WhiteHat Security – Why Work For Us?

If you are reading this, the Web is likely a pervasive part of your life. The Web also touches the lives of every person you know, every family member, every child, every friend, and everyone you meet. Using the Web, we shop, we bank, we learn, we communicate, and share some of our most intimate moments. The Web is arguably the single most important invention we'll see in our lifetime. There is no question, the safety and security of the Web, and the over one billion people using it, must be protected. That's what we do at WhiteHat Security. We help secure the Web.

Helping to secure the Web is a privilege, a responsibility given to only the most passionate, trustworthy, and experienced security professionals on the planet. From the largest Fortune listed corporations, to small mom and pop shops, non-profit organizations, to schools, and far beyond, this is whom WhiteHat helps protect every single day. We protect hundreds of the most recognized organizations on the planet by identifying the vulnerabilities in their websites that the bad guys exploit to cause harm. We transform the way organizations master vulnerability management -- offering the only solution that combines advanced cloud security technology and the world’s largest force of Web security experts.

Why Work For WhiteHat? To be part of something new, something important, something special. To be the best at what you do.
