About BugHeist

Software code allows us to buy a gift for Mom or Dad on amazon.com in 7 seconds, watch our favorite “House of Cards” episode on Netflix or read Yelp reviews about a new restaurant.

When we can’t access the information we’re looking for on the internet within seconds, we are not happy.

This is where you come into the picture.

BugHeist wants you to identify the software (and hardware) bugs that delay downloads, freeze screens, create payloads that deliver malware to websites and generate other issues.

What’s in it for you?

  • Money if you join a BugHeist Sponsored Bug Hunt.

  • Experience to add to your résumé or portfolio.
