About Coalfire

Coalfire Federal is a market leading cybersecurity consultancy firm that provides independent and tailored advice, assessments, technical testing and a full suite of cyber engineering services to Federal agency customers. Coalfire Federal along with its parent company, Coalfire, has an unparalleled client list with deep customer relationships with leading cloud and technology providers including Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google and Oracle and Federal agencies.  Coalfire has been a cybersecurity thought leader for nearly 20 years, and has offices throughout the United States and Europe and is committed to making the world a safer place by solving our clients’ toughest security challenges. 


We are seeking to add to our small team of diverse infosec talent. We do a wide variety of infosec projects across a wide variety of technologies, and as such, find that well-rounded hackers with experience in many different areas of tech and infosec provide the best fit for our group. While most of our work is in the realm of app sec, we still have do a good bit of network pen test, as well as adversarial emulation gigs (Phishing, red teaming.) If you fancy variety in your work, we may be a great fit for you.


What you'll do

Why you want to work for Coalfire Federal. We hack all the things, from managed cloud environments to custom mobile applications, to enormous corporate internal networks. Our clients range from leading Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to the Federal government, giving us a wide stack of technologies to win against. Our name is well-known in the cybersecurity space due to our high standard of work provided to some of the largest clients in the world. While we work together well as a team, we encourage everyone to spend time on developing tools and talks that further their careers, as well as keep Coalfire at the forefront of the industry. Everyone on our team lives and breathes cybersecurity – if you do as well, we’d love to talk to you.


We do our best to continue learning, finding risks, and improving our client’s security. We leverage several different tools including Kali, Burp Suite, and Cobalt Strike. We don’t shy away from using what gets the job done. 


What you'll bring

What you have. While your technical interview will speak for itself, due to your interest in penetration testing, you likely have some pen testing certs already (OSCP, OSCE, GPEN, eJPT, etc.). You might also have a CISSP or other, more broad security certs. A bachelor’s degree or higher indicates your dedication to completing lofty goals but isn’t necessarily required for the position. If you’re a self-starter, can walk the walk, and convince our team that you know your stuff, we’ll be happy to bring you onboard. You are an effective communicator with a varying audience, from system administrators all the way up to the C-suite. A security clearance doesn’t hurt either.


Where we break stuff. Most of our work is done remotely. However, you may need to travel from time to time. Some of our clients prefer or require onsite testing due to the sensitivity of their networks. If you’re in the northern Virginia area this may cut down on the travel needs.


Who to talk to. If you’d like to throw your hat in the ring, send your resume!
