Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, today announced that it has earned designation as one of the UK’s ‘Great Places to Work’ 2020.

Great Place to Work UK is a global authority on workplace culture. Using validated employee feedback gathered with Great Place to Work’s rigorous, data-driven methodology, the certification confirms that the majority of employees have a consistently positive experience at Darktrace.

As such, the company will appear on an official list of the UK’s Great Workplaces 2020-2021, to be published in The Sunday Telegraph and The Guardian. Previous listees include tech giants Salesforce and Deloitte.

With a workforce compromised of 40% women, the certification also cements Darktrace a place on the list of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women, to be published in Elle Magazine in July 2020.

When asked what makes Darktrace a great place to work, one junior employee commented: “[Working at Darktrace,] you really feel a part of the innovative impact that our product is having on the cyber security landscape. You work with some of the brightest and most brilliant people in tech, who always find solutions to great problems.”
