GeoLogics is working onsite with a State of the Art team that covers the full life cycle of Vulnerability Research from reverse engineering and emulation, through vulnerability discovery, to production and effects generation. This team also covers a wide range of targets, anything from major consumer electronics to custom proprietary one/off systems. If it runs code, we have either already looked at it or will soon. This Reverse Engineer role utilizes both Penetration Testing and Offensive Security Methods.

Discovering Vulnerabilities in firmware, device drivers, or in proprietary embedded operating systems
Repurposing vulnerabilities for specific effects
Static and dynamic Analysis
Familiarity with at least one common low-level architecture (x86, ARM, etc) is important, as is the ability to conduct vulnerability research against applications compiled for that architecture.
