In this role, you will be managing all customer-facing aspects of our technical security function, including Product Security, and Infrastructure Security. You will also partner on Corporate Security and Compliance initiatives with our IT and Legal teams. You will work closely with cross-functional teams across the company to develop and implement security strategies, policies, and best practices to protect our platform and our customers. The ideal candidate is hands-on and able to offer technical solutions in real-time. You can confidently represent security best practices and risks, and articulate tradeoffs to different approaches. You are familiar with running teams at different scales and can adjust your approach as the team grows.

You will also oversee incident detection and response, customer-facing security and compliance programs, and our vulnerability management programs. You will lead your team, and the company at large, in maturing our security practices as we grow. This is a high-impact role, reporting directly to our CTO, requiring strategic planning and a deep understanding of cybersecurity.

What You Will Do

  • In partnership with executive management, you will define the staffing strategy for the security function and advocate for the appropriate level of headcount and budget to meet the company’s requirements and risks.

What You Will Bring to the Table

  • You have proven experience (at least 8 years) working in information security, cybersecurity, or a related role, with experience in Software-as-a-Service and Cloud-based software delivery domains.
  • You have experience leading customer-facing aspects of a security program for a company with a proven track record of supporting and partnering with software engineers and non-technical partners.
  • You have experience managing software engineers and/or security software engineers. Even better if you have experience managing software engineering managers, as that will help you scale in the role as we grow.
  • You have strong knowledge of cybersecurity principles, technologies, and best practices, including technologies like encryption, certificates, networking, and web technologies.
  • You have knowledge of international privacy and information security related regulations.
  • You have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to communicate complex security concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences.
