Job Description

At Synopsys, we’re at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we’re powering it all with the world’s most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.

Our Software Security and Quality business is all about building secure software—faster. That starts with our static analysis, software composition analysis, and dynamic analysis. So our customers can build security and quality into the DNA of their code at any stage of the software development lifecycle and across the supply chain. All while minimizing risks and maximizing speed of application development.

Senior Consultant

As Synopsys engages with clients in the application of our software security improvement methodologies, the Senior Security Consultant joins in the execution and delivery of planned project deliverables and milestones that assist clients in learning, understanding, and applying Synopsys's secure software development methodologies.

The Senior Security Consultant should have an entrepreneurial drive and take opportunities to learn the skills required to pursue client management at Synopsys. Where possible, the Senior Security Consultant should participate in scoping calls, statement of work creation, project planning and management, staff management, project-level financial analysis/management, sales collaboration, strategic account planning, identification of new opportunities with clients, staff mentorship, etc.

The Senior Security Consultant typically leads security engagements with a small team and advises clients on solving complex problems in the software security world. The Senior Security Consultant continuously learns, expands, and shares his/her technical competence. Senior Security Consultants do some work from the office, but often go on site to help customers exterminate the bugs and untangle the flaws that make their systems insecure. Our Senior Security Consultants and their team are trusted advisors to our clients: they build the relationships and deliver immaculate software security guidance and best practices.
