PhishLabs Expanding Into New HQ Building


Cybersecurity Firm Creating 45 Jobs At New Corporate Office

Phishlabs, a leading provider of cybersecurity services, is expanding its existing operations in Charleston County. To accommodate its continued growth, the company is expecting to create 45 new jobs over the next three years.

Founded in 2008, PhishLabs fights back against phishing attacks – the primary source of data breaches and online fraud. PhishLabs combines technology, human expertise and cyber threat intelligence to protect against these attacks. The company's clients include top financial, technology, healthcare, retail and insurance companies. Recognized by Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™ and Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the U.S., PhishLabs was also named one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in South Carolina by the S.C. Chamber of Commerce.

To expand, the company will be moving its corporate headquarters operations into a new, 25,000-square-foot facility at the Pacific Box and Crate development, located at 1501 King Street in Charleston, S.C. The facility will feature open green space, a coffee shop, a yoga studio and other work amenities.

PhishLabs has experienced employee growth of more than 170 percent in the past two years, and initial hiring for the new positions has already begun. Interested applicants should visit the company's careers page online.
