Do you want to change the world? We do, too. 
SunPower is changing the way our world is powered every day with a passionate and driven team of more than 3,660 full-time employees in North America and the Philippines. SunPower provides world-class solar solutions to residential customers across the U.S. with a commitment to a superior customer experience. We welcome forward thinkers, freedom chasers and all those demanding better, cleaner energy to join us.

Summary of Role:
Come protect SunPower customers and change the way the world is powered!  SunPower is looking for an experienced security testing leader to validate that our cutting-edge energy products and our infrastructure meet our customer's security and privacy needs.  In this role, you will be responsible for building and managing a team of penetration testers who will test SunPower’s products, services, and infrastructure to ensure they continue to meet our high-security standards.  You will also be responsible for setting the strategic direction for our security testing program.  A passion for renewable energy is a plus (if not, we’ll inspire you).
Security leaders at SunPower have a demonstrated ability to make a significant security impact through strong communications, prioritization, and partnerships with engineering leaders.  We nurture a strong security culture and focus on scaling our security program as SunPower grows rapidly.  We invest in our team with particular attention to high standards, career growth for our team members, maintaining an inclusive environment, and building a diverse team.  Finally, we are looking for a leader who knows how to build a sustainable organization: you will have our support to maintain a healthy balance between your work and your personal life, and model that for your team.  
Why SunPower?  Whether you like interesting security, technology, renewable energy, or working with smart, fun people, we have you covered.  We have one of the largest AWS IoT (Internet of Things) deployments and we’re building with cutting-edge cloud products such as AWS Lambda.  We are creating innovative renewable energy solutions such as virtual power plants and bi-directional electric vehicle charging for whole-home backup power.  As a security team, we pride ourselves on being very engaged with other SunPower builders, while holding high standards.  Because that’s just more fun.
