Director, Product Management-New York
At White Ops, we’re all hackers. This doesn’t mean you have to hold a key to the internet (although one of our founders does!), but it does require approaching problems in unconventional ways.

By reducing the incentives for crime, we are making the internet a better place. Our mighty team of humans have several things in common:
We are hackers.

We think big and move fast.
We practice humility.
We “pwn it”.
