Our Process

After an initial conversation, select candidates will be offered to select from and work on one of several “interview projects.” We do not follow the “old school” trend of technical grilling sessions in front of a white board; instead we ask candidates to spend a small amount of time (at your pace) working on a project in areas similar to our work so you can get a sense of the type of work you will be doing, and we can get a sense for your craftsmanship.

Contact Us!

If you are intrigued about what we are working on, and think we would have a great time working together then please contact us. We’d love to hear about your experience and how we can work together to help change the security industry.
