Reporting to the CISO, this role is based in our Seattle office but will have a global team, serving our various offices nationally and internationally. Directors are expected to operate with a high degree of independence, to grow and lead teams, own major business initiatives, and act as a key leadership layer inside the company, capable of taking strategy from the executive team, refining it, translating it into deliverables for their teams, and executing against it. We are looking for a true seasoned Director who has managed managers and individual contributors as direct reports and has experience growing teams.
