Project Manager

Join our Engineering Services team!
Our engineering services team works closely with our clients in tech, defense, and finance on ground-up development, quick-response feature development, bug fixes, and integration of the security tools they depend on. We help fill the gap for internal security teams who need custom tooling for secure enclaves, endpoint detection and response, secure software updates, and security testing.
We use the best of open-source software for our work, and regularly contribute enhancements to these projects as a result. We help clients bring open source tools they rely on – like osquerySantaOmaha, and StreamAlert – to parity with the leading proprietary alternatives.
Our engineering practice is where innovative security research meets practical tools offering real value for industry-leading companies. Whenever possible, we get our research out of the lab and into client environments. We do this by scaling our testing tools developed by our government research practice to create cutting-edge application security tooling for the commercial sector.
