Security Lead opening at cloud infrastructure startup

My client is a profitable, growing cloud infrastructure startup that’s looking to bring on board an experienced Security Lead. You’ll assume responsibility for the security program and roadmap, working hand-in-hand with the CTO.

The Opportunity

This is an opportunity to institutionalize security across the business, thoughtfully prioritizing your time and other resources across the company. We have a strong culture of taking security seriously, but we need someone to help us triage, enhance our defenses, and identify blind spots.

Our customers rely on us for mission-critical services and storing sensitive information, so we’re a high-profile target. We face the added challenge of running on Amazon, Google, and Microsoft clouds and dealing with multinational security and compliance concerns (e.g., EU Privacy Shield).

About You

You’re a security geek well-versed in appsec, intrusion detection, malware detection, vulnerability management, and data loss prevention.

You have the experience to help us figure out what we should be prioritizing. You stay on top of industry trends because you love it. You’d be excited to run a bug bounty program.

This is absolutely a hands-on, technical position, but our ideal candidate can also evangelize security best practices across the org.

Company Profile

Series B funded, profitable, and capital efficient, offering a unique combination of stability, agility, and opportunity. Veteran leadership team with about 30 employees. Located in San Francisco.
