Lead Security Engineer at MobileIron
Mountain View, CA, US

Silicon Valley is famous for its visionaries.

Those who dream of what others can’t, or won’t dare to.

Those who seek out innovation where most are satisfied with the status quo.

Those who say, “What if?” instead of “Why bother?” 

Since 2007, MobileIron has been the leader in mobile enterprise security. Our mobile-centric, zero trust approach goes beyond traditional MDM, identity, and gateway solutions by validating the user, device, applications, networks, and potential threats before granting secure access to the device. We create the intersection between high-grade security, mobile, and the way people want to work — so you can free your people to be productive without limits and passwords.
