About Blumira and Our Culture

By making detection and response rapid, simple, and affordable, we can help organizations of all sizes - especially small and medium-sized businesses - which have been neglected, priced-out, or, simply—failed—by existing solutions. In helping them, we help their customers, and, overall, make the Internet a safer place. We have a platform, a vision, and a team that can turn the tide. To realize our vision, we're looking for inquisitive and driven teammates, like you!
