Do you want to change the world? We do, too.
SunPower is changing the way our world is powered every day with a passionate and driven team of more than 3,660 full-time employees in North America and the Philippines. SunPower provides world-class solar solutions to residential customers across the U.S. with a commitment to a superior customer experience. We welcome forward thinkers, freedom chasers and all those demanding better, cleaner energy to join us.
Summary of Role:
You will work with a leadership team that deeply understands the value of penetration testing and also understands how it is an art as well as a science. We also understand the importance of a high-focus, low-distraction, low-bureaucracy environment for penetration testing. If you like mentoring others, there will be ample opportunity to do so. But if you want to purely focus on questioning the security assumptions of our systems, that focus is welcome here.
SunPower nurtures strong security culture and focuses on scaling our security program as our organization grows rapidly. We invest in our teams with particular attention to high standards, career growth for our team members, maintaining an inclusive environment, and building a diverse team. Finally, you will have our support to maintain a healthy balance between your work and your personal life.
Why SunPower? Whether you like interesting security, technology, renewable energy, or working with smart, fun people, we have you covered. We have one of the largest AWS IoT (Internet of Things) deployments and we’re building with cutting edge cloud products such as AWS Lambda. We are creating innovative renewable energy solutions such as virtual power plants and bi-directional electric vehicle charging for whole-home backup power. As a security team, we pride ourselves on being very engaged with other SunPower builders, while holding high standards. Because that’s just more fun.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities:
- Attack SunPower applications, networks, and products as an adversary would, identify issues, and share those with SunPower engineering teams. Deploy techniques as varied as manual testing, source code review, running security testing tools, and social engineering.
- Work with your management team and SunPower engineering leaders to prioritize security testing targets and create security test plans for target systems.
- Build and deploy security testing automation and offensive security tools.
- Communicate security findings to SunPower engineering teams and SunPower’s leadership team.
- Use your knowledge and expertise to guide SunPower’s security strategy and advise our leadership team. This strategy covers all aspects of information security: design-time security assessments, security policies, security metrics, security automation, and training.
- Keep abreast of the latest attack techniques, threats, and security research.
- MS in computer science, information security, information science, a related field, or equivalent work experience
- 4 or more years of penetration testing, red team, offensive security, or ethical hacking experience.
- 2 or more years of experience with security test planning.
- 4 or more years of experience with security engineering or security protocols.
We have a preference for candidates who are within driving distance of our technology offices in Austin, TX; Bellevue, WA; and Richmond, CA. or are willing to relocate. Exception to this preference will be considered for candidates who meet specific requirements. We are a hybrid team who values periodic in-person collaboration when it is safe to do so.
Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and underrepresented minorities are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At SunPower, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
