Why CrowdStrike?

With its explosive-growth, tripling year over year, CrowdStrike is a global cybersecurity company. In 2017, we reached the $1 Billion Valuation, having $256M invested by Google Capital, Accel, Warburg Pincus and other leading VCs. Recently, Forbes called CrowdStrike “The World’s Newest Unicorn” in the security space, and for good reason too. CrowdStrike was the first to pin the data breach at the Democratic National Committee on Russia, and provides the most comprehensive product offerings in the cybersecurity space. We are laser focused on preventing major cyber breaches that destroy organizations and individual lives.

Why choose a career in cybersecurity? In the next five years, over $1 trillion will be spent on cybersecurity, making it the fastest growing and one of the only recession proof sectors of tech. But more specifically, why CrowdStrike? It’s simple - speed of innovation, industry recognition, generous compensation/benefits, dedicated sales enablement program, track record of promoting from within rapidly, abundant tools and resources, and a fun and supportive work environment in a hot and innovative space.
