You'll also need great time management so that you can balance scheduled client engagements with directing your own research to keep up to date with the latest vulnerabilities, attacks, and countermeasures.

All our team members have a strong desire to get root, have an adaptable and flexible approach to work, and have a willingness to support each other and the wider team.
