We’re a scrappy, news and analytic start up, completely obsessed with national and global security issues. If you wake up thinking about whether anti-ISIS strategies are doing any good, or if the CIA really has a program called ‘Treadstone’, we’re probably gonna like each other. OK, probably kidding about the ‘Treadstone’ thing, but a healthy dose of both curiosity and creativity are excellent things to have.
Our news site is dedicated to creating intelligent meaningful conversation with security experts from both the public and private sector. We interview the best and brightest minds who have led Intelligence Agencies or spent entire careers working undercover. We don’t have time for politics. After all, there’s a world that needs to be saved.
You can help by joining our dynamic team of start up experts. We’re a start up, which means there is enormous opportunity for growth, and we have awesome benefits like healthcare and the opportunity to own a piece of what you grow.
Let’s talk. Send your resume to: email@example.com.
