Mobile OS Reverse Engineer

The Challenge:

We’re looking for a root seeking, jailbreaking, app moding, mobile OS and application reverse engineer. You know breaking code is more fun than writing it. After all, no matter how many hours of code review a team completes, you can still find the errors in a program – and use them. In this role, you’ll get to do just that – find the flaws and uncover the privilege escalation, leaked data, unencrypted logs, and the “you-weren’t-supposed-to-find-that” way in. The best part of this job is you’ll be fighting crime – assisting law enforcement agencies around the nation.

As a Booz Allen security researcher, you’ll reverse engineer compiled code across multiple mobile operating systems and platforms. Sure, there will be coding involved, but it doesn’t have to be pretty. Find a vulnerability in an application, write some quick prototype code to exploit it, and show how easily you can own that device. If your motto is “when a patch closes a door, it opens a window,” this is where you want to work.
