  • Hands-on experience with security testing tools such as Burp Suite, OWASP ZAP, or Nessus.
  • Proficiency in programming languages such as Ruby, Python, or JavaScript.
  • Experience with cloud security principles and best practices (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP).
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to effectively communicate security risks and recommendations to technical and non-technical stakeholders.
