At Automox we are on a mission to revolutionize how organizations harden and secure every endpoint across their organization. To do this, we’re building a massively scalable, cloud-native solution to protect hundreds of millions of enterprise endpoints globally.
As companies face continually growing threats and a rapidly expanding attack surface, understaffed and alert-fatigued organizations need more efficient ways to eliminate their exposure to security vulnerabilities. Automox is a modern cyber hygiene platform that closes the aperture of attack by more than 80% with just half the effort of traditional solutions.
Automox enforces OS & third-party patch management, security configurations, and custom scripting across Windows, macOS, and Linux from a single intuitive console. IT and SecOps can quickly gain control and share visibility of on-prem, remote and virtual endpoints without the need to deploy costly infrastructure.
In this key leadership role, the Chief Architect will report directly to the Chief Product Officer. You will work closely with the senior leadership team to get a 360 view of industry trends, customers’ POV, and Automox’s team and culture. You will lead the design and implementation necessary to tackle one of the largest scale challenges yet to be solved in endpoint security.
