Teaching cyber security to young adults is hard. Really hard. It's a challenging (and sometimes dry) subject that requires an unusual delivery mechanism to be effective for this age group. At CyberStart, we are constantly focused on how we solve this problem.
As a team, we've built a cutting-edge and fun security education platform that transports students on an epic learning journey and gets them enthusiastic about a career in cyber.
Our product, design and marketing teams work to create an immersive and accessible product that puts user experience first. Our technology team builds a scalable platform which is used daily by tens of thousands of people. And our security team build hundreds of interactive challenges to inspire students from a range of backgrounds!
We're always looking for smart, creative and determined people to help us solve interesting and hard problems in security, design, technology and more - and you could be one of them! We usually have a handful of open roles, but we're also open to receiving general applications from those who think they'd have something to contribute to the team.View open roles
Flexible & remote working options
We were operating as a remote business long before covid, so we're well accustomed to working this way. We also have an amazing office in the Cotswolds with an on-site gym, a fully stocked drinks fridge, and all the snacks.
Generous holiday allowance & wellbeing hour
We offer 28 days plus Bank Holidays per year, with a Christmas shut down. Plus, we give our employees an hour out of each working week to dedicate to their mental or physical health.
Fantastic training & development opportunities
We love helping our employees up-skill and develop themselves, so we’re committed to funding training and development opportunities like CIPD and SANS courses, to name a few.
We solve hard problems
It's not our style to shy away from difficult challenges. Our focus on hard problems and the mix of skills we bring to the table to solve them is what sets us apart.

The people who use CyberStart are at the centre of everything we do, which is why we will always aim for the best user experience above all else.

We take time to consider the bigger picture, ensuring our everyday actions are always striving to make a wider positive impact.
