Security Engineer - Red Team

IT & Security – Security
We are AID GmbH: 
AID-Autonomous Intelligent Driving is bringing together the world’s top software, roboticists and AI talent to ignite a human centered revolution in autonomous driving. By understanding the human challenges as well as the engineering ones, the technology we are testing today on the streets of Munich will become the backbone of a universal self-driving system – capable of improving life in urban environments for billions of people. With the agility of a start-up and the support of Audi (VW Group), AID is free to craft an autonomous world that works for everyone – from manufacturers to passengers to city planners to pedestrians. For us, the future isn’t about merely making vehicles more autonomous, it’s about making people more autonomous.

AID is looking for an ethical hacker that can deliver technical firepower to execute tactical, offensive security assessments across our environments. This individual should have extensive experience across the attack lifecycle and demonstrated capacity to deliver goal oriented assessments that positively benefit our prevention, detection and response capabilities.
Security is of paramount importance to the development and testing of AID’s self driving system (SDS). It enables engineers to rapidly iterate the subtle consequences of any change to the SDS. In this Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Offensive Security role, you will help ensure the highest level of security of AID’s autonomous vehicles by engaging with all stages of the development lifecyle, from threat analysis to penetration testing. The goal is to identify security flaws in product designs and/or implementations related to AID’s autonomous vehicles and its connected ecosystem.
