Posted 4 months ago


We’re continually working towards making Kasada the best place to work, for everyone. We are deeply passionate about not only embracing diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression, but in building deep relationships, seeking to understand each other, to empower each other to bring our best selves together to collaborate and innovate each day. We value different experiences, we trust each other and we ultimately focus on delivering a positive impact both on each other and the world around us. Even if you are not sure that you quite meet all of the qualifications, please reach out - we’d love to hear from you.

Kasada can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity, assuming candidates have eligible working rights and a sufficient timezone overlap with their team. As our offices re-open, Kasadians can choose to work remotely, return to an office or work hybrid, unless it’s necessary for the role to be performed in the office. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually.

At Kasada, our mission is to bring internet control and safety back to the hands of humans. Deployed at the edges of the internet, we continuously collect and analyse large amounts of data in real time, stopping fraud and malicious attacks such as account takeovers and denial of service.

We work on the challenging task of defeating bots and we need to support a very high amount of traffic. Every millisecond counts! You will be working on much more than the usual three tier application at Kasada.
