Pentesting career from software engineering

Hi everyone,

I have been a software engineer for a little over five years at a well-known medical device company developing automated test scripts and conducting debugging/log analysis. Recently, I’ve wanted to get into information security due to the enormous demand for experienced professionals, and in particular penetration testing. I was wondering, if I were to intensively study and gain the OSCP and CompTIA Security+ certifications, would these along with my experience as a software test engineer be enough to make my way into the penetration testing job field in the USA?
