I’ve been a Pentester at Ambersail for over three years. There is never a dull moment. So many clients to test make it really interesting – and challenging. Everyone is trying to find some juicy weakness – it gets competitive at times. The guys will support you all the way and they’re a great bunch to work with. Watch out for T at 3.

2018… We Are Looking For Penetration Testers

Are you curious about technology? How well networks and applications are designed and built?
How they can be constructed and subverted?

If you are someone who is interested in configuring networks or developing applications keep reading. If you also have an interest in cyber security we have just the job for you.

We are looking for someone to join our IT security test team. Someone who has an open mind and enjoys the challenge of finding weaknesses with networks and technology.

You’ll be working with clients to help them get secure. Reviewing all sorts of technology and networks from all over the world. Scoping. Testing. Reporting. Advising.

Initially you will be performing vulnerability testing. As you develop you will be offered the chance to move into the Penetration Test Team.
Prior experience of running scan tools such as Qualys, Nessus, Appscan or other tools will be desirable, but not necessary as training will be provided.
If you have any experience with the following – a definite advantage…

  • Shell scripting and systems admin experience on Windows and Linux systems
  • Web application development experience
  • Network infrastructure knowledge including IPv4 and IPv6 routing and configuration
  • A demonstrable interest in cyber security

How Can We Sum Up Working At Ambersail?

Sumatra Lintong!

It is a coffee we know and love at Ambersail. There is a pot always on the go at the office. Sourced from a coffee and tea Merchant in deepest mid Wales.

We buy the coffee because it tastes great. We chose the merchant because their guys are specialists and offer a fantastic service. Something which we value above all in business.

Specialists that really care about their products.

You can expect the same at Ambersail. We don’t want to be the next giant corporate. We really don’t care much for ‘global domination’.

We want to be the very best at what we do. This means finding security weaknesses and helping good people remove these from their business systems.

And to do this – we also need good people. People who know their stuff. Who understand networks and applications.
Who know Penetration Testing is more than just running scripts.

We work closely here at Ambersail and everyone has something to offer. Our company is built on the experience and contribution of the people that work for us. It forms the cornerstone of everything that we do.

Ambersailians can expect great training, great salary, great opportunity for working with new technologies. And of course … great coffee.


A Penetration Testing Career At Ambersail.

We take skills development seriously at Ambersail. As a result you will  receive formal training on professional and technical subjects such as CREST. More importantly you will get immersed in security assessment and penetration testing projects. This means working for large and small companies on a range of technology platforms.

Of course being able to understand and dissect technical environments is important. This is essential for security assessment. In addition, a penetration testing career with Ambersail will also focus on professional skills. So often overlooked with other companies.

You will learn how to communicate with clients. To gather evidence to support and defend findings. To understand and scope work engagements. To present issues and workable solutions. These are essential skills for any consultant.

At all stages you will have the backing of our team. You can expect technical guidance. Documentation reviews. Peer support. We work as one big team where everyone is important and has something valuable to contribute.
