VP, Security

Remote (US or Canada) /
Technology – Security /
Full Time Remote
Over 100,000 businesses and millions of people use 1Password to protect their most important information, and we believe those people – and the companies they work for – shouldn’t have to choose between security and productivity. We see security as a human challenge, rather than a technological one. It’s hard work, but our mission has always been to ease the tension between security and convenience and help people navigate the digital world without fear or friction. Human-centric security is part of our DNA, but human-centricity is also the backbone of our culture. We encourage big ideas and new ways of working that help us to make the online world a safer place for everyone.

We are looking to add a highly motivated VP, Security to lead our efforts in Security, compliance and privacy. The VP, Security will be the key contributor to the strategy and vision for the Security, Privacy and Compliance teams and will build the roadmap for the future of how we build security into all parts of the software development lifecycle.  One of our principles is that we cherish the privacy of our customers. The right candidate will have experience and deep respect for security and privacy practices.

The ideal candidate will have experience mentoring and developing a strong team and will be able to quickly establish credibility. They are a self-starter who is comfortable in a rapidly changing environment and takes a proactive and strategic approach to build solutions. They will have the ability to bridge short-term goals with longer-term strategies and communicate it to a wide audience.
