The Test Delivery team supports the exam creation and presentation functions that are essential components of Pearson Vue’s core business. One of the team’s primary responsibilities is supporting a number of examination platforms that present exams to candidates, record responses, calculate scores and report results. We are now in the midst of building our next generation web based exam software, which is a multi-year project with enormous strategic value, leveraging state of the art technologies and process, which has strong organizational interest and momentum. We are looking for outstanding candidates to bolster the staff of this critical product.

The Security Software Developer is being hired to fortify the security of our web-based Test Delivery applications. Alongside other members of the feature development teams, this development role will plan and implement fixes to security vulnerabilities uncovered by penetration tests and scanning tools. Familiarity with common security vulnerabilities and fixes is important, but so is learning on-the-job.

This role is new and will be the Test Delivery team’s specialist on security and security related initiatives. To be successful, partnership with the rest of the development team, QA team, architects, and security analysts in the broader company will be part of the job. Candidates for this role are not expected to be security experts, but should start with a baseline of security knowledge and be driven to expand their skills through collaboration with other team members and industry documentation. Pearson is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer and a member of E-Verify. All qualified applicants, including minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
