Mission: SS8 supplies Enterprises, Governments, and Service Providers with Communications Analytics and Network Forensics solutions, called Communications insight.

SS8 Networks – Why Work For Us?


Over the following decade, SS8 evolved into a global expert in next-generation networks and a trusted network compliance solution to five of the world’s largest service providers.

We dramatically expanded our solution portfolio in 2011 with Intellego, a next generation communication analytics platform, and SS8 sensors capable of monitoring high speed communication flows and generating enriched High-Definition Records (HDRs) from those flows. These capabilities became the technology foundation for six of the 10 largest law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the world to identify, track and apprehend suspects-of-interests (SOI) in today’s complex communication environment.

In 2016, we took our proven technology and extensive understanding of investigative workflows to the enterprise with the introduction of SS8 BreachDetect. SS8 BreachDetect is a time machine for breach detection, providing companies the unique ability to rewind and pinpoint the “devices-of-interest” in finding, tracking and stopping breaches.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SS8 Networks (San Jose, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call from the recruiter to schedule an 45 min phone interview.
    phone interview mostly focussed on my resume and security related concepts.
    drilled a lot on my resume.
    Didn't get any reply from the recruiter after first phone interview. Followed up for two weeks but recruiter didn't even replied. Checked the position status after few weeks it was showing closed.
