About Splunk

We have a disruptive new vision to make machine data accessible, usable, and valuable to everyone. Our engineers are passionate about our products and our customers demand more of it. At Splunk, we're committed to our people, customers and having fun at work! Splunk is an industry leader in the "Data to Everything" platform and is well-positioned to extend the lead with our bold new vision.

About The Role

If you thrive on leading and scaling security teams to keep up with a rapidly growing business, and empowering development teams to build security into every product we ship, we want to talk to you. We have a rapidly growing portfolio of products and are simultaneously embarking on a journey to "Cloud First" delivery of all our services, so it is critical that we have effective processes to identify, fix, and prevent security defects in all our products and associated infrastructure.

We are looking for a Senior Manager to lead our Penetration Testing team tasked with raising the security bar across Splunk. The team's responsibilities include: penetration testing, red teaming and providing remediation guidance. This role presents the opportunity to build and grow a team of highly skilled penetration testers and red teamers who interact and collaborate with a large number of developers, architects, and product managers across the company. As the leader of the team, you are responsible for mentoring and developing the careers of each team member, and focusing the team's resources on the areas that best improve the company's security posture, decrease security risk, and protect our customers and their data.

You will be part of an organization that, beyond reviewing, testing, and hardening Splunk products, invests heavily in a broad culture of security across Splunk. Penetration Testing is complex and context-specific and, as such, requires every member of the organization to understand how security is achieved in their area. Splunk is a fast-growing, dynamic environment where priorities can shift quickly. In order to succeed, you should have the ability to ruthlessly prioritize, communicate with clarity, and be committed to empowering your team and the teams we support to carry out the mission collectively.
