Max Mikkola, Team Lead and Software Engineer
 
"It has been awesome to grow with Hoxhunt. From an early startup to a bustling scale up company. The road has brought about many interesting challenges, and it will bring in many more. Importantly we tackle these problems together, build the solutions together and learn from them together."
 
Miska Tammenpää, Junior Software Engineer
 
“Hoxhunt is brilliant because we’re focused on fixing a very real and continuously evolving problem in cybersecurity. Hoxhunt is also a very progressive company in the sense that both the tooling we use and the work practices we maintain are regularly looked at with an air of critique instead of falling blindly into old habits. These combined make it a very good place to learn real-life problem solving.
The people are amazing. It feels like people recognise that we’re all individual humans and not some sort of hive mind trying to create software and sell it. Everything is dealt with in a casual, yet effective way. It really gives off the feeling that the people actually want to solve the problems we’ve set out to solve and not “just work here.”
