Hacking the Future: 12 Years at Exodus and the Next Big Leap

Hacking the Future: 12 Years at Exodus and the Next Big Leap

Tl;dr – We are hiring engineers, analysts, and researchers.

This May marked our 12th year of producing world-class vulnerability intelligence at Exodus Intelligence. We have had many ups (and downs) and have worked with a variety of talented people over the years whose collective contributions have made us who we are today. Throughout our history we have stayed true to our founding mission of maintaining a hacking culture, made by hackers, for hackers. We challenge and pride ourselves on researching some of the hardest targets, across a diversity of platforms and operating systems. As a team we have analyzed (I’m’, talking weeks long, thorough, root cause analysis) more than 1,600 Nday, and discovered over 400 0day in enterprise products. Whether software, hardware, server side, client side, IoT… our experts have done it all.

It has been a bit of a waiting game for the industry to build an appreciation for vulnerability intelligence, let alone Zeroday vulnerability intelligence. I would argue that the industry is finally there, and with the help of a lot of the big companies, there are products that can effectively detect and defend against this category of risks.

There is still a degree of “wild west” in the industry where it is hard to design and maintain standards for reporting, tracking and cataloging vulnerabilities (CVE, CVSS, CNAs, CPEs, SBOM,…). At Exodus we have always focused on the core research as our wheelhouse and put less effort on the website, front end, and engineering work that drives how people view, search and ingest our data. The market demands it now.

We are at an inflection point and aim to make our data more widely available and develop what tools we can to aggregate, enrich and curate all the public data, marry it with our own discoveries and analysis, and distribute to our customers. We have developed integrations for Splunk, Demisto (Cortex XSOAR), Slack, Recorded Future, to name a few examples, but the engineering lift is large, and the research support is insurmountable. Even as we jump on the GenAI band wagon with everyone else and invest in LLM, ML and AI, that technology is only as good as its input/data, so our researchers will need to spend the requisite time and effort training these models.

Now to the point of this post, we are hiring. We are looking for engineers with a special motivation to understand these challenges and have a passion to build solutions that chip away at the problems. We intend to make some of this tooling, code, and data available to the public, so the engineers we bring onboard should have an appreciation for open source code. While we’re always looking for elite researchers to join the team, these engineering efforts will soon unlock the need for an army of analysts that are interested in coverage of public data an inch deep, and a mile wide. We will have the incentives and mentorship in place to refine and develop skills towards hacking  more difficult targets and research, but for the first time we will be opening our doors to entry level analysts with the motivation to learn and gain unparalleled experience in the world of vulnerability research.

Current openings include:

  • Full-Stack Software Engineer
