An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

On a quarterly basis, we have a companywide gathering that we affectionately call BEASTMODE. It’s a great opportunity for “Canaries” from across the country to come together, level-set on the state of the business, get to know each other better, and build a close knit community trying to make a positive impact on the world.

Dave

Director, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) reached the milestone of 10,000 spec/unit tests to validate our detection logic, an indicator of how diligently we maintain our detectors. Continued validation that everything is working as anticipated is key to ensuring a successful security program.

Joe

VP, Customer Security Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Curiosity. If you are asking questions, building on what you just learned, and relating it to something known, then you are truly curious about what you’re learning and you will become an expert.

Diane

Director of Product Support

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As we continue to grow and add specialized focus across digital media, video, and an even more robust content program, I want the team to be able to take all the great insights and educational pieces and recommendations and make it easy for people to find them, understand them, and implement them. To be able to use what we’re doing in marketing in

Brianne

Director, Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am most proud of the fact that the culture of the team has not only stayed in tact, but has matured and elevated, despite the rapid growth. Senior team members constantly go out of their way to ensure that new CSEs are welcomed, growing, and set up for success. Success is rooted in team dynamics and culture.
