Prelude is hiring

At Prelude, we are focused on bringing advanced security to all organizations. We are building a better defensive cyber infrastructure by making red-teaming accessible. Want to read more?

What is Prelude Operator?

Prelude Operator is a platform that acts as your red team (or augments your existing red team), allowing for continuous security assessments to be performed against your infrastructure. Operator executes chains of automated attacks and orchestrates them in ways that seek to mimic what an adversary would do if they were dropping into your system. Our first goal has been to make it as easy as possible to accomplish this, so that organizations of all sizes and capabilities can reap the benefits of having a safe overlay of adversary-like behavior running on their system. Operator can also be used to verify and validate your current defensive tools - testing whether real attacks can be detected in your existing system. It is designed as an easy-to-use desktop application with simple, transparent features and pricing. You can download it for free.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply?

You can email us at and we'll get back to you. Please send anything you think will give us a good idea of your background/capabilities.

How big is Prelude currently?

We are five full-time employees - a CEO (who has had a previous startup that exited successfully), a CTO (who previously led one of the largest open-source projects in this space), a security engineer, developer/designer and operations. We are planning to grow to ~10 by the middle of 2021.

Where is Prelude located?

We are spread out across Vancouver, BC, NYC and DC - but expect the majority of the security team to be based in DC going forward (although we don't care where you are!). Remote employment is an option.

Have you raised money?

Yes - we are very well capitalized from a select group of investors with bottom-up enterprise and/or security experience. Happy to tell you more over the phone.

What makes Prelude different than other security/tech companies?

This is a nuanced question that we'd love to discuss during the interview process, but in short:

  • We are completely focused on making advanced security accessible - through design, transparent pricing, ease of use, etc...
  • We focus only bottom-up - building and selling for developers, devops, and technical security professionals. We believe that increasingly, the best enterprise software is sold bottom-up in every category.
  • We are designing products to eventually protect smaller organizations - vendors, SMBs, IT teams, not just elite/large Fortune 500 companies.
