    Data breaches increase every year as attackers continue to target employees for access and information. Elevate Security is creating a world where employees are a company’s strongest asset in defending against hackers. We are taking on this longstanding gap in the security space with a focus on behavioral and data science to improve security behaviors across employees in a measurable way. We’re looking for extraordinary and passionate people to help us build this future and redefine the security landscape.


    Elevate Security was founded by two well-known security executives from Salesforce tackling a long-ignored aspect of security - the security behavior of your employees. For 20+ years we’ve seen significant increases in security technology spend, but at the end of the day, attackers are targeting people. We want to transform employees into an organization's strongest security asset in preventing breaches.


    We’re a mission-driven startup that values individual diversity and skills. Here are some of our values. Hopefully, they resonate with you:

    The best perk any company can have is great people
    Work when and where you work best
    Do the right thing, even if it’s not easy
    Learn from every opportunity
    Know that your expectation of yourself is higher than anyone else’s
    Diversity makes us stronger
    Choose to be transparent
    Listen, listen, listen and then get stuff done
    Be genuine and optimistic
    Customer > Company > Team > Me
