What it’s like to work at Thorn

At Thorn, we combine the nimbleness of a startup with the mission and values of a non-profit. Our success is measured by how many children we’ve helped save, how many cases we’ve contributed to solving and how much harm we’ve prevented. Through focused and persistent effort, we can stop online child sexual abuse.
