NCC Group (formerly Matasano Security, iSEC Partners, and Intrepidus Group) - Austin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Sunnyvale, CA

It's July, and I can assure you that all of our offices have better A/C than anyone else on this thread.

Many of you will be familiar with NCC Group's legacy US names - Matasano Security, iSEC Partners, and Intrepidus Group. We're now all officially integrated under the NCC Group name and one happy family.

The bottom line: if you love security and research, NCC Group just may be a perfect fit for you.

What do we do exactly? Penetration testing, security analysis, and cutting-edge research into current technologies and attacks (breaking things). You spend most of your day thinking about security systems and how they can break. You get to be creative and have a lot of freedom to be clever while learning new technologies at a very fast pace. Engagements are usually 2-4 weeks long and in a year you will be exposed to 15-20 products and technology stacks. Your work will typically initiate person-months of security improvements in products millions of people use. You will have access to senior engineers/architects and your findings/ideas will be heard by senior decision makers. You will have enormous impact in making the software people use safer. All of our consultants are also security researchers, with dedicated research time. Not too shabby!

Out of curiosity: I'm German and just had a look at the German NCC Group website's career section. It tried to redirect me to the UK site (the redirection is broken, btw.) and when I went there to have a look at the vacancies, there was nothing for Germany. Are you currently hiring here as well?

Sorry, I really don't have any idea what our friends across the pond are doing with regards to hiring.

(BTW, for those who miss him, Jeff is alive and well, but was super-busy with client work last week.)

You had me at A/C bro!

Do you allow remote work or only onsite?

The majority of our work is done from our regional offices or on client sites, but we do offer remote work options for senior-level candidates willing to travel. I hope that helps!

Air conditioning?

Indeed! It keeps the beer cold and the hackers awake.
