At Vulnerability Research Labs we have spent more than a decade becoming a technical leader in cyber security. We became a technical leader in the field because we believe in our mission – to be at the forefront of cyber security and deliver unparalleled capabilities that solve our customer’s hardest problems. We offer the opportunity to work on diverse technologies with hard working developers in an interactive company with a flat organizational structure.

We’re currently seeking Software Engineers with experience in C++ and Python development to join our team. As part of our software engineering group, you will join top-notch developers who design, engineer, and deliver software products to our end customers. We are looking for:

Our day-to-day at Vulnerability Research Labs:
• Developers spend most of their time doing what they love, solving problems with code
• Writing cool NEW code – some days on Windows, others on Linux
• Poking around the internals of various operating systems (with Windbg, Immunity Debugger/Ollybdg, IDA Pro, gdb, lldb) discovering new features, vulnerabilities and techniques
• Testing out ideas and automating code using a virtual lab

Skills you will need and we will enhance:
• Detailed understanding of malware techniques, defenses, and counter measures
• Network programming and protocol analysis
