Beware: Please Protect Yourself from Recruitment Fraud

SmartBug has recently learned of a recruitment scam in which job seekers receive communications offering interviews or employment from people falsely claiming to work at or represent SmartBug. All job opportunities at SmartBug start with our Careers Page, and we are not involved with these fraudulent emails.

Although SmartBug is a fully remote company, we never offer employment to remote candidates before conducting a face-to-face video interview over Google Meet or Zoom. We never ask candidates to conduct interviews over secure messaging platforms likes WIRE. Additionally, no new SmartBug hire is ever asked to purchase major equipment with their own money. 

Please visit our team page to see who you are interviewing with and to confirm you are speaking with an actual employee. 

If you receive an email offering a job or an interview that does not come from an “@smartbugmedia.com” email address—or any email supposedly from SmartBug that seems somehow suspicious—disregard the email. Never provide personal or financial information to the sender, and don’t click on any links or attachments included in these emails, which may contain viruses or malware.

If possible, to help us get to the bottom of this and stop the scammers, please reach out to legal@smartbugmedia.com.
