We defined the machine identity protection market and our orchestration platform protects the largest, most sensitive networks in the world. Our market-leading innovation is driven by a growing intellectual property portfolio of 30 patents.

We have three offices where we meet around the water cooler to collaborate, inspire and encourage:

Utah Office

Outdoor enthusiasts welcome! The office is located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, one of the biggest playgrounds in the world. We've got the greatest snow on earth and we're willing to share.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sandy, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Venafi (Sandy, UT) in February 2012.


    Interviewed with head of engineering for one hour. His questions were theory/personality/coding based. Built instant report. He was extremely personable and friendly yet frank and honest. After that interview he had me interview with two engineers from the department. They asked very in-depth questions based on C# and JavaScript and had me write some code in both languages that solved certain problems. Both were extremely skilled and knowledgeable, yet came across as friendly and personable. I was invited to interview with the executive staff several weeks later. These interviews were much more about personality, cultural fit, type questions. All of them were very engaging, passionate individuals and extremely good at their respective jobs. They were also much tougher on my resume and were more difficult to read. I was then invited back to interview with the CEO. This was the highlight of the interviewing process. He was relaxed and comfortable and was far more interested in me as a person than about my skill-set. He helped educate me on why I would want to work for Venafi. Overall, fantastic process!
