Our Mission is to impact people’s lives by uncovering the truth and empowering others to make a difference. 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.

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 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.

At Magnet Forensics, you will be fully integrated into our software development team. You'll start by getting comfortable with the code, working through bugs and basic features, all the while writing code that will actually be seen in production. As you ramp, you’ll be given more complex features just like any other member of the team. In fact, some of the key features of our software were written by our students!

    • You are a student working towards a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering or a related discipline
    • You’re strong at object-oriented programming (Java, C#, C++)
    • You are accountable and take ownership of your projects
