We do this by equipping examiners and investigators with the best digital forensics tools available, so they can accomplish their mission: Fighting crime. Protecting company assets. Guarding national security.

Who are we?

We build software that automates the recovery of digital forensic evidence, helping thousands of forensics professionals around the world find, analyze, and report on the digital evidence from computers, smartphones, IoT devices and the cloud.

Our flagship software, Magnet AXIOM, has revolutionized the work of digital forensics investigators in law enforcement and government agencies, and has been essential in use cases involving child exploitation, murder, terrorism, and more.

How we work:

We care about what we build, our customer, and about each other. We are inspired through the difference that our work makes, our culture, and our shared sense of purpose.

Our engineering team collaborates with other developers, testers, designers and forensics experts. We work in an Agile environment and we operate on a model of continuous improvement. We learn from our mistakes. We work in cross-functional teams to regularly experiment, iterate and deliver on new product goals.

We foster a team environment where everyone is comfortable sharing their ideas, because we understand that with diversity of thought, we will build the best products. We support each other through success and failure, to bring the best tools to law enforcement, government agencies and corporate customers.

What we are looking for:

We hire passionate people who enjoy technical challenges. We love problem solvers who want to keep learning, individually and as part of the team. We want people who collaborate and help others. We want you to care about helping our customers accomplish their missions.
