Who we are

FireTail was founded in 2022 by a team of experienced cloud security professionals with the goal of bringing a complete end to end solution for API security to the market. This led to the development of FireTail's hybrid approach to API security - inline API call inspection and blocking, coupled with cloud-based security posture management, detection and response and centralized API audit.

FireTail is a remote first organisation with employees currently based across Ireland, Finland and in the US.

As we continue to grow the team we are now seeking a Python Developer to be based in the Republic of Ireland or Finland, on a remote basis.
