About StrongKey

StrongKey is making the internet safer for everyone – from individual offices, small-to-medium businesses, and some of the largest enterprises in the world. We are equipped with a decade-and-a-half of experience and tech development, a vision of bringing security to those who need it most, and a significant round of funding to help make it happen.

Founded in 2001 as StrongAuth, Inc., we have been solving complex problems related to data security and user authentication ever since. We encrypt documents sent around the European Central Bank, protect every e-ticket StubHub has on the market, and secure the credit card data of anyone who uses SurveyMonkey – among over 50 other enterprise customers around the globe. And in 2018, we are taking those same security innovations and bringing them to a market too-long ignored: small-to-medium sized businesses, individual practitioners, and local government. (At the current rate, it is more likely than not that an SMB will be hacked – 55% of SMBs were attacked in 2016!)

We are at a pivotal time to grow. It’s time to capitalize on the success stories and proven track record around the globe, and it’s time to scale up our enterprise side of the business. It is also time to launch the new StrongKey Tellaro to serve smaller groups who have no other option. It’s time to bring our innovative, affordable, open-source solutions to a market facing an ever-growing threat of cyberattacks.

This means a unique opportunity for people joining the StrongKey team. We can offer the autonomy, excitement, strategy-setting, navigating ambiguity, and challenge of a startup. And yet, all of that is backed up with 17 years of proven security, thought leadership, and a working business model. If you are tired of being lost in the crowd or feeling like you don't have the opportunity for personal impact, we think we could be a compelling place for you to work. And if you drool at the opportunity to collaboratively create something new, we want you on board.
