We seek a security engineer to spearhead low-level software security initiatives across our current and future PlayStation consoles. You will join an elite team focused on software and hardware security, design and code reviews, penetration testing and system hardening efforts.

Here, you will have opportunities to steer and improve the security throughout the PlayStation platform. The team is involved throughout product development, from early design to production and future updates. From silicon design, to secure boot, to a custom operating system and applications, you will tackle challenging technical security problems at all areas of the console. We are looking for candidates who are excited about diving into a complex system, figuring out all the possible weak points, and designing ways to mitigate or eliminate these risks.

This team sits between security research, design, and development. You will have opportunities to develop security tools, research new ideas, design security systems, as well as find software & hardware vulnerabilities in design and implementation. Finally, you must be able to clearly present your results and findings to development teams or as an executive summary.
