Senior Technical Security Consultant

Job Title: Senior Technical Security Consultant
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark (remote working within Denmark possible)
Reports to: Regional Manager, Nordics

Role description

As a senior technical security consultant, you will be engaged in various projects where you will be assessing the security posture of different technologies for our clients. The role entails technical assessments of the client systems and facilitates penetration testing, privacy considerations, continuity and business relevant risk evaluation.

The role will have you engage with the client prior, during and after the assessment ends. All outcome of these assessments will end with a final delivery that is a report and a presentation of the findings and recommendations for mitigation.

Examples of the types of projects are listed below, but is not an exhaustive or finalized list:

  • Web applications and the system in its entirety
  • Internal infrastructure assessments                                   
  • Mobile application security                                                              
  • Web API assessments                                                                      
  • Red/purple Team engagements

The variety in the engagements are big and as such you will be exposed to a large number of sectors, technologies and clients. This helps drive the constant need for security experts.

Many of the engagements are time limited and you will therefore be able to finalize projects and move onto new. However, many clients grow a close and trusted relationship with our consultants and there will also be many opportunities to drive longer term projects and transformations.

The technical competencies you possess will be brought out fully and the integration with our risk management consultants will be used to grow both you and the end product.

The culture of NCC Europe allows for great influence over your job, how things are done and in general a very flat organizational structure. This allows you to be heard and impact both your daily function, but also our company as a whole.
