Veracode – Why Work For Us?


Veracode envisions a world where the software fueling our economic growth and solving society’s greatest challenges is developed secure from the start.

Our mission is to give companies a comprehensive and accurate view of software security defects so they can create secure software, and ensure the software they are buying or downloading is free of vulnerabilities. As a result, companies using Veracode are free to boldly innovate, explore, discover, and change the world.


We work hard to create an environment where employees experiment, learn, imagine, play, create, and treat each other kindly. What does that look like? In our offices, you’ll see:

  • Everyone working on projects of their own choosing during our bi-annual Hackathon.
  • Employees gathered in the kitchen on Fridays at 4:04 p.m. for refreshments and a few laughs. (Can you guess how 404 Fridays got its name?)
  • A bake sale, a food drive, a donation collection, or a mountain of kids’ gifts piled in our kitchen in December. Charitable giving is a major part of working at Veracode.
  • Employees attending conferences, a training class, or an online class. We offer numerous training and career development opportunities.


You Change the World, We'll Secure It

We're focused on that mission every day. Application security isn't part of our business, it's our only business. And it's the driving force behind everything we do. At Veracode, we inspire a culture of innovation and infuse creativity into all our initiatives.

When you work at Veracode, you become part of a community of professionals dedicated to solving problems and helping each other reach their fullest potential. Many companies talk about diversity, but because we focus on passion and abilities above all else, Veracode is a made up of professionals from every background imaginable, and that includes our leadership team.




Named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant five times in a row, Veracode is one of the fastest growing companies in the fastest growing segment of the security industry. Security defects in software means breaches are increasing, and the need for vulnerability testing will only grow.

Veracode envisions a world where the software fueling our economic growth and solving society’s greatest challenges is developed secure from the start.

Our mission is to give companies a comprehensive and accurate view of software security defects so they can create secure software, and ensure the software they are buying or downloading is free of vulnerabilities.

    I have been working at Veracode full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Veracode team is the best
    Leader in the application security market
    Independent company with a secure financial baking
    Application Security is one of the fasted growing markets

    Cons

    Veracode had a lot of change in the last 18 month. Bought by CA and then Broadcom bought CA. Broadcom sold Veracode in January 2019. When you see some of the reviews you can understand the negative side with all this changes but all of this is in the past. Veracode is now independent backed by Thoma Bravo

    Advice to Management

    Keep the current direction

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Veracode (Burlington, MA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward and pleasant. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and an on-site technical interview with 3 developers and the hiring manager. Each interview took 30 minutes. I was invited for another round of interviews with the VP of engineering and HR.
