NCC Group is currently looking for experienced security minds to join our merry crew! Take your skillset to the next level, perform cutting edge security research, and contribute on interesting client engagements. The elusive triple threat.
What do we do exactly? Penetration testing, security analysis, DFIR, and cutting-edge research into current technologies and attacks (breaking things). You spend most of your day thinking about security systems and how they can break. You get to be creative and have a lot of freedom to be clever while learning new technologies at a very fast pace. Engagements are usually 2-4 weeks long and in a year you will be exposed to 15-20 products and technology stacks. Your work will typically initiate person-months of security improvements in products millions of people use. You will have access to senior engineers/architects and your findings/ideas will be heard by senior decision makers. You will have enormous impact in making the software people use safer.
All of our consultants are also security researchers, with dedicated research time. Not too shabby!

ThoughtWorks

ThoughtWorks | Lead Mobile Engineers | New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Atlanta | Full Time | On Site & Travel | VISA transfer OK | www.thoughtworks.com/
APPLY:
Chicago: https://www.thoughtworks.com/jobs/208775
ABOUT THOUGHTWORKS:
As software delivery consultants, we work with a variety of clients that hire us to solve complex and interesting problems. Each client we work with gives us a new perspective and a broad exposure to different technologies, which leads to a pretty unlimited learning environment. If you have a passion for exploring new technologies, chances are you’ll fit right in.
Our Lead Mobile Engineers partner with our clients to define their mobile strategy and are hands-on in building applications that can scale an enterprise system. We create enterprise mobile applications that are clean, well-tested, scalable and deployed in a CI/CD pipeline.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
Ideal candidates have been working in the mobile space for a few years, have led a few mobile teams, can lead mobile strategy, and care about best practices like testing and continuous delivery. We are particularly interested in engineers with native iOS experience, especially Swift.
We have a strong preference for candidates with previous full stack development experience, as the nature of consulting means working on projects with a huge variety in scale, scope and technology. However, we are open to considering candidates without previous full stack experience if there is a strong desire to learn from our full stack developers, DevOps engineers, etc.
We work almost exclusively on client site providing a mix of delivery and consulting services, so you’ll travel extensively as part of your role.

Top 5 Books for Language-Specific Interview Questions

Shrunk and White of Programming When you put down that you know a certain programming language or languages on your resume, you are setting certain expectations for the interviewer. I would strongly caution against putting down "expert" in a language unless you invented or are one of the language's maintainers. You are giving your interviewer the license to quiz you on programming language lore. There are a handful of concepts that are considered "standard" knowledge for each language which go broadly beyond syntax and general semantics. These concepts commonly involve major pitfalls in a given language and the idiomatic technique for negotiating these pitfalls and writing efficient and maintainable code. Note, although the concepts are considered idiomatic, you can seldom infer them from knowledge of syntax and semantics alone. The tricky part here is that most courses that teach a particular programming language do not cover these idiomatic techniques and eve…

Complexity Analysis for Interviews, Part 1

This is part 1 of a two part series. Skip over to part 2 you'd like . For coding interviews, we are interested in gauging the asymptotic efficiency of algorithms both in terms of running time and space. The formal study of analysis of algorithms is called complexity theory, a rich field with fascinating and complicated math. For interviews, we only need a few basic concepts. Asymptotic efficiency is concerned with how the running time or memory requirements of an algorithm grows with the input size, so it is intimately concerned with how well algorithms scale to larger inputs. This is important in Computer Science and in practice because whereas some algorithms work well enough for small inputs of say < 10 inputs, the running time and space grows far faster than the input size and thus large inputs of say 10s to millions of inputs becomes impractical (usually meaning taking hours or even years of execution time). Consider sorting. Say for the sake of argument that sorting alg…

Interview Gotchas

It's a challenge to outperform all the other candidates in a competitive tech job only, but there is hope. You can improve your performance with practice and watching out for these gotchas: Make absolutely sure you are solving the right problem: I ran into this the other day. It is entirely a communication issue. When doing an initial screen over the phone, this problem is compounded. For example, maybe an interviewee is hacking out a function that returns the k highest priced products when the interviewer is expecting the kth highest priced product. One can squander a lot of time due to these misunderstandings. A good interviewer will try to guide you back to the right path, but you can't expect this. Be sure to ask questions. Confirm that the input and output are exactly what you expect. Use examples.Don't ever give an interviewer the impression that you are avoiding writing real code. This is an impression thing. This is a coding interview so you should be expecting to…
