At Wells Fargo, we are looking for talented people who will put our customers at the center of everything we do. We are seeking candidates who embrace diversity, equity and inclusion in a workplace where everyone feels valued and inspired.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Technology sets IT strategy; enhances the design, development, and operations of our systems; optimizes the Wells Fargo infrastructure; provides information security; and enables Wells Fargo global customers to have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week banking access through in-branch, online, ATMs, and other channels.

Our mission is to deliver stable, secure, scalable, and innovative services at speeds that delight and satisfy our customers and unleash the skills potential of our employees.

Our Enterprise Information Security team is looking for a strong cyber security professional to join our Offensive Security Research Team.

The Validation Testing Team formed in 2017, and was given the mission of validating the remediation efforts of the company to address Offensive Security Research Team (OSRT) findings. The tester uses the information in the original report to duplicate environment and circumstances that led to the original finding. They then evaluate the results of their efforts and produce a Validation Report. The testers must be able to understand and interpret the original test plan and narrative and must further be able to document, explain, and present their validation test results. This requires a deep understanding of both a broad range of application security issues but also across an extremely broad range of technologies, stacks and attack/defense strategies, deep experience in red teaming, exploit development, and kill chains. This position will also provide peer feedback on validation tests conducted by other members of the team, checking them for technical continuity and completeness. The role requires strong interpersonal communication skills alongside deep technical knowledge, which can translate to a wide variety of audiences.
