with Binary Ninja API or Ghidra scripting
Familiarity building or securing embedded devices and other digital systems
Familiarity with embedded binary reverse engineering (ARM, RTOS, etc.)
Familiarity with basic cryptography design and implementation concepts
Experience in a client-facing technical role
An active Top Secret DoD or IC security clearance
Active Top Secret clearance, and ability to obtain a Polygraph
