Why work at RiskIQ?

  • Fascinating work - Welcome to the underbelly of the Internet. We detect and expose malware, viruses, exploit kits, botnets, affiliate fraud, advertising fraud, and illicit mobile apps, among other things. It is the golden age of internet crime, and we are at the forefront of defensive efforts to stem the tide.  Internet security is a global growth industry, and the domain knowledge you acquire here will be a marketable skill for decades to come.
  • We are a company on the uptick  - We have a proven business model: we were profitable after our first year of business, and we continue to grow our profits year over year. Our client list reads like the Hollywood A-list of tech and financial Fortune 500 companies.
  • Talent begets talent - Our founders are the reason people join us. Our CEO is a respected industry expert whose domain knowledge is unbelievably vast, and our CTO exudes knowledge, skill, and a tremendous work ethic. Both sweat knowledge from their pores, and it's all yours if you're able to soak it up.
  • Unbounded opportunity - We are small and we are growing. You will be provided with as much responsibility as you can handle -  new career development opportunities constantly pop up given our growth rate. Want to design a new data center from the ground up?  Or architect a big data back-end to double our storage and increase our analysis capabilities to triple figure terabytes? These challenges are yours for the taking if you prove you're capable.
  • Flexibility - You will have a large workload, but also the freedom to accomplish it on your own terms.
