About the company
There are hundreds of cybersecurity companies telling their users what to worry about. GreyNoise is the only cybersecurity company telling users what not to worry about.

GreyNoise is an early-stage cybersecurity product company trusted by security teams all over the world. Our thousands of free users and dozens of enterprise customers use our products to:

- Understand the Internet
- Reduce drag in the Security Operations Center (SOC)
- Provide insights on opportunistic threats

Every day any given SOC has hundreds or thousands of alerts to investigate. GreyNoise takes a data-driven approach to making the SOC team more efficient from within the products they are already using (https://developer.greynoise.io/docs/3rd-party-integrations).

We operate a large network of passive collector sensors in hundreds of data centers geographically distributed all around the world. These sensors collect and analyze “Internet Background Noise” which is converted into useful insights and made accessible to our web interface and integrations.

In other words, GreyNoise is like noise canceling headphones for security teams; we tell our customers what not to worry about by eliminating pointless alerts generated by devices all around the Internet (https://viz.greynoise.io/query/?gnql=last_seen%3A1d).

We won’t stop until GreyNoise is a ubiquitous name in the security community.

- Pain can teach us everything

- Compromise is good and necessary

- Be scrappy
- No such thing as a million dollar idea, only million dollar execution
- Be better than the day before

Our (work-in-progress) longform culture document: https://greynoise.io/principles


Any security product that is a “black box” that asks you to blindly trust it should raise red flags - we believe the same is true of your place of work. We obviously think GreyNoise is doing something unique, but don’t take our word for it - ask any of our over 50 enterprise customers, investors (https://tcrn.ch/3sccCq2), thousands of happy users (https://bit.ly/3sqGgbt), or dozens of journalists (https://rb.gy/r6ooti) who have cited GreyNoise over the past few years.

**Why you should work at GreyNoise**

- You enjoy identifying and solving hard problems
- You are comfortable taking an idea from concept to customer
- You are open to both explaining your stance and questioning others in a clinical, open-minded, and respectful manner
- You want to directly impact users
- You want to grow beyond your current skill set

**Why you shouldn’t work at GreyNoise**

- You need well defined processes and responsibilities
- You prefer solving problems on your own instead of with a team
- You like knowing exactly what to expect day-to-day
- You don’t want to get your hands dirty
- You want to be the smartest person in the room
