About Us

At Coalition, we bring together cyber tools, data, and deep security expertise to help customers solve cyber risk. We have over 25,000 customers, ranging from small and mid-sized businesses to Fortune 500 companies, and that number is growing fast.

We are a human centric organization that is building for the long-term. We celebrate diversity and work hard to build a culture that is inclusive for all. Our culture is built around humility, purpose, authenticity, and responsibility. We have embraced distributed and remote work and our engineering teams are clustered in California, Washington, Colorado, Texas, and Virginia,
 
Our core platform is written mostly in Python and Go and runs in Amazon Web Services. We prefer to use the right tool for the job and make pragmatic decisions about how to scale and decouple systems as we continue to grow.

    • Experience building performant SPAs using React and TypeScript from written requirements and hi-fi visual mockups.
    • Analyzing software errors with tools like Sentry, DataDog, Jaeger/Zipkin, GreyLog, or App Dynamics
