Meet the Defiant Team

This entry was posted in Wordfence on September 25, 2018 by Dan Moen   13 Replies

In August, most of our team attended DefCon, a hacker conference in Las Vegas attended by tens of thousands of security professionals. All of us work remotely, so it is always really special to spend time together as a team.

While we were there we completed a fun project. We created a video with footage from many of our team events and interviews of team members talking about what it’s like to work at Defiant. We’re really happy with how it turned out, and thought you might enjoy getting to know the team behind Wordfence a little better and how we work together to keep your sites safe.

Great to see the masterminds behind an amazing product! Thanks for all that you do-- as a former web developer I wish I worked for a company like this then. But it's ok, I get to work with you now and reap the benefits of top-notch hard working individuals-- that are cool too. Keep up the great work. Gracias mil!

What a great video! Working from home is really a true luxury - I have been doing it on and off for many years now and the ability to use your own kitchen for lunch, use your own bathroom, and be more-or-less "distraction-free" while working really allows you to get A LOT more work done on any given day.

My experience with working IN offices was always that there was so much cross-chatter / yelling / shouting, that I would have an incredibly hard time staying focused - so working remotely or from home allows me to really concentrate on my work and be much more productive, which makes me AND my clients very happy :)

Defiant - you guys look like you are doing everything right, hats off to you!
