Cybersecurity trainee program

Cybersecurity trainee program

We are looking to expand our Security engineering team at City Network with young talent. We are mainly looking for young and curious minds that want to learn more about cybersecurity.

The trainee program runs for 6 months and counts as probationary employment. The program includes intense and targeted training and education in the professional implementation of cybersecurity. After the program, we expect you to be fully qualified to apply for our Junior Security engineering roles at City.

As a Cybersecurity trainee, you will report directly to the CISO and participate in team activities with the rest of our compliance team.

What will you learn

  • We will introduce you to the practical reality of operating and providing cloud services based on the absolute latest Open Source technologies. This while maintaining the strictest of Cybersecurity requirements.
  • We will teach you security automation and how to operate automation tools such as Ansible, Terraform, Zuul, Gerrit, and AWX.
  • We will teach you how to perform professional Vulnerability management at an industrial scale.
  • We will teach you how to scope and analyze incoming vulnerabilities and prioritize based on the context of our infrastructure.
  • We will train you in writing automated tests and perform operations through code.
  • We will train you in Linux security hardening.
  • We will train you in performing disruption-free vulnerability patching.
  • We will train you in writing Python scripts for automated Linux administration.
  • We will train you in communication and feedback.
  • We will train you in team dynamics and work towards becoming a high-performing team.

What you need to bring from start

As a trainee, we will, of course, train and educate you. However, there are a few things we need you to have in terms of past experience:

  • You need to be experienced in Linux administration. All of our relevant infrastructures are Linux-based.
  • You need to be experienced in reading and writing code. You will work mostly in Python, but it is ok if you have prior experience in any programming language.

We have no requirements that you have any formal education. We are fine if you meet our needs through past work experience or formal education, or even home experimentation.

Apart from the required experience, we have the following expectations on your individual skills:

  • You need to have an open and curious mind. You will continuously learn new things. We expect you to embrace continuous improvement of yourself the same way you will contribute to the continuous improvement of our services and security.
  • You need to be genuinely interested in cybersecurity. We will teach you the relevant parts, but we expect you to have a genuine interest in the subject.
  • You need to be willing to improve your communication skills. We have an extensive team culture program, and we will require you to become an excellent communicator. We will train you, but you need to be prepared to put in the effort.
  • You need to be fluent in writing and speaking English. All our documentation is in English.
