What we look for in team members: We are all life-long learners and value people who share that curiosity. As a startup, we have to be nimble (translation – we don’t always know all the answers), so dealing with ambiguity and uncertainty is essential. We look for people who are brave when it comes to trying new things, and we look to everyone on the team to contribute and speak up. And finally, we like to have fun. While we take our work seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We’re looking for teammates who can join us for a laugh!

You will learn about the security industry while working with security experts. You will work closely with other engineers to design new software services and features.
