Bishop Fox is the leading authority in offensive security, providing solutions ranging from continuous penetration testing, red teaming, and attack surface management to product, cloud, and application security assessments. We’ve worked with more than a quarter of the Fortune 100, half of the Fortune 10, eight of the top 10 global technology companies, and all of the top global media companies. Our Cosmos platform was named Best Emerging Technology in the 2021 SC Media Awards and our offerings are consistently ranked as “world class” in customer experience surveys. For more than 16 years, we've been contributing and giving back to the security community. We’ve published more than 16 open source tools and 50 security advisories in the last five years alone. Learn more at or follow us on Twitter. 

Given our exceptional growth, we are expanding and hiring a Senior Cloud Security Penetration Tester to join us on this exciting journey. You are a born penetration tester; you see problems -and solutions- in everything. You are driven by the possibility of turning nothing into something. You’ve plundered apps and pillaged networks (legally, of course). You have a passion for hacking that goes beyond a career – it’s a way of life for you. At this point, you may have accumulated a few disclosures, written blog posts, and given some industry talks. If given the chance, you could probably Hack the Gibson. 



With Bishop Fox, your responsibilities would include objective based penetration testing against cloud infrastructure, Kubernetes clusters, traditional network infrastructure, and sometimes the links between these environments.  Some days, you’ll be testing a client’s multi-account AWS environment and trying to escalate from a developer in the development AWS account to administrative access in the production AWS account; other days, you’ll be starting from a compromised application scenario and trying to gain unintended access to sensitive data. Every day at Bishop Fox, you’ll be learning. 

As a senior-level consultant, you’ll work on a variety of projects including short-term engagements and extended programs - you’ll solve challenging technical problems and build creative solutions in a client-facing role. As a trusted advisor, you’ll provide your expert opinion to help our clients navigate difficult business decisions – including how to prioritize critical findings. And as a senior penetration tester, you’ll lead small teams on one-of-a-kind engagements, mentor co-workers, and contribute significantly to the advancement of our consulting practice. 



  • Experience operating in at least one major cloud provider’s (AWS, GCP, Azure) ecosystem in depth. You know how to provision and secure the basic services (i.e., object storage, virtual machines, serverless functions, containers) and are at the point where you can learn new cloud services as you come across them 
  • Experience with objective based penetration testing (e.g., internal penetration testing), where you are given a specific starting position and the purpose of the assessment is to accomplish as many of the objectives as you can, in as many ways as possible, in the time allotted 
  • Comfortable reading and understanding IAM policies, and how IAM relates to the principle of least privilege 
  • Experience with Kubernetes security is highly preferred (RBAC, privesc, etc.) 
  • Experience with Infrastructure as code, GitOps, and CI/CD tooling and processes are all preferred   
  • Understanding security fundamentals and common application vulnerabilities (e.g., OWASP Top Ten) in addition to more modern web app and enterprise app vulnerabilities 
  • 3+ years of network-focused offensive security experience in supporting a variety of engagements with clients from a variety of industries 
  • 5+ years of professional experience in the IT Field, including several years of client security consulting experience 
  • Additional experience in IT, security engineering, system and network security, authentication and security protocols, and/or applied cryptography 
  • Scripting/programming skills (Go, Python, JavaScript, etc.) 
  • Network and web-related protocol knowledge (e.g., TCP/IP, UP, IPSEC, HTTP, HTTPS, routing protocols) 
  • Superior communication skills (i.e., written and verbal) - including the ability to work as a mentor on engagements 
  • OSCP/E, GPEN, and any cloud security certifications are helpful, but not a necessity 
  • Advanced relevant academic training is a definite bonus, i.e., Bachelor’s in Computer Science
