Additional Information

The Team
Our team is in charge of deep cloud security within PANW.
We have three principles we believe in:

  • Quality - no code enters our codebase without a unittest and no feature is added without an integration test. All tests run (and must pass) on every pull request. No code enters the codebase without a code review.
  • Simplicity - we create a design for every significant feature and we make sure the solution is simple and clear. If it is not, we invest more work to make it simple.
  • We don’t have code that we are afraid to refactor - any code can be refactored if needed. Once identified we change, test, and ship.

We’re trailblazers that dream big, take risks, and challenge
cybersecurity’s status quo. It’s simple: we can’t accomplish our mission
without diverse teams innovating,
