Company: Coalfire Federal
Location: Reston
Posted on: June 19, 2022

Job Description:

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.
We don't have a set list here, other than that our aim is to build a technologically diverse team. We like to have a variety of ex-developers, comp sci degrees, self-taught hackers, and reverse engineers in our fold. If this sounds like your bag, please read on. OSCP is a great benchmark to have, but not required. You can work on that after joining us.
Things we love:
* Learning new tech* Breaking new and old tech* Using ghidra to reverse those pesky binaries* Finding new risk exposure on pen tests* Leveraging source code to enhance our burp-based dynamic security testing* Sketching out threat models* Deconstructing embedded/IoT firmware* Symbolic execution* Fuzzing* CTF's* Actually enhancing the security of our clients
Tools we use:
We like cobalt strike and we love burp suite and kali. We write burp extensions and do R&D projects when it makes sense. We use ghidra, binja, pycharm, visual studio, USB protocol analyzers and whatever tool or tech is best for the job. We use MacBook's with fusion, big monitors, and clicky keyboards...blah blah blah.
Location:This is a weird one these days. We are currently remote at-home but do want to get back to a centrally located option in the Fairfax, Virginia area. We have recently begun getting once or twice a month, optionally, to work together to enhance the intangibles that doing so brings: building relationships, spit balling ideas together, fostering a hacker-helper culture, and, of course, eating and awesome lunch together on the company dime.
Clients:We're based in Northern Virginia, so a lot of our work is for the government--about 50%. The other half is done for commercial companies. We like this mix.
Certs & training:We aren't huge on certs and training beyond OffSec but believe strongly in continual enrichment and use many paths to do so. College Tuition, OffSec training, and other asynchronous courses have yielded the best results in our experience, but we remain open-minded to always find new ways.
Security Clearance:We don't hire "clearances", we hire talent and aptitude to learn. When folks first come on, they will be put in for public trust and government security clearances--in the meantime, they will focus on projects that don't require them.

Our people make Coalfire great. We work together on interesting things and achieve exceptional results. We act as trusted advisors to our customers and are committed to client-focused innovation as well as innovation in the industries that we serve. Coalfire offers our people the chance to grow professionally with colleagues they like and respect while tackling challenges that stretch their minds and expand their skill sets. We're connected by our desire to innovate and our goal of helping to make the world a more secure place.
Coalfire's high energy, challenging, and fast-paced work environment will keep you engaged and motivated. Work-life balance is a core priority at Coalfire - we work hard and we play hard, and the two often overlap. We host family-friendly events and happy hours along with professional meetups and informal networking sessions, and we're active in our communities. Plus, we offer great benefits, including:

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance with an employer contribution
  • Flexible paid time off (employees are encouraged to spend four weeks away from the office each year)
  • A generous 401(k) plan
  • A corporate wellness program
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Certification reimbursement
    Coalfire is an EEO employer.
