From developing cutting-edge technology and products to collaborating with exceptional employees, customers, partners and serving our communities, you have an opportunity to make a difference and be successful.


The Challenge

Do you believe infosec is not just a buzz word? Do you love working with engineering teams to ship product with security and style? Are you great at providing security guidance and driving critical projects that enhances product development infrastructure and operations? Are you also always telling whomever will listen, “Surely, there must be a better way?” We are looking for you! This job blends technical acumen, technical evangelism, and business development and requires timely execution with the highest degrees of security, performance, availability, and reliability. Additionally, it requires leadership abilities to strengthen our ecosystem during planning, development, and deployment of new products and how we deliver them securely and keep them credible for customers.


The Technical Program Manager is the hub that sits at the center of Engineering, DevOps, ITSec/OpsSec, and Executive Leadership to ensure that we have delivered comprehensive, end-to-end security services as well as a modern, scalable governance and metrics platform for the company. You will provide secure software development lifecycle support, and will be the Security Ninja that provides guidance and expertise in implementing secure architectures and remediating vulnerabilities.


Apart from your day to day activities, you will enjoy working with industry partners, ISVs, Cloud Hosting Providers, and Hardware partners who build and deploy security and anti-malware services and products in order to evolve and harden our supply chain pipeline. You will also join a team focused on SecDevOps aiming to provide security automation at the speed of DevOps in an ever-tightening release cadence.

  • Jedi Mind Tricks – Influence across multiple responsibility areas. Work cross org boundaries to agree and execute on a common set of security goals.
