Are you interested in the latest technologies, exciting projects and a great team that would like to welcome you into its midst? Perfectly. Then enrich our team!

At Zielpuls we concentrate on a very specific field of activity: technology-oriented management consulting. Our team forms the bridge between strategic consulting and technical service providers. Together, we plan, develop and coordinate complete technological solutions. A substantial understanding of strategic issues, sound technical competence and an enjoyment of new, highly complex challenges make us unique in our field.

Tasks at the pulse of time

  • You are the competent contact person for our customers when it comes to highly innovative topics and concepts – thanks to you, everything runs smoothly.
  • Your heart beats faster when you independently deal with the conception, execution and documentation of penetration tests, both at component and vehicle level, as well as in connection with back-end systems.
  • You work closely with our interdisciplinary automotive security team.
  • You apply the latest attack scenarios, methods and tools and continue your education in the field of automotive security on your own initiative.
  • With vehicle functions and future E/E architectures becoming increasingly networked and complex, you keep an eye on overall security, also across different development areas
  • In addition, you will drive the expansion of the Automotive Security Penetration Testing field, e.g. by setting up your own Automotive Testing Lab and contributing your experience and ideas.
  • Furthermore, you multiply your knowledge within the company, for example through technical coaching or the development of training courses.
  • You inspire the customer even before projects arise in the acquisition of new topics and business areas

Your profile brings us to our goal

  • You have many years of practical experience or a successful degree with a focus on IT security, computer science, electrical engineering or a comparable field.
  • Good knowledge of penetration testing of embedded software / systems (embedded hardware skills are a plus) and their relevant interfaces as well as of current attack methods and typical attack patterns
  • Many years of practical experience, preferably in the automotive industry
  • Certifications, for example from Offensive Security (OSCP, OSEP or OSCE), are desirable.
  • Knowledge of software development with C/C++ and script languages
  • Knowledge in the areas of network technology and experience with operating systems or shell and script language (desirable experience with Linux, Unix or BSDs)
  • Experience in the commissioning of hardware and software test benches
  • Ideally experience in one or more of the following areas: Vulnerability scanning, IT security, cryptography, reverse engineering or automotive bus systems.
  • Hands-on mentality and fun in developing creative approaches to solutions
  • Understanding of technical architectures and experience in establishing and implementing processes
  • Ability to work in a team and enthusiasm for new technologies
  • Don’t be embarrassed to discuss your test procedure or result with the customer and agree on necessary measures, both in German and English

Our offer makes your heart beat faster

  • Look forward to a permanent job in a cross-sector technology consultancy where you can make a lot of things happen. For you, this means: the best prospects right from the start!
  • Very good remuneration and a comprehensive package of attractive company benefits – because we appreciate your daily commitment.
  • Flexible working hours, home office and flexitime – so that you can pursue your job without worries.
  • An open and friendly corporate culture with flat hierarchies and short lines of communication – because this is the only way your ideas can be implemented quickly.
  • Promotion of your personal and professional development through our in-house “Technology and People Academy”, individual coaching as well as customised expert tracks and certifications (e.g. Scrum) – because you can further your education with us in a targeted manner.
  • Internal roles possible (e.g. coaching, recruiting) – if you also want to get involved outside your projects
  • Numerous additional benefits, such as our company events (e.g. skiing, project training camp, get-together) as well as free drinks and more – so that we grow even stronger together as a team.
