Senior Software Engineer

Join a team of talented Software Engineers, Security Researchers and Data Scientists in building large-scale data analytic systems to stop phishing attacks before a victim is made aware.

We are a team first, and a company second. We are proud of the things we make, and we demand excellence in ourselves and each other. The problems we’re solving are hard; but we’ll only solve them if we greet each other in the morning, laugh together during the day, and say “good night” when we leave the office, so we do.

No text book will prepare you for this job. We only hire the best. That’s probably you.

Please inquire.
