What we are up to

We aim to rebalance the global game of cybersecurity through a collaborative approach.

Who we are

CrowdSec is a well-financed, human-sized team of experts in cybersecurity. Most of the team works remotely since day 1. Our software is used in a little less than 100 countries worldwide by thousands of users and we intend to get millions of them. By providing collaborative security tools, we will protect everyone. We are animated by a mission: making the Internet a safer place, all together.

What you get

A competitive salary, stock options, an eye opening, behind-the-curtain, adventure in the field of cyber security, experience sharing with repeat entrepreneurs and a job with a greater purpose. Good chances you could be part of an industry-defining adventure, in its early days.

The role at a glance

At CrowdSec, our priority is to deliver great, robust, and versatile open source software to offer digital protection to the greatest number. Our community is our greatest strength and by growing it, we will outnumber hackers. Eager to tackle the biggest challenge of this decade?

Our mission is to deter opportunist and organized Cybercrime, through an Internet scale, real-time, security network. This network is powered by thousands of users, sharing with one another the aggression they blocked with our open-source software. By coupling this local behavior analysis and sharing its findings within our community, we create a giant hacker interferometer, a large scale reputation system, a Crowd Sourced Cyber Threat Intelligence of unprecedented magnitude, that will counter the vast majority of technical hacks. 

Success is only possible if CrowdSec reaches a threshold of 100K users by July 2022, and a million users in 2025. By definition, our market is a winner takes all one and speed is the essence. 

As the Head of Partnerships, expanding our partnership network and user base as well as converting them into premium users are your only priorities. Everyone else in the company works towards the same goal, but you prolong our efforts through partnership development to increase our geographical and technical footprint and drive revenue. Your main OKR is the number of deals signed and the number of users/installs those deals generated.
