Duo Security, now a part of Cisco, is the leading provider of Trusted Access security and multi-factor authentication delivered through the cloud.

Duo's mission is to make security

simple for everyone. We were born from a hacker ethos and a desire to

make the Internet a secure place. We believe in empowering people to

follow their passions inside and outside of the office and enable every

employee to bring their whole self to work.

Our team is our secret weapon. We run the spectrum from artists to

analysts, low-key to high energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to solve what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge — transforming the security

effective, trustworthy, and enduring. And that's why we are the most

loved and trusted company in security.

As our Product Design team continues to grow in size and influence, our design research needs grow as well. Our team wants to identify and understand the future of security

and what that means for our customers. All of our project work begins

design-driven product development. Design Research is highly regarded at

Duo, and we can't hire fast enough to keep up with the internal demand for our team's help!
