When our chief scientist created Bro at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1995, he never imagined it would be used worldwide more than 20 years later. For over 20 years the founders of Corelight have been building and improving the open source software, and now they've founded a company.
Corelight is a high-growth security company that emerged from the open source community of Zeek (formerly Bro), a powerful and widely-used network monitoring tool. Open source coding is part of our DNA: all of the company’s co-founders, and many of its key engineers, actively contribute to Zeek. We are looking for a full time Director of Community to serve, engage, and inspire the community we emerged from, as we grow and evolve.
As Director of Community, you will lead, coordinate, and manage our global community program, shaping community experience and infrastructure, bringing community needs and requirements into Corelight, and building growth and engagement. You will also help celebrate and amplify the contributions of the community to open source Zeek, identify themes and patterns inside the community, and promote enhancements to the open source project. Your experience as content expert, superb communicator, and humble facilitator will be key to your success.

We want you to learn new things in this role, and we encourage you to apply if your experience is close to what we’re looking for.
We also know that diversity of background and thought makes for better problem solving and more creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team.
We are an early-stage security startup based in downtown San Francisco and Columbus, OH. We secure some of the most sensitive and mission-critical networks in the world, and our rapidly-growing customer base includes eight of the Fortune 50. Based on the Bro Network Security Monitor, a beloved and widely used open-source framework, Corelight Sensors transform high-volume network traffic into ‘rocket fuel’ for security analytics and operations. Following in the footsteps of successful open-source security companies such as Sourcefire, Corelight's unfair market advantages include its founders: the inventor of Bro and its key open-source committers. Join Corelight, and help us make the world's networks safer.
