Anvil was formed by industry veterans.  As we have grown, we have maintained a few basic principles: everyone is an owner, be professional, do good work, make whatever we touch more secure. It seems pretty simple, but we believe a professional consultancy that understands the role of security in a modern world and maintains high standards for quality and professionalism is novel for our industry.  We work with a lot of large, well known tech firms and some smaller firms with interesting technology challenges.   We work from the low level (hardware) through more procedural (software development lifecycle) work.  To be considered, please send your resume as text in the body of an email message to careers@anvilventures.com
