Vulnerability Researcher
Location: Palm Bay, FL.
Required Clearance: Top Secret/SCI (may start with an active Secret)

U.S. Citizenship Mandatory: Due to our US federal government contract, candidates for this position are required to be a US Citizen and will be subject to a background investigation.

Job Description:

Familiarity with at least one common low-level architecture (x86, ARM, etc.) is required, 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 exploitation mitigation techniques and counter-measures is a must.

Some development experience is preferred and some scripting experience is required. Whether in Python, Ruby or some other language, you should be capable of quickly developing the tools needed to help you succeed in your reverse engineering and vulnerability research efforts. If you’ve written a kernel paged pool exploit or a userland stack-based buffer overflow, built your own adaptable instrumentation or integrated a solver to help you identify and reach code.

Projects will be undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers to quickly enhance capabilities or resolve issues in existing tools. Working as part of a team you will also need to be familiar with source management tools such as GIT and team coordination tools like the Atlassian suite of work products.

Required Skills:
• 2+ years of experience with C/C++.
• 1+ years of experience with assembly language (x86/64, ARM, PPC, Mips, etc.).
• Familiarity with at least one scripting language (Python, Ruby, etc.).
• Understanding of exploit mitigations such as DEP and ASLR.
• Experience using reverse engineering tools (IDA Pro, BinaryNinja, Ghidra).
• Experience with debugging tools (WinDbg, gdb, lldb, OllyDbg).
• Familiarity with source management tools.

Since 1999, ITEC has maintained a strong and reputable presence in support of DoD and Intelligence community mission-critical programs.

We are proud of our amazing Company culture. At ITEC, we take excellent care of our employees with competitive salaries, an employee care program and a great benefits package including Medical, Dental, Vision, Paid Time Off and 401k.
