job description

Are you a Technical Program Manager ready to start a new contracting (12months) challenge?

In this role you will coordinate initiatives with multiple stakeholders, set expectations for deliverables with many different teams, keep track of success of parallel efforts, identify key roadblocks, and work with the team members involved to keep things moving. This is a fairly hands-on role that requires engineering and security knowledge as well as the ability to take a deep dive into different domains in a self-sufficient manner.


  • Scope ambiguous projects, help set priorities, and enable data-driven decisions.

  • Understand the end-to-end solution and implementation path, and execute large security projects.

  • Coordinate different security and product teams, set clear expectations about responsibilities, communicate with stakeholders, and measure success.

  • Partner with cross-functional engineering teams in order to provide technical direction and influence technical design.

  • Help push fundamental shifts towards more robust security models for the organization.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, or a related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.

  • Extensive knowledge in software engineering (and related processes).

  • At least 3 years experience in program/project management.

  • Experience working with teams and other cross-functional stakeholders.

  • Experience in an Engineering or Technical role, ideally delivering privacy and/or security solutions.  

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience in web application security or other areas of product security (e.g. Android/iOS application security, applied cryptography, memory corruption vulnerabilities and mitigations), and/or experience with incident response.

  • Experience in leading security risk mitigation, technical risk assessment, and integration projects, building key security engineering principles into non-standard infrastructure.
