strongDM is a customer-first company that has a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:

Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."

We built a technical product for technical buyers who have a high bar and low tolerance for sales spin. Customers love us because everyone on our team works crazy hard to win and maintain trust.

We have a fully distributed, tight-knit team, and as we scale, we must ensure the continuity of:

How close we are - in our daily routines, as we work through tough times, when we meet in person
Our core values - they got us to where we are today, and they’re just as important as we scale
Our camaraderie - we like each other :) and we like our work. We want it to stay that way.
