Security Careers

Eclipse Security is a modern security company built by law enforcement and positioned for the future. Our clients rely on us to deliver — day in and day out. That’s why we hire and retain only the best.

There are a lot of security companies out there. Many of them overpromise and underdeliver. Others think they’re providing value to their clients by over-delivering, not acknowledging or admitting that what they’re really doing is wasting a lot of their clients’ time and money.

Eclipse Security is different. We deliver what we promise, and we deliver precisely those security solutions designed and implemented to provide our customers with what they need to protect themselves, their properties, and their events.

We wouldn’t be able to do that without the commitment and dedication of our highly trained and highly skilled team members.

And we’re looking for more.
