Careers at Capsule8​

Revolutionizing Security for the Modern Age
Yes, Really

In 1991, a Finnish computer science student named Linus Torvalds decided to create a free operating system in his spare time. Few people paid attention. Fast forward three decades and somehow, when no one was looking, Linux devoured the entire server market.

Well, some people noticed. We did.

We also noticed that securing Linux across cloud and data center environments takes a different kind of approach. Retrofitting traditional Windows and endpoint security products don’t do the job. And that is especially true in modern environments with containers and microservices and such. But as both Linux and security experts, we decided we were up for the challenge.

Are you?

We’re solving big problems (data center-sized problems) with a mission in mind – keep Linux hosts safe however and wherever they’re deployed, making both Security & Ops teams happy.

In order to do that, it’s just as important to keep our Capsule8 team happy. The best ideas and the best work comes from people who believe in the work that they do and we want to be the place that makes that happen. If that sounds like you, we want you to be part of our team.

Life at Capsule8

There are a lot of puns. A lot. (Some Dad jokes too, the father along you go.)

There is also a leadership team hailing from companies such as Apple, Google, Square, McAfee, FireEye and RSA who are here to not only grow this company but help you learn and grow in your career.

There are former Black Hats (sshhhh) who are working on cool research and looking for curious hacker minds who like to break stuff and solve problems (you also get the opportunity to write/speak about how you did it).

We have Lunch and Learns, team offsites, game nights, volunteer days, and an inordinate amount of Diet Dr. Pepper in the fridge.
