Security & Web Development Internship Opportunities

FortyNorth Security is excited to add two interns to the team!

We will be accepting applications until January 21, 2022.

We are looking for a security intern and a web development intern that will help in exciting new projects. If you are interested, please, thoroughly read the job description below and contact us at [email protected]

Web Development Intern (Remote)

FortyNorth Security is a boutique information security consulting company specializing in offensive security work.

Over the next four months, we plan to:

  1. Launch a new product related to cybersecurity.
  2. Build an internal tool to streamline our penetration testing processes.
  3. Make updates to our website and blog.

The web development intern will work with our web application lead to build both the front-end and back-end of a new web portal as well as connect it to our new product.

After completing that project, the intern will work with our web application lead to develop a second project that will provide the intern with significantly more creative room. Together, they will first develop the project requirements, design the architecture, create a front-end design and then code the entire project.

Finally, if time remains, the intern will work with the web application lead to make updates to the corporate website and blog.

Who We're Looking For:

  • Current College Senior or Graduate Student
  • US Citizen and US-Based (any time zone)
  • Available part-time (up to 25 hours per week)
  • Experience Building Web Applications (prior work experience building web apps would be ideal, but substantial school projects would be fine too)
  • Comfortable Developing in Python and JavaScript
  • Match for our culture (we offer a remote-first, casual work environment that relies on all staff to complete their projects on-time without micromanagement.)

What You'll Get:

  • Real ownership over portions of a new cybersecurity product being launched by FortyNorth Security.
  • Real ownership over portions of an internal reporting tool.
  • Experience reviewing an existing codebase and making usability updates to a corporate website and blog.
  • A say in the design, architecture and logic of our all projects.
    -Mentorship from industry leading professionals
  • Compensation: $20/hour
  • A stellar recommendation (assuming all job duties were successfully completed)

*Note: This internship is not intended to lead to a full-time employment offer.

Security Intern (Remote)

FortyNorth Security is a boutique information security consulting company specializing in offensive security work.

FortyNorth Security is interested in finding an intern to work with our offensive security practitioners for a role largely focused on tool development, security assessments, and potentially training. FortyNorth Security regularly performs a wide range of security assessments ranging from web application assessments, penetration tests, and red team work. While performing these tests, our team commonly finds gaps in existing public, and internal, toolkits and identifies potential new tooling that would allow us to better, and more efficiently, perform our assessments. Identifying these gaps allows our team to build out a "wish list" of tool ideas for our team to create. Additionally, FortyNorth Security employees commonly give training at our own public training events, industry conferences (such as BlackHat and NorthSec), and private events.

Many of the skills required for this role can be taught, however, already possessing some of the skills listed below will help accelerate your ability to succeed in this role. We're looking for someone who will work well with our team and is passionate about the work.

What will you be doing?

  • Help build tools, utilities, scripts, etc. that will help our offensive security team
  • Assist in offensive security assessments with the FortyNorth Security team
  • Help build out and/or update assessment methodologies
  • Review, update, and create findings that are included in FortyNorth Security reports
  • Interact with FortyNorth Security clients


  • Passion for offensive security
  • Development experience
  • Soft skills
    - Team oriented and match for our culture
    - Ability to interact with customers
    - Strong writing skills
  • Ability to pass a background check
  • Authorized to work in the United States

Extras we would love:

  • Experience with Cobalt Strike (or other C2 frameworks)
  • Experience performing offensive security assessments
  • Knowledge about Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems
  • Networking and system administration knowledge
  • Interest in giving and developing offensive security trainings

Compensation: $20/hour
Available part-time (up to 25 hours per week)
