An Insider's view of Trail of Bits

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are very easy going. Since half our employees are remote, we’re a remote-first company that just happens to have 20 people working in NYC. This gives us the benefit of a flexible remote culture but also have a place to get away from home and socialize with coworkers without rigid hours.

Ryan

Principal Security Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Half of Trail of Bits is remote, so online collaboration and communication keeps us running. We make heavy use of Slack, Google Docs, Github, Trello, and video calls. Each project has its own Github repository and Slack channel, where most project communication occurs. A weekly video call provides high-level updates to the whole company.

Artem

Principal Security Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful people at Trail of Bits are self-motivated and committed to doing their best work. They are team players that are willing to participate and be involved with projects across the company. They are curious, embody a growth mindset, and actively watch out for new opportunities to help the company grow and thrive.

Mark

Senior Security Engineer

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Trail of Bits makes it really easy for each of us to create the work-life balance that works for us as individuals. There is a lot of flexibility around when and where we work, and our tools and workflows make collaboration easy in a variety of settings.
