What we do
MWR is an independent cyber security consultancy with research at the core of what we do. Solving our MEA clients’ unique cyber security challenges and ensuring they are more resilient to cyber-attacks is why we exist and continue to exist.
MWR is renowned for its technical excellence and client-centric approach to solving cyber security challenges. From partnering with some of Africa’s most renowned financial institutions, to advising large telecommunications and media corporations, our reputation of trust speaks for itself.
MWR has a dedicated commitment to research, with our technical consultants devoting time to conducting security research relevant to the industry and our clients. Whether the time is used to investigate new software, hardware, or protocols, we encourage our team to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
For example, by taking the time to break the latest smartphone, our consultants will have a deeper understanding of the device and therefore the methods a skilled attacker could use to find their way in. Along with the personal development this offers our people, the knowledge gained gives MWR the ability to secure our clients to the highest possible standard.
Subsequently, MWR has invested this passion for research into assembling an in house development team. This team allows us to develop products to provide defensive capabilities to our clients.
Developing these tools offer a multitude of challenges to software and testing engineers. We operate across both Windows and Unix environments, across multiple countries and have to handle reliability, performance and scalability across dozens of clients and thousands of endpoints.
We are a young company with big aspirations to solve difficult problems. We work hard and play hard and each member of the team is respected and heard. We love dreaming up crazy ideas...that just might work. And then they do :)
We need people that can work with a variety of technologies, including web and desktop. We highly prefer people that enjoy experimenting with new technologies; after all, perhaps Rust or Go fits the project requirements better.
"We don’t want to give our developers requirements; we want them to solve problems."
Our Engineering Processes
We are firm believers in automation. We operate a continuous integration and deployment environment with a strong focus on quality and speed. This philosophy allows us to automate and get rid of the mundane tasks and focus on development of interesting problems.
