It's Not Just Industrial Control
Systems We Care About.

Dragos seeks passionate, hard-working, fun-loving, small-ego, big-brained people. Our tagline is “Safeguarding Civilization” not because we think highly of ourselves, but because the problems we are solving are critically important, today and in the years to come. We look for ICS experts across industries who are committed to growing global expertise in the space by training the next wave of future innovators and thought leaders.

Sometimes you just gotta get outside.
Hiking is a passion.

We love to brew.
Especially when bragging rights are involved.

What’s another passion of ours?
Having a cold one with the team.

Global Intelligence

Want to hunt those who threaten civilization? Want to catch and expose threats targeting power plants, water, manufacturing systems, and other industrial control systems? Dragos threat intelligence works to discover these threats, develop innovative analytics for detection, support investigations, and incident response, and provide customers with world-class situational awareness. Unlike many other teams with a broader mission, we focus solely on operational threats to industrial control networks; this gives our analysts the time and space necessary to do world-class research and intelligence on the most advanced and significant threats in the world.

At Dragos, we are not traditional intelligence analysts; we are hunters of evil which threatens the functions of civil society. We are dedicated to the idea that intelligence not properly communicated is not intelligence at all. We get excited by the “thrill of the hunt” and support our Threat Operations Center during customer security incidents. If you are as excited about this as us, please let us know!
