Offensive Security Engineer

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Group (USA)

We're looking for hands-on cloud hackers with expertise and passion in identifying and exploiting complex security problems in distributed, multi-tenant services and infrastructure. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) provides Infrastructure-as-a-Service. We operate distributed systems at a high scale, worldwide. These are the foundation of our cloud environment. Our customers run their businesses on our cloud, and our mission is to provide them with a best-in-class and ever-expanding set of cloud-based services.

Within OCI, the Offensive Security group conducts penetration tests, hardware security research, and operates our red team. We ensure the security of software and hardware that run our cloud infrastructure, and strive to continuously improve our security stance. The OCI Offensive Security group works as a team. We don't try to fit people into predefined roles. We bring together the right people who can enhance the capability of the team, and build roles around the person's skills and interests.

These are exciting times in our space. We are growing fast, still at an early stage and working on ambitious new initiatives. A security-focused engineer at any level can have significant technical and business impact. Come shape the future of one of the largest clouds on earth with us. Overall, OCI Offensive Security team performs a variety of work ranging from penetration testing, fuzzing, red-teaming and tool development.


Some of our people have qualifications like the ones listed below. Our ideal candidate is passionate about security and furthering their knowledge every day. You enjoy diving into complex source code audits to reveal subtle security vulnerabilities, writing new tools such as fuzzers in languages such as C/C , Python, Ruby, Go or Java, tearing apart an undocumented file format or network protocol and coming up with novel techniques to solve unique and interesting security problems. We hope you like working at scale as much as we do much as we do, because Oracle has no shortage of it. You'll review new services, including their integration points with existing services. You'll also guide security projects beyond the scope of performing assessment work: identifying and disclosing vulnerabilities to 3rd party vendor or design of complex systems and services that improve quantity or quality of offensive security output.
