Task Force Talent is seeking a Penetration Tester with an active TS/SCI FSP security clearance. Target salary range is 100k - 210k, depending on experience level.
Our client for this role is a small company with very unique experience and expertise in cybersecurity and related areas. Candidates should have a background or experience in a technical area, excellent teamwork skills, and be willing to learn. Ideally, candidates also know something about networks, forensics, software engineering, or similar areas. This is uniquely rewarding, high-impact work that cannot be done elsewhere.
NOTE: If you do not have an active security clearance, please apply here instead:
Further details will be provided to qualified candidates after an initial interview.
All positions are full-time, in-office.
If you apply but this company is not a fit, we will consider you for other available positions as well. We have several clients seeking very similar skill sets.

Task Force Talent is a specialized recruiting firm for science, engineering, and security careers. Our clients include seed to Series B startups working on AI, cybersecurity, quantum computing, and other novel technologies. We also work with small to medium size government contractors, and we help leading venture capital firms find talent for their portfolio companies. We have hundreds of jobs available and consider all applicants for all roles, now and in the future. Our goal is to find the best fit for you!
Not a U.S. citizen? With rare exceptions (noted in the application), we recruit U.S. citizens and permanent residents only. Unfortunately, few of our clients have the ability to sponsor H1-B visas at this time. Please do not apply if you require a U.S. visa.
What format should I use for my resume? We strongly prefer plain-text resumes.
Do you provide resume editing services? We currently receive too many applications to provide detailed, individual resume feedback in most cases unless we believe you are a strong fit for a position.
Can you help with internships? At this time, we only have full-time roles.
Can coding boot camp grads apply? We have found that recent coding boot camp graduates without a separate technical degree are almost never competitive for the roles we have. We strongly recommend a few years of real-world work experience.
Recently graduated? Recent college graduates should include information on projects they have built to be competitive. We are happy to help recent or prospective graduates if we can; however, generally, we do not have entry-level positions and are unable to provide tailored resume feedback.
We match candidates based on the following criteria: interests, technical skills, location preferences (including remote/hybrid), salary preferences, and timeline (it's best to talk to us as early as possible!)
We will reformat your resume and develop an extensive, detailed candidate package before submitting you to any clients. Therefore we recommend submitting resumes in plain text format only. Please name your resume file something like:
Please do not submit a resume with the file name "resume" or resume.txt! It's likely to get clobbered by another file when someone is working on it.
Should we submit you as a candidate to any clients, we will provide detailed coaching and feedback throughout the process.
