Tigera provides Zero Trust network security and continuous compliance for Kubernetes platforms. Our Secure Enterprise Edition extends enterprise security and compliance controls to Kubernetes environments with support for on-premises, multi-cloud, and legacy environments. Tigera Secure Cloud Edition is available on the AWS marketplace and enables fine-grained security and compliance controls for Kubernetes on AWS and Amazon EKS.

Tigera powers all of the major hosted Kubernetes environments, including Amazon EKS, Azure AKS, Google GKE, and IBM Container Service. Tigera is also integrated with the major on-premises Kubernetes deployments and is shipped “batteries included” in Docker EE and fully integrated with Red Hat OpenShift.

Tigera Secure builds on leading open source projects: Kubernetes, Calico, and Istio, which Tigera engineers maintain and contribute to as active members of the cloud-native community. Our employees are experts in securing Kubernetes and our technology is deployed in the largest SaaS, financial services, gaming, and retail companies where security and compliance are critical to the business.

We are looking for passionate and skilled software engineers to join us in our mission to secure the next generation of cloud native applications. At the heart of our strategy is a set of open source networking and security projects (currently Calico, flannel, and Canal) that define the new gold standard for application connectivity within large-scale cloud environments, such as Kubernetes, OpenShift, Docker, and related technologies. Building upon this open source foundation, we are working on complementary commercial offerings to help enterprises build and operate cloud native applications and infrastructures, securely and at scale.

Why Join Us:

Tigera is on track to be the next greatest enterprise software company. We are funded by top-tier VCs, have an amazing product and a brilliant team.

We are in a very exciting, dynamic, bleeding-edge market. Kubernetes is one of the most popular open source projects in history, and is being evaluated or adopted by every major enterprise on the planet.

Our technology has been OEMed by every major cloud provider for their managed Kubernetes services, as well as integrated into the most popular commercial distributions like Docker, OpenShift, Mesosphere, and Canonical. Our rapidly growing customer base are all household names that rely on us to secure their revenue-generating applications.

The first step toward this vision of the future is to drive the broadest possible adoption of a truly cloud native approach to application connectivity, networking, and network security, which we believe dictates an open source-first strategy with packaged enterprise solutions built on open source-hence our initial focus on open source Project Calico, Istio, and related open technologies like Kubernetes.
