Centrify – Why Work For Us?


Centrify Corporate Overview

Centrify is the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyberthreats that target today’s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile and on-premises.  The Centrify Identity Platform protects against the leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised credentials — by securing an enterprise’s internal and external users as well as its privileged accounts.  Centrify delivers stronger security, continuous compliance and enhanced user productivity through single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, mobile and Mac management, privileged access security and session monitoring. Centrify is trusted by over 5000 customers, including more than half of the Fortune 50, and have been named numerous times as one of the hottest companies in security.

Founded in 2004 by Tom Kemp, Adam Au and Paul Moore, Centrify is headquartered in Santa Clara, California, with additional development and regional offices in Seattle, Hong Kong, London, Munich, Brisbane and Sao Paulo. Centrify is a privately held company backed by top-tier venture capital firms Mayfield, Accel Partners, INVESCO Private Capital, Sigma West, Samsung, Index Ventures, Fortinet and Docomo Capital. These investors have funded some of the world's most successful technology companies, including Citrix, Facebook, Veritas, JBoss, MySQL, Riverbed and Skype. Our partners include Microsoft, Samsung, Apple, Red Hat, Canonical and others. 

Since releasing its initial product in 2005, Centrify has expanded its portfolio from one product to a suite of software and cloud services that span your data center, cloud and mobile environment with comprehensive support for over 450 systems and 2,000+ applications. Benefits of the Centrify offering include:

  • Centrify Your Users. Gives users the single login users want.
  • Centrify Your Security. Apply the same identity policies across data center, cloud and mobile.
  • Centrify Your IT. Leverage Active Directory to centrally manage data center, cloud and mobile.

As organizations increasingly supplement and replace their on-premise IT infrastructure with cloud and mobile platforms, Centrify believes efficiently and securely managing user's digital identities in this hybrid IT environment becomes even more important. Our vision of delivering unified identity services that centrally manage identities across data center, cloud and mobile is integral to every product and solution we develop. We believe the end result of one single login for users and one unified architecture for IT is a compelling value proposition for you and your organization.

    I have been working at Centrify full-time (More than 3 years)


    Centrify is growing 40% year-over-year. They keep improving on their core software: identity and priv. management across cloud and datacenter. This provides for an exciting work environment to support, sell and be a major part of. C-level mgmt know what they are doing to build a company (and software) from scratch. Employees are treated well and compensated accordingly. Anyone that leaves Centrify usually ends right back at Centrify.


    It is really hard to find a reason to leave.

    Keep up the aggressive approach to product development and sales!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Centrify (Santa Clara, CA).


    Had a friend refer me for a product marketing role. After being ignored for what seemed like months, I finally heard that the hiring manager wanted to speak with me. I was ready to speak with her, but then I was contacted by their HR person saying that she had to screen me first. My conversation with the HR representative was extremely poor. She was very nitpicky and was fixated on my "lack" of direct domain experience even though I clearly explained to her how I fit the role from both a hard and soft skill perspective. By the end of the conversation, she practically demanded that I give her my salary information on the spot -- something which I never do (and frankly, no one should either -- my past salary experience should have no bearing on my interest in the role). At the end of the day, I was informed that the hiring manager decided to continue looking at other candidates - considering that the position was open for months before I even talked with her, I definitely wish her the best of luck in finding that unicorn that fits her needs because given my knowledge of the space, she was going to need it -- especially since she didn't have it herself.
