Software Developer Co-op

Murder. Terrorism. Child exploitation. Everyday, law enforcement around the world uses the tools made by Magnet Forensics to help find the evidence to not only solve these crimes but to stop them from happening in real time. The stakes are high and that’s why we care so much about what we do.

What we are looking for:

We hire passionate people who enjoy technical challenges. We love problem solvers who want to keep learning, individually and as part of the team. We want people who collaborate and help others. We foster a team environment where everyone is comfortable sharing their ideas, because we understand that with diversity of thought, we will build the best products.
