We're a small company. We're based in the North West of England. Maybe you've never even heard of PortSwigger. So why would you think about joining us? Here's why...

Work on a world-class software product:

  • Burp Suite is the de facto standard toolkit used by web security professionals.
  • The product combines outstanding usability with deep technical capability.
  • For many years, Burp Suite has pushed the boundaries of web security testing tools, and is the product against which any imitator must be judged.
  • We have a fantastic future roadmap for improving our product, and are growing our team in order to convert these ideas into reality faster.

Work with outstanding people:

  • PortSwigger Web Security was founded by Dafydd Stuttard, a highly experienced web security consultant and programmer, author of The Web Application Hacker's Handbook, and a recognized leader in the industry.
  • Dafydd still leads the development of Burp Suite, and new recruits will be working directly and collaboratively with Dafydd.
  • We only hire truly exceptional individuals. Every member of the development team (and the wider company) has outstanding abilities, offering a great working and learning environment.

Work in a successful small company:

  • We have enjoyed strong organic growth every year of our existence and continue to grow strongly.
  • Our software is used daily by thousands of people, and numerous high-profile companies in over 100 countries.
  • We are a small highly focused team, and plan to grow organically while remaining lean and agile.
  • We are professional without being corporate - no pointless admin, protocols, management meetings or time reporting.

Have fun:

  • Work in our modern offices in the heart of the lively and lovely town of Knutsford (aka the "Henley of the North West").
  • Be surrounded by a silly amount of technology and toys.
  • Help shape the future of a popular and respected software product.
  • Have an employer who is committed to making hard work enjoyable, having fun, and respecting your life outside work.
