Building technology for defence and national security

Rebellion Defense’s mission is to help the US and its partners outpace tomorrow’s adversary. By bringing together private sector technologists with veterans and national security experts who deeply understand the mission

Pain points

The Challenge

In response to Rebellion Defense’s strategic expansion to London, the imperative was clear: swiftly assemble a team of five highly skilled senior software engineers, all possessing the requisite security clearance. The timeline for this was set at three months. Entrusted with this challenge, techruiter. undertook the task with precision and determination.

Scarce Talent Pool

A significant hurdle was identfying top talent in London, as Rebellion Defense did not yet have an established brand in the UK.

Security Clearance

techruiter. not only needed to assemble a team of five high skilled senior software engineers, they also needed to possess the requisite security clearance.


Rebellion Defense wanted to replicate the collaborative and cohesive atmosphere of their US workplace.


Rebellion Defense required a team to be assembled within three months, meaning techruiter. had to work round the clock to find five skilled candidates.
