Senior Penetration Tester

For the Agile threat, protection & response chapter within the Cybersecurity unit, we are looking for experienced penetration testers to strengthen our team. We are looking for someone who knows all the "ins and outs" of pen testing. You work in different projects to help our clients to take next steps when it comes to pen testing. You take responsibility for your own work, but you think it is just as important that we as the Capgemini team deliver a fantastic performance!

Your job in one paragraph

To properly protect information, organizations need to know what risks exist for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data. In your role, you support our clients in identifying vulnerabilities and associated risks to the security of networks, systems and data. In addition, you have a coaching role in guiding junior/medior colleagues and you like to keep expanding and improving our services.

As Senior Penetration Tester at Capgemini you help organizations to gain insight in their vulnerabilities and risks. With the help of your knowledge you identify vulnerabilities and make clear how they can be abused and what the associated risks are. You advise on how information can be better secured and what organizational or technical measures are required to do so. You work for leading clients and are able to clearly explain IT security challenges to your clients.

As Senior Penetration Tester you advise, alone or in a team, leading organizations about the strategic, organizational, operational and human side of IT security. Projects in which you participate can be in the area of:

  • The execution of various IT-security investigations including penetration tests, phishing simulations and Red Teaming;
  • Creating security awareness with our customers, for example through awareness sessions and hacking demos;
  • Performing (partly) automated vulnerability scans;
  • advising on all aspects of IT security, both technical and non-technical.

Your home base at Capgemini

International career opportunities and great expertise networking. With more than 270,000 colleagues worldwide and more than 7,000 colleagues in the Netherlands alone, you are surrounded by a broad, technically intensive community of motivated colleagues. Innovative, complex and challenging projects for well-known, often multinational clients, supported by world leading partners and the certainty of a permanent contract with a successful international consultancy.


In addition to a dynamic working environment, nice colleagues and delicious coffee, you have complete freedom within Capgemini to develop further thanks to our all-you-can-train concept! Due to this concept, various training courses and courses can be followed, from a CISSP training to training courses on Scrum, you name it! So tell us your ambitions, and we'll be happy to help you achieve them.

  • You will immediately receive a permanent contract;
  • All You Can Train without any obligations;
  • A well-filled suitcase with holiday money and enough time (26 days) to spend it;
  • A non-contributory pension, so that you can still remember Capgemini fondly after retirement;
  • Work wherever you want on a device of your choice with our connectivity allowance;
  • Your first necessity of life as a professional: a fast laptop and a SIM card that you can also use privately;
  • Always on the road with your lease car or NS business card. Or opt for payment of your travel allowance;
  • And of course a suitable salary. We would be happy to discuss this with you.

Get the future you want. That is our promise to you and that starts on day one. With good onboarding and structured and transparent growth paths. But also: plenty of opportunities to deviate from this, to pioneer yourself and to choose your own path.

You can count on trust and collegial support from our side. Working at Capgemini also means working at the international heart of innovation. The premier league of technology.
