Are you a cyber security person and passionate about learning and developing?
I say more, how about doing this in a friendly team and leadership environment that stimulate your development? Introducing the iFood Cyber Team!
Here we have the constant challenge of keeping the largest Brazilian delivery company safe with real integration and collaboration from other teams and a great diversity of technology stacks and after all, we cannot maintain this level without stimulating training and individual development, right?

We are looking for a Security Engineer to join our Red Team to perform Pentests on web and mobile applications, infrastructure, networks and others. As part of this activity, he/she will report the identified points to the responsible teams, as well as suggest action plans to correct/remediate the vulnerabilities, prepare kill chains or PoC to demonstrate the exploitation of them when necessary.
It is desirable that the Security Engineer has a vision of automation and scalability for the processes in the area, that he/she also has the autonomy to perform and develop their own security testing exercises (Tech day, Pentestings, War Games, Phishing Simulations, etc.), because we are looking for an innovative professional who likes the challenge of testing controls and barriers, who can create a healthy culture working together with the defense team, development team, among others. We want people who are self-motivated and passionate about cyber culture.

Therefore, it is essential that the Analyst has experience in relationships with different areas of the group and also with external actors, partners and suppliers that we use to operationalize this process and services of the Red Team area.
