< See All Positions

Your mission (if you accept it): be our technical security expert!

It's time to join a great team and put your passion to work! Come join our offensive security team and take on the challenge of finding security holes in our systems. What we mean by that is: we are looking for someone who is passionate about security and wants to make sure nothing can disrupt our corporate and cloud environments. 

We're looking for an intern to help us on a daily basis; whether it's performing penetration tests, improving the code of our internal tools or contributing to internal awareness events - the challenges are many. 

Are you someone who is always up to date with the latest hacking techniques and security best practices? Look no further, we have the perfect opportunity for you! 


So what’s a typical day like ?

  • You start your day by attending your weekly SCRUM meeting. You get visibility into all of the security department's projects and the progress of team priorities. As a team member, you get to see how your work contributes to everyone's goals!
  • Following that, you log into a zoom meeting with your internship mentor to assist a safety champion who has scored a critical case on one of your new initiatives. You take a few moments with her to explain how to proceed.
  • It's already lunch time! You take some well-deserved time off to compete with your colleagues in an exciting game of Smash Bros Ultimate in the office cafeteria.
  • After lunch, you continue your pentest of the latest Coveo feature. One aspect of it had caught your attention, and you want to make sure with the developers that the implementation is secure. 
  • Then, you join a colleague on Zoom to give your opinion on the latest vulnerability identified in the Bug Bounty program; you share your knowledge from the last CTF you attended. 
  • You end your day by meeting with your internship coach to discuss the good and bad things you did during the week. This is also the perfect opportunity to ask your questions!


Are you our next intern superstar ?
We want to hear from you if :

  • You are autonomous and flexible. At Coveo, an intern frequently works on several projects in parallel!
  • You are ready to take the initiative and work independently - seize the freedom we offer you and run with it!
  • You have a strong interest in safety
  • You are fluent in English; you will need to interact with many colleagues outside of Quebec 
  • You like to collaborate with many people; you will be a reference in security matters for many teams after all!
  • You have already done one or more projects in Python

Additional qualities that will catch our attention

  • You have already participated in various CTFs or you have relevant experience in vulnerability research; challenges are not foreign to you!
  • You have an interest in or knowledge of vulnerability scanning and web proxy tools (Burp suite), web reconnaissance (dirbuster, ffuf), password cracking (hydra, john, hashcat) and exploitation tools (metasploit, sql map)
  • You're not afraid to ask the right questions to get a thorough understanding of your tasks; knowing that you don't know everything is very important to success.
