Reasons to work with us
Fluid Attacks is a great place to work. This is due to:
Hackers that develop their own tools
When we have projects we hack applications or corporate networks. When we do not have projects, we develop our own software tools. This is why we are looking for hackers that are passionate about programming. Our favorite technologies are Linux, Git, Python, Docker, Ansible, and Amazon Web Services. It does not matter if you have not yet mastered these tools. With Fluid Attacks, what matters is your capacity to self-teach and learn new skills to address challenges we face on a daily basis, the discipline with which you face challenges, the honesty to say what needs to be said, and the ability to listen and communicate in a manner that fosters respectful and equal collaboration with other team members.
Do you want to take part in the most challenging selection process there is? A selection process where no matter the result, you will learn more than with any other company? If so, then we invite you to participate and see for yourself that with Fluid Attacks, it is better to do, then to know. Our selection process is guided using Git, provides feedback through continuous integration and allows you to improve your world-ranking in programming and hacking, as well as your GitLab profile. You don’t need to have graduated, don’t need to be enrolled in a college or university, nor have any specific work experience. The only thing that matters, is that you show us you can learn, on your own, at an expected rate.
Short projects and high rotations
70% of the company’s projects are small (less than 1 month) and medium (1 to 6 months). This allows you to constantly become familiar with new organizations, different problems, different methods, and to broaden your knowledge.
Continuous improvement based on International Standards
Fluid Attacks was the first company in Colombia to obtain an ISO/IEC 27001 (Information Security) certification at the same time we obtained the ISO 9001 certificate. Also, our continuous improvement process uses the ISO/IEC 17025 and Common Criteria standards as a reference for all security tests.
Work with the great ones
Fluid Attacks provides information security services to some of the biggest organizations in Colombia. This means that there will always be challenging projects in which you can participate. Bancolombia, Colpatria, Davivienda, — the biggest banks in the country; UNE, ETB, EDATEL, Claro, — the biggest ISP in the country; and many more.
Great talent working together
Our most valuable asset is our people and we are proud of our amazing team. In fact, it is a very young team with an average age of 25. We believe our talented team makes Fluid Attacks a competitive place to work and, at the same time, a great place to learn and develop your skills. The first three Debian developers in Colombia work with Fluid Attacks. Compared to other companies, Fluid Attacks has the highest percentage of employees certified in CEH and OSCP The majority of the team members of the Latin American Security Wargames Championship work with us. Additionally, our employees have important certifications such as CEH, OSCP, CISA, CISM, GISP, CISSP CompTIA Security+ and ITIL.
