WHO WE ARE

Panaseer is a start-up at the intersection of data science and big data technology in the rapidly growing cybersecurity sector. We've raised over $15million in funding and have won numerous awards - most recently being named "Hottest CyberTech Startup" at TechCrunch's Europas Awards.

The Panaseer platform takes data from security, IT and business solutions to build trusted asset inventories, identify gaps in security controls and arm both security teams and executives with metrics that enable them to make decisions. By automating security control monitoring and reporting it helps Security, Risk and IT teams collaborate more effectively and answer the most challenging questions they face. Questions like: ‘How secure are our organisation's most critical assets?’, and ‘Where do I prioritise my limited resources for best effect?’

We're a growing team, based in central London and the US, inspired by our mission to give businesses the insight they need to become more secure.

Sound good? We're on the lookout for enthusiastic designers with fresh perspectives to help us deliver the Panaseer vision.

  • Delivering design via concept sketches, wireframes, interaction designs, user flows or prototypes, as required, to enable our users to gain actionable and relevant insight from their security metrics. For example by browsing inventories of applications, devices and security specific information about their organisation.
  • Carrying out competitor analysis and research for projects tracking industry, UX/UI trends and competitor sites and strategies.
  • Seen as an advocate and source for inspiration for clean, simple user-centred designs within the team and business.
