We are looking for an expert project manager who thrives in a fast-paced environment, and is adept at turning ambiguity into action. We're looking for people who enjoy diving deep into the technology, with a consistent track record of shipping complex, cross- functional projects under demanding timelines. This is a hands-on position where you will be expected to drive all aspects of network and systems security design discussions, intrusion detection and mitigation efforts, incident response, documentation, testing, and working with partners in data centers, all with the expectation of high reliability and high availability. This is not a task-based job; you will be responsible for successful outcomes and delivery. Strong fundamentals are a requirement, but you have more. You take responsibility; you feel a personal stake in the product you ship; you communicate responsibilities and scope clearly; you have extraordinary attention to detail; you value integrity; you manage risk; you need to know how things work; you work for the success of the entire team; you thrive in uncertainty and strive to bring order to it; you have deep wisdom and judgement; you keep your eye on the ball; you build strong relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and the team. Are you ready for a challenge?
