Remote job description

As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way. You can read more about Human Layer Security here.

Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by world-class venture capital investors, has hubs in London, San Francisco, Boston, and Austin, and London, and is one of the Top-3 2021 Best Places to Work for Women.
