Eden Data’s DNA

At EdenData, we’re in the business of giving peace of mind to our clients by bringing order to chaos for security and compliance. When startups know that their data is safe, they can stop worrying about security and start changing the world.

Our goal is to build next-generation security, compliance, and privacy for innovative startups by disrupting traditional consulting models and providing the best services out there.

  • Completely remote.
  • We have a simple performance model while requiring some content contribution. Internal blog posts, etc.
  • We invest in the health and well-being of our employees.
  • When we work with clients that have exciting offerings, we offer some of our customer products to our employees at no charge.
  • We have a very unique compensation structure. In addition to offering competitive salaries, we offer health, dental, and vision.
  • We have an “above and beyond” model, where employees can exceed their salary. If you help us bring in business, or create new lines of business, we want you to reap the benefits.

  1. You’re not passionate about security, compliance, and data privacy.
  2. You want a ton of structure and guidance, and you tend to fold under pressure.
  3. You don’t want to be a thought leader in any capacity. Our employees are leading security for innovative companies worldwide, and you need to have an interest in becoming a trusted advisor to the movers and shakers of tomorrow.
