An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

There’s a thing we do at Red Canary called BEASTMODE. On a quarterly basis, everyone comes to Denver and we spend three intense days together.The reason it’s called BEASTMODE is that in the very early days of the company, we’d spend endless hours in a single room, fueled by ample amounts of caffeine, building a company of which we could be proud.


Director, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) reached the milestone of 10,000 spec/unit tests to validate our detection logic, an indicator of how diligently we maintain our detectors. Continued validation that everything is working as anticipated is key to ensuring a successful security program.


VP, Customer Security Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Providing such an exceptional level of support and care that our customers renew and expand their commitment to partnering with us. I hope that the Red Canary level of post-sale support becomes the model our competitors and partners are chasing.


VP, Customer Care

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As we continue to grow and add specialized focus across digital media, video, and an even more robust content program, I want the team to be able to take all the great insights and educational pieces and recommendations and make it easy for people to find them, understand them, and implement them. To be able to use what we’re doing in marketing in


Director, Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am most proud of the fact that the culture of the team has not only stayed in tact, but has matured and elevated, despite the rapid growth. Senior team members constantly go out of their way to ensure that new CSEs are welcomed, growing, and set up for success. Success is rooted in team dynamics and culture.
