About the team

Our Detection and Response R&D group builds technologies for endpoint detection and continuous response against the most advanced cyber-attacks out there. The Portals team is composed of software and quality engineers developing and maintaining high performant, data intensive web applications that are directly helping in the fight against cyber breaches.

The Portals team works with our technical product managers, and alongside Backends, Sensors, and Investigation and Response teams to deliver front-end for our detection and response platform.

Our team is distributed across three different locations - United Kingdom, Poland and South Africa. Being a distributed team means a lot of flexibility, autonomy, and trust. We put additional effort in ensuring we communicate well and truly operate like a team.
