Security Engineer


Brainshark was founded in 1999 with one vision: to transform the way business people create and share content. From this vision, the Brainshark platform was born – enabling the average business person with only basic tools, like PowerPoint and the phone, to create high-impact video presentations that help lower costs and drive business value. Before the ideas of user-generated content, software-as-a-service and online video became standard practice, Brainshark was already pioneering these concepts to enhance business communications.  Today, Brainshark helps thousands of companies around the world improve productivity with cloud-based business presentation solutions for sales, marketing, and training.

We’re delivering cloud-based solutions to the Fortune 1000.  Because of the high-profile nature of our customers and the increasing focus on security, our customers and prospects are demanding the highest level of security standards in Brainshark’s products.  That’s where you come in…
