S-RM is a global intelligence and cyber security consultancy.  Since 2005, we’ve helped some of the most demanding clients in the world solve some of their toughest information security challenges.

We’ve been able to do this because of our outstanding people.  We’re committed to developing sharp, curious, driven individuals who want to think critically, solve complex problems, and achieve success.

But we also know that work isn’t everything. It’s about the lives and careers it helps us build.  We’re immensely proud of this culture and we invest in our people’s wellbeing, learning, and ideas every day.

We’re excited you’re thinking about joining us.



Our Cyber Security division is the fastest-growing part of S-RM.  The cyber sector is always evolving, and our Advisory, Ethical Hacking, and Incident Response practices are in more demand than ever.

We’re building a team to meet this challenge.  We’re quick to respond, innovate, and improve.  We don’t get too hung up on hierarchy or bureaucracy.  If your ideas are good enough, we’ll empower you to implement them.  If you’re the best person to talk to a customer, you’ll get that opportunity, regardless of the title in your email signature. And when you need a hand, your team will always have your back.

We also don’t believe there’s a typical cyber security professional.  We’ve built a team of intelligence analysts, technical specialists, software developers, investigators, risk managers, and more.  You’ll always find a range of perspectives and expertise to help you learn and grow.

If that sounds like your kind of team, we’d like to hear from you.
