Cofense: Senior Systems Engineer

Headquarters: Washington DC


Location- Remote, US based only 
Company Culture- 

We’re growing rapidly and looking for hungry Sr Systems Engineers, like you, that care about building great products that solve big problems.  We want to help you take your career to the next level.  

Our engineers work on products that make a difference in the world! From petty financial crimes up through major extortion & election hijacking events, many social engineering attacks start with phishing emails. 
We also build state of the art tools for IT and security operations centers, helping them identify & kill phishing attacks for large enterprises and organizations.
Cofense offers businesses an innovative approach to stopping phishing attacks. And while our team members do deliver best-in-class software and automation, 
they also know that the smartest machines can’t do the stuff humans are wired for—like flagging an email that appears flawless but uses the wrong nickname for the person receiving the email. 
It’s the power of collective human intelligence, which Cofense applies to work life, too, with flexible career opportunities for all levels of interests and experience. 

And, to top it all off, we have a great culture! We enjoy getting together for virtual trainings, potlucks, wellness events, happy hours, and more.
