Our Culture

We know that to do good work, it helps to like what you’re doing – and where you’re doing it. That’s why we’ve created a welcoming, inclusive, team-driven culture our employees want to be part of.

Be Part of Our Story

The founders of DirectDefense left roles at large corporate environments to create a company around a shared vision: give employees the ability to work independently, advance their careers, and help further the business by applying their unique abilities.

Being a small company is a big strength – we provide you with the autonomy to grow in your role and make a difference here. With fewer than 100 employees and constant evolution, there’s plenty of opportunity to advance.

  • Guiding principles of autonomy, career development, and team support
  • Significant opportunities for growth
  • Ability to work remotely or in-office

Proven Growth and Success

Since DirectDefense was founded in 2012, we have experienced steady year-over-year growth, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, because of our unique ability to serve clients effectively from anywhere.

We’ve doubled in size and continue to enjoy company stability and forward momentum, proving the vision and strategies of our founders.

And we do it by providing growth opportunities, support, and autonomy to our employees.

  • Paid certifications 
  • Paid continuing education opportunities
