McAfee Drives Cybersecurity User-Experience Forward
Without the support of our amazing sponsors, Fluxible wouldn’t be possible. As both longtime residents of Waterloo Region, and leaders in digital-security we were so pleased to have McAfee support this year's Fluxible Festival. With a mission to relentlessly protect all that matters through leading-edge cybersecurity, from workspace to home and everywhere in between, McAfee drives innovation and user-experience forward, operating under the guidance of five core values including: “putting the customer at the core,” and “innovating with speed and agility.”
McAfee's Waterloo office recently relocated to the newly renovated Factory Square Campus, where it continues to provide advanced security solutions to consumers, small and large businesses, enterprises and governments. The move into this expanded space echoes the company's commitment to the region and is one of the McAfee’s primary design and development offices, with 170 employees, including 13 UX designers, writers and researchers. Sara Cole, UXD Design Director at McAfee notes that “we purposely designed an open space office and filled with a variety of collaborative spaces meant to get people away from their desks and working together.”
As a sponsor of Fluxible, Cole feels McAfee's role is to support the Waterloo Region design community, collaborating and sharing their UX knowledge with the other like-minded folks. “We are putting users and design at the centre of everything we do. Our technology enables the world to fully realize the transformative power of the digital age, by protecting all that matters. We’re building a world-class UX team and we’re always looking for outstanding talent.”
Development opportunities, perks, and programs that make life better – both at work and at home – with a diverse and inclusive environment are key at McAfee. Employees find a family-like company culture where people really do look out for one another. Their executive leadership is accessible, approachable, and transparent. While the work focuses on keeping customers’ cyber information safe, for employees, McAfee is also serious about their commitment to fun with things like celebrations and family-first opportunities, office scooters, and the PAW Program which allows you to bring your dog to work.
