    What We Do

    Confiant is a cybersecurity company that protects publishers and supply-side platforms from malicious actors and puts the control back in their hands to ensure the ads delivered to a website are safe and secure. Our sole purpose is to rid the world of cybercriminals, bad actors, and malware.

    A Brief History

    Our founders, LD and Jerome, teamed up on September 2nd, 2013 to specifically reinvent how the industry tackled malvertising and low-quality ads. The then-current state of technology was at a data disadvantage against the bad actors that couldn't be surmounted without some real innovation. That “never done before” innovation took a year to figure out, and in May of 2017 they launched the industry’s first real-time verification and blocking solution, giving publishers actual control of what ads are shown to their users.

    How We Interview

    Your first contact will be with Melissa, our Sr. Operations Manager, who will go over your background, provide information about Confiant, go over the details of the opportunity, and answer any questions. If there is a mutual interest, we'll follow up quickly with a video interview with the hiring manager, an in-person team interview, and a final interview with our CEO/Co-Founder LD and Eleonore, who heads our cultural initiatives. Melissa will be available throughout the process to give you updates, and to keep the process moving.

    Confiant's Core Values

    Our team shares a core set of values that bind us together and aligns us on our vision of making digital media safe:
