SurfEasy is hiring!

We’re looking for a front end web developer to join our team! Could it be you?

Here’s a little bit about us:

Our beginnings…

SurfEasy started in 2012 out of a desire to enable people to protect their online privacy and security. Our CEO and founder Chris Houston asked himself, “Just how many Wi-Fi networks do I connect to on a daily basis?” Sixteen networks later he knew there was a real need for online privacy on the go. And so the idea for our Private Browser was born.

With the help of the Kickstarter community, who helped us exceed our funding goal by over 555%, we launched at CES 2012. Today, the browser is used by customers in over 55 countries.

What’s next…

In mid-June, we’re releasing SurfEasy VPN for iOS, Android, OSX and Windows. This next-generation of our product portfolio extends the SurfEasy protection our customers know and love to every device they use to access the web. All Internet traffic in and out of computers, smartphones and tablets will be encrypted through our global SurfEasy Private Network.

That means our user’s personal information is safe and secure from prying eyes; consider it a secure tunnel to the Internet – all in an easy-to-use package. Want to check it out? Download SurfEasy VPN on Google Play and iTunes.

Why you want to work with us…

We’re a friendly and dedicated team of devs, PR, marketing and sales folks. Sharing our King Street West office space with other start-ups means the energy here is palpable. We work hard but never hesitate to connect over a beer from the fridge, conveniently situated near our printer.

The opportunity for growth is high so the sky is the limit. You’ll have the opportunity to share your ideas, be heard and manage projects.

If you’re results-oriented and love a challenge, you’ll fit right in. Don’t delay. Apply today! Visit our Careers page to apply for the web developer position. We can’t wait to hear from you.
