Area 1 Security builds advanced technology that protect millions of people from malicious attacks on the World Wide Web. We analyze hundreds of millions of events each day to identify and stop targeted attacks against some of the largest organizations on the planet.

Our team is building a complete platform for running our global operations with a strong focus on Infrastructure-as-Code.

We are focused on building a rock-solid infrastructure that adapts quickly, enables our teams, and strengthens our underlying engineering focus.

We’re team first and building a well-rounded group that owns our solutions irrespective of tooling: what matters most is a passion for code and an enthusiasm for ops. We hire the best (you!) and rely on our strengths to carry us forward.
