We are ExtraHop. We're on a mission to provide security teams with the intelligence they need to confront and stop advanced threats like supply chain attacks, zero day exploits, and ransomware attacks. Cyber attackers still have the advantage. We’re taking it back with creativity, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of humor. Are you ready to help us reclaim the upper hand?
ExtraHop offers an exciting, high-energy, and versatile environment in which people are encouraged and supported to collaborate on industry-leading technology and create a world-class engineering team, while they develop and enrich their individual growth.
