What are we looking for?

We are currently seeking a teammate who is skilled at end user support and willing to learn security fundamentals.

What will you NOT do?

  • You will NOT worry about "runway", "cash left", or "how much time we have until the next round". We're fully backed and funded, all the way to success.
  • You will NOT be confined to engineering and coding. Have a thought or idea about how we do our product, marketing, business development, operation or customer support? Speak up! Get involved, initiate, own.
  • You will NOT chase the latest most sophisticated technology just because it's there. We love sexy technology but we love practical solutions that get the job done even more.
  • You will NOT get yourself burned out. We work hard but we believe in maintaining sustainable work/life balance. Really.
