  • Security Consultant - penetration testing
  • Permanent opportunity
  • Hamilton

About the Company:

This is an opportunity for a vibrant, enthusiastic, and experienced Security Consultant - penetration testing to join a Hamilton based DevOps team.

About the Role:

We’re on the hunt for a skilled Security Consultant, reporting to the People Leader for the Cyber Security squad in the High Security value stream. This squad is a small, diverse skill set of ~5 people working in a collaborative ‘hacker’ culture.

This is a rare opportunity to move away from consultancy work and towards hardware and software-based security research and internal pentesting with no hard deadlines. Although this role sits within our High Security value stream, the scope is wide and covers a large chunk of our products and services, making this a high-impact opportunity to get best security practices baked-in to the product development cycle. We want you to be the guide rail at the top of the cliff, rather than the ambulance at the bottom

This is a permanent full-time salaried position (Min 40 hours per week to Max 45 hours per week) located in Melville, Hamilton, New Zealand.

Due to the high security nature of some projects, we would like to hire someone who can work towards gaining security clearance from the NZ Security Intelligence Service. Please see more information on the link below to see if you qualify.



  • Performing internal penetration testing of both in house and integrated third party solutions
  • A key member of the Cybersecurity Advisory and Triage group
  • Reviewing new features from a security angle
  • Running threat modelling sessions
  • Vulnerability monitoring
  • Mentoring developers and testers around cyber security
  • CVSS 3.1 scoring of vulnerabilities in the context of a cyber/physical system.
  • Evaluating and raising CVEs
  • Maintaining hardening guides and other security documentation
  • Scoping engagements for external penetration testing
  • When not working on the items above you can expect to be doing a fair bit of in-depth research on our physical access control solution. This includes items from embedded devices, Linux based headless controllers all the way to Windows services, cloud-based solutions, and thick clients.



About you:

  • OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) or equivalent (Highly Desirable)
  • 5 years' experience in a similar role or a Bachelor of Information & Communications Technologies (or equivalent qualification)
  • A creative problem solver, prepared to lean into the unknown and open to new learning
  • Someone who shares knowledge freely and cares about making things better
  • Articulating risks and options in a widely digestible format for both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Excellent collaborator and communicator


Note: Must be eligible to work full-time in New Zealand.

Essential: Applicants need to have a right to work in New Zealand with a valid visa and be currently present in the Country.
