PURPOSE:

The Predictive Index is a technology company and the leader in talent optimization. We are also an award-winning best place to work (Inc., Glassdoor, Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe).

Our mission is “Better work, better world," and we take great pride in PI’s power to supercharge workplace relationships and culture to achieve the unthinkable. We’re our own best case study! You’ll be working toward a mission that inspires you, and you’ll be surrounded by fun, smart, driven people day in and day out.

Come discover how we empower our clients to solve their biggest challenges and make their business dreams come true.


POSITION

We’re looking for an entrepreneurial senior manager to lead PI’s Security Engineering team. You will be in charge of setting the company’s strategic direction for security, data privacy, and policy, and will report directly to the VP of Engineering. You will not only manage the team, but you will have the opportunity to build it as you see fit and hire the team members best suited to accomplish the mission.

This role requires a significant amount of autonomy to create and drive the roadmap so maintaining strong relationships with leaders in Engineering and Legal is paramount. We’re looking for someone with a proven track record of leadership in the security and privacy space on a fast growing cloud platform. We are in the early design stages of rebuilding our core Talent Optimization platform so this is a great opportunity to influence that design with the latest security and privacy practices, enabling us to scale with massive growth across the US and globally. 


YOUR DAY-TO-DAY:

  • Understand the landscape of cloud based security, gaps in our system, and a path to excellence
  • Work with key stakeholders across Engineering, Product, and Legal to define and execute the roadmap while maintaining a 2-year vision
  • Hire, lead, manage, and coach a team of engineers to improve their skills and support them in achieving their career goals
  • Act as primary liaison with our security consultants to identify and address vulnerabilities
  • Partner closely with legal team and external counsel to comply with all existing and upcoming data privacy laws, including GDPR and CCPA
  • Lead security reviews, penetration tests, risk analysis, threat modeling, and vulnerability tests
  • Enhance the incidence response plan and define the protocol for support escalations
  • Primary technology stack includes .Net backend and API layer with Angular and Node.js frontend, hosted in Azure Cloud


SHOULD YOU APPLY?

If you’ve got all the below skills, drop what you’re doing right now and reach out. If you’ve got some of these skills, we still want to hear from you!

  • Strong track record of defining a security strategy and executing it in a fast paced and high growth environment
  • Expert understanding of privacy policy and how to implement it successfully as a legacy platform is redesigned
  • Change agent willing to experiment, learn, and pivot by making data driven decisions
  • Ability to build relationships across the company, especially with your key stakeholders in Engineering, Product, and Legal
  • Strong career coach and advocate for ensuring everyone on the team is happy, engaged, and challenged

An Insider's view of The Predictive Index

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Employees have flexibility in where and how they work. I feel empowered to build a work-life model that reflects the needs of my life situation and still achieve maximum productivity. When my husband was ill, I was able to rearrange my schedule to care for him. PI offered me the flexibility to work at home so that I could balance family and career.

Localization Program Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I'd say a good third of a "typical" day is spent meeting with people to make sure our team is building the right stuff and in the right way. Another sixth my day is spent interviewing or thinking about hiring and onboarding since we’re growing so fast. The last half of my day is hopefully spent programming! Building cool stuff is my favorite!

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Career growth is at the center of this company. My manager appreciates when I have career conversations with him and proactively schedules a development meeting on a quarterly basis. We’re also growing quickly which is naturally creating opportunities for growth. Want proof? We’ve had 40 promotions in the last two years while having 115 employees!

Alex

Team Lead, Account Executives

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s vibrant and full of energy with animated discussions every direction you turn. It may sound weird, but it feels like there is knowledge in the air you breathe. You learn something new every day just by interacting with the talented people you work with.
