ExtraHop Networks – Why Work For Us?

If you could make sense of all the conversations traversing the wire in your datacenter, you could learn a lot about your IT and business operations. After all, everything transacts on the wire. Here's the rub: insights don't just appear from packets on the network. You need to transform those raw, unstructured packets into a structured form—wire data—in order to derive actionable insight.

In the past, organizations made sense of packets on the network by recording them and performing offline analysis of those stored packets. That approach does not scale in today's complex and hyperdynamic environments, and results in data that only network experts can understand. It's time for a technology that can continuously transform this flood of packet data into structured wire data so that all teams can benefit.

Wire Data Processing GraphicExtraHop transforms unstructured packets on the network into structured wire data so that users can explore and visualize it in real time.

ExtraHop has pioneered an innovative approach that transforms unstructured packets into structured wire data, and presents that information—in real-time—for all teams to explore and visualize. This is possible through new technology that reassembles packets into complete sessions and flows between devices, and then extracts key data from those communications as they occur.

We're inspired by what we do for our customers. That inspiration fuels our culture. We care deeply about the quality of our work, from collaborating with our team members to developing industry-leading technology. We also care deeply about having fun, from labeling our own beer, hosting game nights, to celebrating sales wins.

But don’t take our word for it. Puget Sound Business Journal awarded ExtraHop a gold medal prize for Washington’s Best Workplaces. Interop and The Stevie Awards recognized ExtraHop for our innovative work.

If you want to make a difference and have fun doing it, come join our talented team.

    Great benefits, flexible hours. You're rewarded based on your output, not the number of hours you spend at your desk.


    Bonus structure and review process are confusing.

    Easy Interview


    Complete mess, they had me do some kind of take home test, gave zero feedback on it. Lines of communication were a mess, no one had any idea what was going on. What they don't tell you is they have a policy is NEVER allowing an applicant to apply for another job if they wash out. It's absolutely insane. You have literally one shot at this company and they will never ever consider you for another role.

    Which is made all the worse by the fact that their interview process is convoluted.
