Want to spend the summer developing your hacking skills, researching cutting edge security topics and being part of the day-to-day activities at one of the world’s leading cyber security specialists?
Interns will spend approximately a third of their internship following a training course to develop skills in areas such as application security, network security, incident investigation, malware analysis, reverse engineering and vulnerability discovery.
A further third will be spent performing novel research into one of the areas listed above, giving interns the chance to work side by side with MWR’s world renowned research team. Previous interns have produced research on everything from assessing NFC card security, to studying national cyber strategies around the world, to finding vulnerabilities in the Windows Kernel. Interns are encouraged to then present their research at conferences or in publications and some previous work can be seen on our labs site
The final portion of the internship will be spent with a mix of shadowing consultants on engagements (to understand how modern Cyber Security works in practicality).
You can also find out more about the culture at the company by looking at Hackfu. This is a 2 day, themed event where we and some friends come together at a mystery location (previous years have included a prison, a castle and a bunker) and solve a range of challenges in teams.
Who are we looking for?
Interns often come from a computing background, however we’ve had highly successful interns from a range of fields. Are you a psychologist who taught yourself a bit of python to speed up stats analysis and is excited about security? We definitely want to hear from you. The main things MWR people have in common are a need to understand how things work and a passion for security.
Internships are generally for those that are either in-between academic years or available for the summer only. If you are looking for a permanent position please apply for the Security Consultant vacancy.
Internships are paid, and are 12 weeks long over the summer period. The next two intakes will begin in June and July 2017 and will be based between our London and Basingstoke offices.
The closing date for applications is 25th November 2016
