How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Having started as an AppSec Analyst in 2019 I can say that my career has grown significantly here at NowSecure. I've had the opportunity to be involved in several different projects while also being able to display my technical and leadership skills.


Manager, Application Security Services

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I learned that overworking doesn’t equal success. Working with balancing other priorities of life can actually lead to more success both professionally and personally. Since I have been here I am more relaxed and have the flexibility to be available for my family and can step away if needed, which allows me to be more productive at work.
