What We Do:

Hackers are constantly evolving, exploiting new vulnerabilities and targeting small businesses. They are often able to operate unimpeded and undetected in those environments—until they meet Huntress.

Huntress enables IT providers and resellers to stop hidden threats that sneak past preventive security tools. Founded by former NSA Cyber Operators—and backed by a team of ThreatOps researchers—we help our partners protect their customers and take the fight directly to hackers.

About Huntress Labs

If your career aspiration when you were a child was to fight the “bad guys” while helping the good ones, keep reading.

We’re Huntress. Through education, expertise and curiosity, our team protects our partners from today’s increasingly dangerous threat actors. Founded by former NSA Cyber Operators—and backed by a team of human ThreatOps researchers—we’re working to bring cybersecurity to the 99%: those businesses and mom-and-pop shops that lack the resources to defend themselves.

Come join the hunt and make your childhood self proud (in a 21st century kind of way).

Company Culture

We value transparency and fairness. This extends to our customers where we clearly explain why we've made business decisions, what our product does, and how we do it without misrepresenting the facts. We form partnerships with our customers rather than simply monetary transactions and it shows in the feedback and reviews we receive.

We believe that keeping the customers best interests in mind we can continue to build trust and respect with our customers, which allows the product and company to speak for itself. We take our role of being industry experts seriously. You'll find us sharing industry updates, blog postings, and best practices at our Tradecraft Tuesday monthly webinar.

We've been a remote first organization since the beginning. We routinely jump on video calls to work together to discuss features, code review, pair program, or when we have something we want to show off. Leadership hosts monthly town halls to share updates on company projects and milestones and we also celebrate individuals successes.
