Duo Security – Why Work With Us?

Making Security Simple Means Making Security Effective 

Our mission is to be the worldwide leader in secure access for companies of all sizes. Duo Security protects organizations against data breaches by ensuring only legitimate users and appropriate devices have access to sensitive data and applications - anytime, anywhere.

Duo was founded with the belief that security can only be effective if it is easy to use. Through that vision, Duo has built a world-class security platform that is actually enjoyable to use. Duo supports thousands of customers and millions of users in organizations like Accenture, Boston Medical, Emblem Health, Facebook, Tanium, Toyota, Twitter, Virginia Tech, Yelp and others, and enjoys the highest NPS score in the industry. Duo was founded by CEO Dug Song, and CTO Jon Oberheide, two respected pioneers in the security community. The company has offices in Ann Arbor, Detroit, San Francisco, Austin and London.

Skateboard. Guitars. Mohawks. Owl Costumes.

At Duo you'll find them all - but these are not what defines our culture.

Our products are based on empathy. This approach allows us to really understand our client's needs. To listen to them. To achieve our mission of supporting their mission. That applies to our people, too.

What makes Duo special is the inclusiveness of our team. All ideas, backgrounds, and approaches are welcome - and encouraged. We share a deep passion for the work we do, and for each other. 

We also believe that to do your best work in the office you need to have a robust life outside of it. This belief shapes our policies, our benefits, and how we treat our team.

We're the most loved company in security. Come build with us.

Every employee makes a difference at Duo. From developing new ways to prevent security breaches to helping customers maintain their own success, we're always looking for ways to improve. It's an environment where you can pursue your own ideas about how to build a great business. We pride ourselves on having an open, collaborative environment where people can do great work, learn a lot and have fun.

Building a better future.

At Duo, you have an opportunity to build products that address one of the biggest global business challenges faced today. 

Our team is what makes Duo special. Every day you'll work beside leaders in their field rocket scientists to coders to designers. 

We're in high-growth mode, that means a lot of opportunity for growth and development (and of course some chaos at times). 

We also believe that a thriving personal live is the key to a successful team, and take our commitment to work-life balance seriously.

Want to work at the forefront of technology with a company that supports some of the largest and fastest growing organizations in the world? But you're in an early stage of your career? No worries!

    - Life has been so good here, people's expectations is a little out of whack with what to expect from a workplace (high expectations)
    - Like any tech product company, innovation needs to stay high or the whole thing becomes irrelevant

    They dropped the ball, a lot. I'd schedule a call with them, and they would forget. I'd be deep in the interview process, talking about "running my own team," only to never hear from them ever again.
