We are looking for a program manager to drive and shape AMP’s growing security program. This position involves a mix of strategic and tactical program management which will be responsible for a portfolio of security activities involving both application and platform security. Team members are able to work with key internal and external partners to build and maintain a security roadmap that addresses AMP’s security obligations. These obligations include application security for AMP’s wide services portfolio including the iTunes Store, Apple Music, the App Store and more. They also include the operational security concerns of the systems and platforms running these applications. This is a hands-on role working with the engineering org, as well as site-reliability engineering, business teams, operational teams, marketing, analytics, and external vendors. You are the thread tying these disparate teams together to deliver end-to-end projects that improve our products globally. You will be involved in all aspects of the project life-cycle, whether it be helping develop functional requirements, getting into the detailed analysis, facilitating proofs-of-concept or QA, and tracking release management of multiple projects at once. You build positive relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and your team; you see around corners; and you deliver.
