Job Description

At Denim Group, we are creating a world where technology is trusted. As a Senior Application Security Consultant, you will break stuff - from web services to mobile apps to embedded systems. You will spread security to the world as you train clients in secure development, design, and testing. You will be a trusted partner in defense and remediation, crafting fixes for security defects and protecting private data handled by legacy and emergent technology.

Be an Expert: Your working knowledge of current threats and countermeasures encountered in the application security arena, paired with support from other experts at Denim Group, will create the elite set of skills needed to assess and remediate diverse applications from a broad array of industries.

Learn from Experience: The team at Denim Group has tons of experience in large-scale software development projects, application security, and information security. From small apps to massive systems, legacy to bleeding edge technologies, you'll be surrounded by folks who've seen a bit of everything.

Be Part of a Team: We know that employees are our strongest asset. We invest in employee development through training and an emphasis on a positive, yet challenging, learning environment. You'll collaborate daily with some of the most creative, intelligent, and fun people in your field.

Be a Contributor to the Community: Denim Group helped to founder the local OWASP chapter, a strong contributor to the application security community as a whole, and strives to improve the industry.

Grow with Denim Group: You will report and present application security project results to the top security professionals, and as part of our talented security team, you'll have the opportunity to broaden your skills and improve Denim Group's application security offerings.

You'll definitely need:

* Strong proficiency with web application security
* Proficiency with mobile application security
* Working knowledge of modern web service hosting technologies, development languages and frameworks
* Proficiency with SAST and DAST solutions
* Experience in or working familiarity with modern DevOps and CI/CD
* A knack for solving tricky problems without losing your cool
* The ability to clearly communicate in speech and writing
* Experience effectively speaking to groups of important people
* The ability to coach developers through vulnerability resolution and teach security principles, vulnerabilities and solutions
* Computer Science or related 4-year degree

You'll blow our minds if you have:

* Experience independently executing or leading application security assessments
* Direct Experience in modern DevOps and Cloud hosting
* Experience testing or developing mobile applications
* Experience testing IoT devices and software
* Reverse-engineering experience (IDA Pro, Java/.NET disassembly, process monitoring, etc.)
* Experience integrating touchless DAST and SAST into a development pipeline
* Experience building or supporting an organization's software security program
* Experience quickly learning and using new technologies and frameworks, implementing them in your work, and training others to use them
* Ability to support sales efforts with technical expertise
* Ability to work as a team lead or as an individual
* Superior problem-solving skills including the ability to review and ensure the quality of the security projects under your supervision

We try our best to make Denim Group a great place to work, so we offer:

* Generous paid time off, additional paid time off for tenure, holidays, and flexible schedules to ensure you get a life
* Two retirement plan options with employer sponsored matching so you can quit working someday
* Employer sponsored medical insurance so you can go to the doctor if you're sick
* Employer sponsored life insurance and disability insurance (I'd rather not describe this one)
* Optional dental and vision for sparkly teeth and extra smart glasses
* Employer sponsored activities and events for extra fun
* Paid training and certifications for extra smarts
* Employee-developed tenure program that includes:
* A totally customized comic book cover starring you as the hero (or villain) you are inside
* A 30-day paid sabbatical so you can get a much needed break from us because everyone deserves a break
