About SafeBase

SafeBase makes it easy for software companies to share their security posture and automate access to sensitive compliance information. We are building something big — the world’s first smart trust center — so that customers can build trust and accelerate vendor risk assessment processes with their prospective and current customers.

With just over a year in business, we have 100+ customers, including LinkedIn, Instacart, Jamf, and Mindbody, using SafeBase to speed up their sale cycle by over 7 days and give back 50% of time to InfoSec teams.

We are a Y Combinator backed startup with funding from top tier Silicon Valley VCs. Our founding team comes with 10+ years of cybersecurity experience in the Israeli Defense Forces and two successful exits from prior companies.

Our team is curious, supportive, and innovative. We are a remote first company that prides ourselves on having a fun, engaging and collaborative work environment.

Join us today and be an early member of our rocketship!
