Senior Program Manager

| Greater Boston Area

Location: Boston, MA

Team: Information Security

Description:

We’re looking to add a Senior Program Manager to our Information Security team.

In this role, you’ll leverage your robust "tool box" of program management knowledge and strategies to build repeatable processes, ensure accountability across InfoSec and partner teams, and show us how to measure success.

You have experience navigating new environments, so you will be able to assess and improve our existing program independently. You have leadership skills, and will be capable of building out a program/project management team within InfoSec as we scale.

Day In The Life:

You meet with the owners of the vulnerability management program to guide them through the process of identifying new KPIs. The program owners struggle at first, but you ask the right questions help them figure out which metrics will make it possible to identify the health of that program at a glance and make quick, smart decisions about the program’s direction. You make a plan to automate the process of pulling these KPIs on a regular basis.

Next, you meet with the information security leadership team to ensure the next quarter’s roadmap is up-to-date. You notice that some of the projects they’ve prioritized don’t align with the biggest security risks on the risk register, so you lead them through updating the roadmap accordingly.

After lunch, you head down to the 4th floor barista bar for a quick sync-up with a Program Manager from another team. You swap strategies and leave with some new ideas to implement.

You spend the afternoon building a quarterly review deck. You built the template, and it provides information in a way that is concise, clear, and actionable. You ensure project and program owners have provided the appropriate updates, and you synthesize their input into a thoughtful overview of the program’s current state.

You leave the office early. You were really “in the zone” earlier that week and worked a little late finishing up a project. You’re delivering great work, and in return, your team gives you a ton of flexibility.
