McAfee Careers for Military Service Members and Veterans

McAfee is dedicated to hiring veterans and pledges to help them transition military experience to a career in the cyber security industry. We strive to provide an environment where employees from diverse backgrounds are valued, respected, challenged, acknowledged, and rewarded. One way McAfee enables this is through our network of employee resource groups, to include the McAfee Veterans Network.

Is my military experience a benefit to McAfee?

Absolutely! McAfee realizes that military veterans have a valuable set of skills and experiences. We hire veterans into technical and less-technical roles, ranging from software engineering and IT operations, to sales, services and human resources.

Do I need an advanced or technical degree?

No. We have positions in both business and technical disciplines, and we value the leadership and skills that service members bring with their military background.

What jobs are military veterans recruited for at McAfee?

We have individuals with military backgrounds working at all levels at McAfee, from entry level jobs to senior management.

What is it like to work at McAfee?

Our culture is a great fit for military veterans. We are focused on our noble mission of protecting McAfee customers. We have a diverse and inclusive workforce where each employee has an opportunity to thrive and unleash their full career potential. We do this by fostering a culture where employees can innovate, feel included, grow their career, achieve unprecedented business results, make an impact on the communities we serve, while becoming a leader in the cybersecurity industry.

What about McAfee compensation and benefits, and does the company support Reservists and National Guard members?

McAfee believes employees are the most important investment for success, and our comprehensive compensation and benefits program reflects that. Our programs are designed to provide employees and their families with the stability of long-term financial security and protection. In addition to providing a comprehensive benefits package which is competitive with all public and large private organizations, McAfee also has programs such as Military Leave for eligible employees who are called to military service.

Do my skills and experience translate to a career at McAfee?

When making a career change from the military, it is critical to start the process early and begin thinking about how to translate your military competencies and experiences into terms and language that corporate America understands. Spend time reflecting on past positions, duties, and assignments as well as how the competencies you learned can positively impact your civilian career. We encourage veterans and service members to apply to any job for which they meet our basic qualifications and feel they can add value.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McAfee in April 2017.


    I had an informal phone interview with a recruiter before having a second formal phone interview. Everyone I spoke with from the company seemed really pleasant. They asked about recent projects and reasons I would make a strong candidate, and they really seemed interested in what I had to share.
