Cofense provides end-to-end cyber-defense solutions that help protect organizations and their people from the vast and growing threat posed by phishing-related attacks. We're expanding rapidly and looking for talented engineers, like you, that care about building great products that solve big problems.
Our engineers work on products that make a difference in the world! From petty financial crimes up through major extortion & election hijacking events, many social engineering attacks start with phishing emails. We also build state of the art tools for IT and security operations centers, helping them identify & kill phishing attacks for large enterprises and organizations.
Cofense finds it important to support our employees during these uncertain times. That’s why our company provides virtual events such as wellness sessions, team and company-wide happy hours, and new-hire welcome lunches. We even recently hosted a virtual talent show. No matter where employees are working from, our organization’s culture fuels collaboration and fun.
