Job Description


Meltwater’s collaborative Security Team needs a passionate Security Tester to continue to progress Meltwater’s security forward. Working with a group of fun loving people who are genuinely excited and passionate about security, there would be more laughs than facepalms. If you believe that improving security is about constantly moving technology forward to be more secure, and shifting security tools and checks earlier in the development lifecycle and enable teams to use such tooling themselves, then you’ll feel at home on Meltwater’s Security Team!

At Meltwater we want to ensure that we can have autonomous, empowered and highly efficient teams, and part of the Security Team’s responsibility is to ensure teams can continue to operate that way without compromising the security of our systems, services and data. As a Security Tester at Meltwater you’ll be working with teams that have a very diverse technology stack. You will plan, run and analyze results of pentest engagements that we do as part of our internal Penetration testing as a Service, a security awareness program that we offer to help teams identify and remediate vulnerabilities in their infrastructure and application stack.


In this role, you will help teams identify and visualize vulnerabilities, and ultimately collaborate to find ways and strategies to mitigate business risk. This role will require you to have strong communication and collaboration skills along with a deep understanding of both application and infrastructure level vulnerabilities, as you will be working with teams that operate and maintain their entire technology stacks themselves.

  • Break everything you touch, and … yeah you know... help teams find solutions to the problems

  • Perform penetrations tests of both infrastructure and web applications, document and contextualize issues with respect to business impact

  • Create reports that are comprehensive and accurate that can be understood by people with varying technical background

  • Work with teams to communicate findings, recommendations and knowledge to stakeholders

  • Educate and collaborate with teams on ways to catch vulnerabilities earlier in their development process

  • Research emerging attack vectors and techniques

  • Perform ongoing, proactive analysis of Meltwaters internal and external attack surface

Skills & Requirements

Skills and background

  • Curiosity that seeks to explore new techniques and attack vectors

  • Strong collaboration skills with experience working cross functionally with a diverse group of stakeholders

  • Strong communication skills and the ability to provide technical guidance to both technical and non-technical audiences

  • Laughing, yes, we like to have fun while we work :)

  • Deep expertise in industry accepted security best practices/standards/policies such as NIST, OWASP, CIS, MITRE&[email protected]

  • Offensive security testing with a strong understanding of how to find common web and network vulnerabilities

  • Experience in at least one public cloud provider, preferably AWS

  • Self motivated learner that continuously wants to share knowledge to improve others

  • Hands-on experience in Burp Suite (or other interception proxies or application security testing tools)

The ideal candidate is someone who comes from a red team, penetration test or security focused QA background.

You’re someone that can learn fast and apply offensive security knowledge to a diverse technology stack and eager to collaborate with teams to productively remediate business risk in a common sense manner.

It’s a plus if you have experience in thread modelling and/or programming/scripting.

Are you passionate about identifying vulnerabilities and helping teams find ways to remediate them? Come work with us! Let’s pwn some stuff together!

What you can expect from us:

  • We have an amazing culture and live our core values every day. You will have the opportunity to work alongside exceptional people who want to succeed together.
  • Challenging problems to solve in collaboration with other international teams
  • Access to the tools you need to solve those challenging problems.
  • Opportunities to travel to other Meltwater Engineering offices across the globe.
  • Community and personal development: periodic hackathons, self-organized tech guilds, and more
  • The ability to attend conferences and access to training allowing you to level up your skills
  • During the Pandemic, all of our engineering employees are working remotely, so you can be located in the United States, Canada, or Western Europe
