  • Experience in fuzzing. AFL++/LibAFL, Libfuzzer, Syzkaller, etc.
  • Good understanding of development processes focused on maintainability using CI and automated tools (Jenkins, GitHub actions, Sphinx, Read the Docs, etc).
  • Excellent programming skills in C/C++.

Experience or knowledge in at least 3 of the following:

  • Some understanding of OS and hypervisor internals (Linux, Windows, Xen, Hyper-V, ACRN, etc).
