What is it like to work at Carbon Black in terms of your culture?  

Carbon Black is the perfect place for someone who wants to work hard and be challenged while also utilizing friendly cooperation and collaboration to achieve goals. We put a lot of emphasis on promoting a friendly, positive culture to ensure the happiness and personal growth of our employees. If an executive is not in a meeting, you can expect their office door to be open for anyone to come by to ask a question or offer a suggestion. You’d be hard pressed to find an employee who won’t greet you with a smile and introduce themselves to you on your first day. We also work hard to make sure our remote employees remember that they’re crucial members of the community even though they aren’t in Waltham on a daily basis. At most QBR meetings we give away branded gear and always ensure we’re shipping the goods to our remote employees to relish in our success along with us!

We have a culture-focused club called Life At CB that handles a number of social activities, philanthropic events, and diversity & inclusion. On the social side, we have a number of parties throughout the year as well as sports leagues, such as our softball team.

On the philanthropic side, we work closely with local nonprofits and host a bunch of our own events which benefit a range of causes, from cystic fibrosis or hurricane relief funds, to Blessings in a Backpack or the Seal Future Fund. 

For diversity & inclusion, we have three employee resource groups that support women, LGBTQ, and multicultural employees. We've also partnered with Hack.Diversity, Apprenti, and STEMatch to help underrepresented individuals grow in STEM.

The spirit of our company and its mission is reflected in the plot of the original Star Wars movie A New Hope. Our team consists of people from far and wide who do a variety of different jobs.

There are a lot of “Stormtroopers” out there who want to attack companies and steal vital information. Collectively, we represent the Rebel Alliance that is singularly focused on ensuring that the Empire of evildoers doesn’t get its hands on the information on our customers’ laptops, desktops, and servers.

However, many of our employees' favorite benefit is our flexible PTO!
