People Operations Associate
We’re looking for a People Operations Associate to help find, support, and develop members of the Aptible Team.
This is a unique opportunity to be a high-impact, early member of Aptible, while learning the skills necessary for a successful career in Business Operations and People Operations. Reporting directly to our VP of People Operations, you will be responsible for creating, implementing, and optimizing the foundational programs to build an effective, high-performing team and a culture where everyone feels empowered to do their best work.
It’s true: Software is eating the world, powered by the Internet. A growing wave of developers all over the world are using web-scale technology to build and deploy healthcare, fintech, banking, payments, IoT, blockchain, machine learning, and other B2B applications.
Security and compliance are mandatory from day one for these teams of developers, but many of them struggle. When their teams are small, they can’t afford to hire full-time for security or compliance. When they scale, they find that existing security and compliance management tools suck.
At Aptible, we make people-centered security products that help developer teams build security into their architecture and their organization’s culture. Today, we have two products: Enclave and Gridiron.
Enclave is a container orchestration platform built for developers that automates security best practices and controls needed for deploying and scaling Dockerized apps in regulated industries. Gridiron is like the missing QuickBooks + TurboTax for security management. It helps developers design and run security management programs that meet and exceed requirements like HIPAA, SOC 2, and ISO 27001. Customers use it to build trust with their own customers and partners, and prepare for certifications.
