Security Engineer with Python

diconium romania S.R.L. • Bucharest


We are looking for a software engineer to contribute to the development of a security test automation framework. The framework is written in python and runs on a Linux-based platform, so we are looking for someone who is happy getting their hands dirty writing efficient and comprehensible object-oriented python code - ideally while taking advantage of the data manipulation and conciseness that python makes possible. The more Linux experience (and enthusiasm) you have the better. This is a great opportunity to get in at the beginning of a new but rapidly growing automotive security team with a company that is part of the Volkswagen Group.

Your duties

  • Development of  new features and maintenance of a (cyber-)security test automation framework for automotive ECU's (python)
  • Development of test cases (in python) to verify the implementation and integration of security features in automotive ECU's
  • Implementation of unit and integration tests for the test framework itself
  • Porting the project's software integration and deployment pipeline to a CI/CD environment
  • Devising new testing concepts and technologies (both hardware and software) to expand the security test coverage to new areas of the products

Your profile

    • Must have:

    • Python development experience (4+ years) on Linux

    • Command line and standard *nix tools

    • Shell scripting (bash)

    • Revision control systems (git)

    • Networking fundamentals (layers of the protocol stack, TCP/IP, client/server etc.)

    • Fluent English (German advantageous)

Nice to have:

  • Test automation and scripting experience
  • Software integration and deployment pipelines
  • Linux kernel/system/toolchain hardening
  • Containerisation technologies
  • Networking security technologies (e.g. firewall, TLS, etc.)
  • Cryptography
  • Software packaging under Linux (e.g. deb or rpm)
  • Secure OS/trusted execution environment
  • Pentesting/offensive security
  • Reverse engineering
  • Automotive industry experience
