Our Mission

At Palo Alto Networks®, everything starts and ends with our mission:

Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.

We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren’t easy goals to accomplish — but we’re not here for easy. We’re here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we’re looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.

Your Career

To stay ahead of the curve, it’s critical to know where the curve is, and how to anticipate the changes we’re facing. For the fastest growing cybersecurity company, the curve is the evolution of cyberattacks, and the products and services that proactively address them. The Product Strategy team helps us do just that, by focusing on critical strategic and business challenges to drive and support our industry leadership and growth. We roll up to the Chief Product Officer and operate in an “unpolitical,” tight-knit environment with a supportive, learning-oriented and fun culture. 

Your efforts will directly contribute to our trajectory and success, by ensuring all levels of the organization have the insights to address complex technology & business issues, make important decisions, and grow effectively. Your data expertise, business insight, ability to paint the “big picture” as well as dive into the details, and influence will help you collaborate with different teams to solve problems, uncover opportunities, and drive results.
