Technologies & IKARUS – “A Love story”

At IKARUS we are working with a variety of new and exciting technologies. Focusing on speed and efficiency, our end products are developed in C++, while backend software is using a variety of languages, with the main tendency towards Python. To keep up with new attack patterns and malware, IKARUS reevaluates constantly the used technologies, the aim is to be one step ahead of attackers and to keep clients safe. As the industry requires the ability to respond immediately, all this is achieved by implementing mostly home-brewed algorithms, which only use the generic tools like MSSQL databases. We are open to employ modern frameworks for our tasks, let it be something very technical, like sandboxing, or something more abstract, as virus classification.


Beside the classic winter and summer festivities, we offer regular team events for our colleagues, such as: curling, company dinners, team breakfast, LAN parties, hackathons and many more.

Let’s be better together!

We offer our employees trainings to improve their skills, the possibility to create new services, build new stakeholder groups (work with students, meetups, cooperation with different companies). The limit is set by your own motivation!


For IKARUS it is important to offer a stable and productive working environment. So, we have NO All-In-contracts and we offer flexible working hours!
