Company Reviews

I love working at Duo for the culture and the challenges. Everyone at Duo truly cares about each other, and cares about helping our customers succeed in their mission. This, combined with the thrill of solving some of infosec's biggest problems, the right way, makes Duo an incredible place to work.

Two weeks after joining Duo, I made the decision to move to Austin to help grow our world class Engineering team. Why you ask? The culture, the people, and the mission. Duo's culture is real, not just words on a poster. It shows in how we work as a team to solve challenging problems, and in how we interact with each other and our customers every day. Duo is on a mission to make security easy and accessible for everyone, making the world a better place... how can you not love that!?
