About Trail of Bits

Trail of Bits helps secure the world’s most targeted organizations and products. We combine high-end security research with a real-world attacker mentality to reduce risk and fortify code.
As a cybersecurity research and consulting firm, we serve clients in the defense, tech, finance, and blockchain industries. We help with their most difficult security challenges by designing and building new technology, researching new techniques to advance the state of practice, and reviewing the security of the latest available technology products before they hit the market.
Our team consumes, produces, and presents research as a natural part of doing business. When we make new discoveries or developments, we strive to share our knowledge and release our tools as open source. It’s a practice that’s earned us industry accolades and helped contribute to our double-digit bottom-line growth.

Join our Summer Internship Program!

We’re working on funded research projects in software security, program analysis, compiler construction, and trusted computing. We provide expert consulting services when the alignment is right, and we provide in-depth and hands-on training when we feel it will make an impact.
If that sounds like something you’re interested in, we’re looking for interns to join our team virtually this Summer! We offer internships on the Assurance, Cryptography and Research teams.
At this stage, please know that we are collecting information from interested applicants with plans to start conversations in early 2023. Thank you for your patience as we build out the program. When the time comes to move forward with our hiring process, we will email you directly.
