You will also assess security risks of 3rdrdparty vendors by performing penetration testing on applications hosted within ServiceNow, as well as in the vendor’s infrastructure. A key part of this position is to effectively report issues to the application owners, provide meaningful remediation recommendations, and validate that they have been resolved.


In order to be successful in this role, we need someone who has:

  • Strong foundations in software engineering (Java preferred).
  • Prior experience in testing web applications and web services.
  • In-depth knowledge of common web application vulnerabilities (i.e. OWASP Top 10).
  • Familiarity with automated dynamic scanners and proxy tools.
  • An analytical mind for problem solving, abstract thought, and offensive security tactics.
  • Ability to articulate complex issues to executives and customers.
  • Security certifications a plus!
