You'll Need To Have:

 - Experience using and customizing security static analysis tools such as Fortify, AppScan, Coverity, or Checkmarx

  • Experience in software security testing, methodologies and frameworks
  • Proficiency in reading, writing, and auditing compiled languages like C, C++, or Java and interpreted languages like Python or Javascript, and capability to pick up new languages/technologies
  • Familiarity with common vulnerabilities and attack vectors
  • The ability to communicate complicated technical issues and the risks they pose to programmers, network engineers, system administrators and management

We'd Love To See:

  • Experience providing security training to developers
