More than 10,000 businesses worldwide use, trust, and recommend Malwarebytes.

We’ve created a fantastic culture that our employees love and were recently named in the top 10 of Fortune Magazine’s “Great Place to Work” list. We’re pretty proud of all that too. We’re growing fast and are looking for some great people to join us.
As cyber threats become more dangerous and complex, the ability and prowess of the malware fighter must grow to match the enemy. At Malwarebytes, we use these advanced abilities to detect and prevent malware from reaching the user, however as the threat increases with new exploits being developed all the time and the enemy heavily backed by cyber-crime organizations we are developing powerful and proactive measures to fight back. To do this, we need individuals who can dig into the seedy underworld of the internet to gather intelligence and stay one-step ahead of the enemy, bringing that intelligence back to the eyes and ears of the public so they can protect themselves from dangers beyond their imagination. Malwarebytes success is attributed to our “outside-of-the-box” methods of thinking and we want to bring in more individuals who can look at a picture and see a thousand different images. Be prepared to never turn off your brain as we take the fight to the bad guys’ front door, for the safety and peace of mind of all users.
