    • Lead teams of Security Engineers to deliver great security infrastructure and develop the leaders of those teams
    • Collaborate with other Internal security engineering and compliance teams to build a single Security vision for Auth0. And, build strong relationships with external security teams and organizations.
    • Build processes, frameworks and metrics to improve delivery and measure your success
    • Hire a diverse team - fostering a collaborative and an inclusive environment
    • Develop a strong relationship with Auth0’s Product Engineering teams; influencing their roadmaps

    • Exposure to agile release processes and supporting tools and infrastructure
