Our industry is one of continuous evolution, as we work to develop increasingly advanced and powerful defences to keep ahead of the evolving cyber threats looking to damage businesses, commerce and governments, or to steal information. We know it takes the best minds and the most incredible talent to remain several steps ahead. That’s why we’re building an elite team, whose members can demonstrate an exceptional set of refined skills and competences.
Only if you have extraordinary experiences and proven accomplishments that put you at the very top of your field should you even consider applying for a position with us. To be clear, only those who can demonstrate a remarkable range of talents need apply to join the DarkMatter team.

Living in UAE

Located on the Tropic of Cancer, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is almost always sunny, and the rain, when it does fall, comes mostly in winter. The climate is excellent between November and April, while summer months are quite warm. The geography is dominated by the sea and the desert, complemented by the dramatic mountains, oases and huge sand dune seas found inland.

Situated between Europe, Africa and Asia, many parts of all three continents are only a couple hours away by airplane, so it’s no surprise the UAE is home to more than 175 nationalities.

From clothes to cuisines, in the UAE, you can find the most humble, and the most extravagant. From authentic street food to the most refined Michelin star meals, and from clothes made by the corner shop tailor to the latest haute couture, it’s all available in the fast-growing UAE, a country that has seen its population more than triple to 9.4 million people since 2000.

For leisure, residents are spoiled for choice. Some of the world’s best known names in art (Louvre and Guggenheim) are building museums in Abu Dhabi. Top universities from New York University Abu Dhabi to Paris Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi are already educating the next generation and providing exciting learning and cultural opportunities.

Annual events include Formula 1, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship, a food truck and street food festival, a classical music festival and a modern art fair. There are a wide range of organic groceries and restaurants, while in-season farmers’ markets sell UAE grown organics. Activities range from kayaking in the mangroves around Abu Dhabi city, to snorkelling sailing and boating in the Arabian Sea.

You can picnic and camp in the endless deserts of the Empty Quarter and go mountain hiking and biking in the nearby Hajar Mountains. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi offers the world’s largest indoor theme park, while water parks abound and shopping ranges from authentic souks to the most modern shopping malls. A short 90-minute drive separates Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s capital city, from Dubai, the international holiday and shopping hub.

The cosmopolitan UAE has a high average per capita income, and both Abu Dhabi and Dubai provide advanced healthcare and education, and a wide range of living accommodations. The UAE offers one of the most stable, safe and secure places to live in the world.


We are adventurers. Our people have been far and wide, and even before coming to DarkMatter, they have already chalked up significant achievements. They arrive with an innate understanding of what makes technology tick.

We don’t follow a fixed path; instead, we cut fresh trails as we help shape the cyber-security landscape.

Our teams are energised by the fact that they have a hand in building DarkMatter’s culture; that they share and exchange ideas collaboratively; that they build intellectual capital, both in terms of people and the business; and that they are leaving a legacy.

It helps that we operate in one of the most exciting industries of our generation and in a geography that is thirsty for innovation. It also helps that our people are Geniuses that bond together to make room for more success.

With more than 400 people and growing fast, DarkMatter staff come from more than 24 nationalities speaking many languages – from ‘Code’ to Croatian. We foster a start-up culture where everyone is a hands-on contributor, helping to shape the vision of the firm.

We hire people who have brilliant ideas, great ability and want to serve a cause that is bigger than themselves. DarkMatter’s Geniuses are inspired by the fact that they have a mandate to challenge convention as they solve problems, combat the smartest malicious actors, and plumb the potential of cyber security, developing solutions that allow both businesses and economies to rest easy.

we offer

Working at DarkMatter provides an experience and opportunities unlike that available at any other cyber security firm on the planet. Although we’re young, we have the credentials, the resources and the equipment of organisations with much longer histories.

We are serving an emerging market hungry for state-of-the-art solutions. Our customers are governments, enterprises and critical infrastructure operators that are committing significant resources to secure their communication, data, devices and systems.

That means you have a unique chance to test your abilities, build skills, and expand experiences designing for ‘impossible’, next-generation projects.

Tremendous professional opportunities

At DarkMatter, you have the opportunity to work with some of the most respected and experienced practitioners in the field of cyber security. Colleagues range from PhD graduates from the world’s top technology universities to respected experts who got their start as self-described hackers.

You have the opportunity to use the latest cyber security hardware and software, and to interact and gain experience working across most areas of this industry, not only because of the breadth for our services, but because our work culture encourages employees to explore new disciplines and specialisations.

Competitive packages

We provide competitive salaries and benefits that not only include comprehensive healthcare, vision and dental coverage for you and your family (as applicable), but also moving expenses, housing and education allowances (as applicable) and annual home leave tickets for overseas hires.

Continuing education and training

Whether a fresh graduate or a seasoned professional, we provide a range of training and professional learning programs to help our employees add to their skills. These programs are core to our offering because we know that unless our employees are continually learning, they are falling behind in this ever-evolving industry. We also encourage less formal learning opportunities available through challenging assignments and mentoring by our senior and mid-level staff.
