#### Description Tigera is the industry leader in Kubernetes security and observability, and is also the inventor and maintainer of open-source Calico. We help organizations of all sizes in various industries to secure, observe, and troubleshoot cloud-native applications in Kubernetes environments. Our newest offering, Calico Cloud, is a next-generation, Kubernetes-native cloud service that extends the declarative nature of Kubernetes to specify "security and observability as code," which ensures consistent enforcement of security policies and compliance, and provides observability and troubleshooting across multi-cluster, multi-cloud, and hybrid deployments. Our software powers over a million Kubernetes nodes across 166 countries, and all of the major public cloud providers use it for their own managed Kubernetes services. Tigera's solutions are used by some of the world's leading companies, including HanseMerkur, Merck, Mindbody, RealPage, L3Harris, Discover, AT&T, and ServiceNow. As our team grows, we are looking for colleagues who not only share our passion for this work and growing our company, but who will also strengthen our company values and help ensure that Tigera remains a great place to work.
