Our Culture

Time to live your dream 

Push at the frontiers of cybersecurity.  Shape the digital landscape of the future.  Work among some of the most innovative and adventurous experts in the world.  


What we look for

The future of digital transformation and cyber security is waiting to be written. At DarkMatter, you’ll be part of a team that dares to dream big. More than that, you’ll bring the expertise and experience to make those dreams happen.

A great mind

Whether you have a PhD from one of the world’s best universities or learnt your skills as a hacker, it's what you can do that matters. We look for imagination, creativity, the ability to solve problems and intellectual stamina.

Experience to share

You’ve already chalked up significant achievements in your chosen field. But it’s not just about your technical know-how. You’ll also bring industry or field experience to the mix.

A commitment to collaboration

You know from experience that everyone benefits when ideas are shared and exchanged collaboratively. It’s how we build DarkMatter’s unique intellectual capital.

A leader and influencer

Like us, you’re not bound by established solutions. You’re ready for a start-up culture where everyone is a hands-on contributor, helping to shape the vision and intellectual capital of the firm.

Ready to make change happen

You never forget you’re working in one of the most exciting, fast-moving and challenging industries of a generation. But you don’t just dream about the possibilities, you see them through.

A drive for innovation

Falling back on old ways of doing things won’t work in such a fast-moving industry. You understand that risk management can be an enabler of innovation rather than a restraint.

At DarkMatter, our purpose is to protect the future by securing its technologies. It offers our clients peace of mind and our people the satisfaction of addressing important challenges.

We’re about sustainability, never sacrificing long-term success for short-term gains. And the same goes for our people. We believe in recognising and rewarding talent and giving people the opportunities they need to stretch themselves and build successful, sustainable careers. As a result, they are recognised globally for their expertise in cybersecurity and big data.

We're not tied to legacy solutions. Instead, we're able to keep pace with a world that's embracing increased automation and digitisation and changing fast. We don't look at cyber security as a series of technical challenges but as a holistic, business-critical enterprise - from strategy to products.

Diversity & Inclusion

It takes a global mindset to tackle global threats to digital security and, at DarkMatter, you’ll work alongside talented people from all over the world.

We are committed to inclusion and diversity. That’s because we want to work with the best people, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion. This commitment to inclusion and diversity is driven by the Board and informs everything we do at every level of the company.

Our multicultural, multidisciplinary workforce makes for a rich diversity of perspectives that fuels debate, creativity and lateral thinking. Our 650+ people represent more than 50 nationalities and speak many languages – from ‘Code’ to Croatian. They include system architects, software engineers, scientists, mathematicians and cryptographers.

Our inclusion and diversity informs the way we hire and develop our staff but also the way that we work with each other day to day. We also run special events informed by the diversity agenda. For example, we are active participants in International Women’s Day and run an annual Family Fun Day for all employees.

4) You’ll see the results of what you do applied to real-world problems.

5) You’ll work alongside the brightest and the best in your field.
