Our culture

Domino, Game

Changing jobs can be a daunting move.  Let us help you.



1) We are the first full-service cyber-security company in the Middle East.

2) Because we are new company, you can create products and services from a blank sheet of paper, rather than building on legacy systems.

3) We believe in succeeding at things other people have decided are impossible.

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.

6) You’ll work as part of a team to get things done, rather than duplicating the effort of others and competing with them to solve the same problems.

At DarkMatter we beleive in letting our employees speak for themselves!

DarkMatter is a fast-growing, fast-changing company. It can be challenging for people who need order and certainty but it’s thrilling for those who seek variety and novelty. Those who succeed tend to display courage, determination, resilience and curiosity.
• We attract tier-one global talent. Every DarkMatter employee, from engineers to vice presidents, has demonstrated sustained innovation, excellence and impact in their work.

• DarkMatter is the only cyber security company in the Middle East region, and one of an elite few globally to offer an end-to-end portfolio of solutions ranging from advisory and infrastructure provision, through to intellectual property and end-user devices.

• We engage the highest calibre of cyber-security experts, who have undergone exhaustive vetting by governments and large corporations, and so are trusted implicitly by our clients.

We aim to create a workplace that is efficient, effective, and open to knowledge transfer. In 2018 alone DarkMatter staff covered nearly 750,000 km for professional development whilst attending 190 training events. We offer ongoing programmes of training and professional learning alongside on-the-job learning assignments, mentored by our senior and mid-level staff.
