Sysdig was a remote-friendly company before Covid. Strong communication has been prioritized since Sysdig’s founding in 2013, along with transparency, which starts at the top. Sysdig’s monthly all-hands meetings are no holds barred opportunities for employees to ask questions and for every employee to align. Sysdig has an open door policy and skip-level meetings are common practice. Sysdig hosts a yearly internal hackathon, with more than 70% company-wide participation where employees around the org work together. When it comes to the day-to-day, Sysdig heavily relies on Slack and Zoom, but email is also important. In-person meetings are slowly returning to the norm, with teams starting to travel again; however, Sysdig offers most positions remote, should someone choose that. The exec team always meets quarterly for planning. This sets the example for the company to do the same, working cross-functionally.
With the rapid adoption of cloud, security is changing, old tools do not work. We’re on the brink of a massive market change and Sysdig was one of the first companies to tackle the modern security problem, focusing on and becoming the standard for runtime security. Working at a cutting-edge company like Sysdig is rewarding and exciting for employees. Chances are, between your bank, credit card, or health insurance company, at least one of them uses Sysdig. With more than 700 customers, many being the largest organizations in the world, Sysdiggers go to work every day knowing they’re helping to keep the bad guys out.
We do annual engagement surveys combined with regular pulse surveys on specific topics. Additionally, we use Slido during the monthly all-hands calls and a dedicated Slack channel for employees to ask questions (anonymous is an option) to our executive staff.
We support employee development with training and covering costs for courses. We have also brought in instructors for in-house training, such as management 101 essentials. Additionally, we are working on a full career development framework so employees clearly understand their current level and what they’d need to achieve in order to move to the next level. Every manager has at least two monthly 1:1 meetings with reports, in which time mentorship is strongly encouraged. We also go through a goal-setting program each year, which includes both professional, personal, and position goals.
Sysdig’s values are what make Sysdig the company what it is and inspires and guides the team every day. They drive the culture, strategy, and vision of the company.

Our monthly wellness allowance is loved by employees as a way to offset things like cell phone/internet at home, getting a massage, a house cleaner or taking family out to dinner. We also provide 10 “global wellness holidays” throughout the year (ontop of our unlimited PTO) when the entire company takes the day off to focus on themselves and/or their families. On top of that, Sysdig offers excellent health benefits, including fertility assistance and unlimited mental health support.
