Professionals who have joined our team from high-security industries such as defense and pharmaceuticals marvel at the work we do. We operate a highly redundant, fully documented data environment using the best technology available. We often build proprietary security solutions to make sure the right people have the right access. We are not looking for rockstars - we’re looking for roadies with a passion for protection.

Servers, data centers, databases, video conferencing, even facilities management are all covered by our infrastructure team. We keep hardware operating, make sure databases are up and running, but mostly we look for innovators, technology professionals who have driven change in their previous workplace environments and who can troubleshoot as member of a highly skilled team.
