  • Understand how to use Ghidra, GDB, WinDbg and other popular reverse engineering tools. 
  • Technical understanding of different binary bug classes and how to locate them.
  • Technical understanding of how to read source code to locate bugs and go onto produce full POCs.
  • Ability to debug technical issues related to cyber security to help other teams in creating content
  • Understanding of modern binary exploitation techniques and mitigations

An Insider's view of Immersive Labs

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The unique thing about being in our office is that we are a tightknit team working in a collaborative space. It has that true start-up feeling. We've all grown so close in such a short amount of time. At the end of the day, you can feel that everyone is truly invested in working towards the ultimate goal. Growing our company!

Jasmine

Strategic Account Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I'm lucky because I get to work with all the teams here at Immersive Labs. Sales, finance, legal, talent, marketing, you name it. I'm currently working with the talent team who sits in the UK, to build out our US headquarters. The goal is to ensure we are hiring really smart individuals in Boston with our core values.

Morgan

Executive Assistant

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

IL has given me the opportunity to work on projects with varying specialties. This has given me skills in every aspect of Cyber Security. The most exciting is analyzing malware and exploits - all day, everyday! IL keeps me completely up to date in the industry & encourages me to explore all avenues.

Ben

Senior Content Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Being accessible is even more important in these unusual times. So how do you create an "open-door policy" while being remote? I changed one aspect of my team interaction. I transferred ownership of my 1x1s to the individuals - which means, they control the meeting agenda, content, and tone. Also, I always end with "What can I do for you?"

Stuti

VP, Customer Success

How does the company support your career growth?

Immersive Labs has been a major step forward in my career. Joining a rapidly growing startup like Immersive offers more opportunity than an established company. I've already had the chance to take a leadership position as we expand into the US market and at no point have I felt discouraged in sharing my opinions even to our CEO.

Strategic Account Manager
