About the Opportunity

At Afterpay, our security team uses the same agile team management principles and processes as our partners in product and technology.

Our Security Delivery Manager will serve as our agile coach and scrum master. They will run the agile ceremonies we use to prioritize and deliver work and to constantly improve our own delivery capabilities.

Though the team already uses agile principles, the Security Delivery Manager will help us to improve how we apply these principles. They will also own how we use tools like Jira to support our delivery.

As we grow past the point where the entire team can fit in one meeting room, the Security Delivery Manager role will be critical to our success. As such, we need someone for this role that is disciplined, self-organized, and great at managing stakeholders.

Most of all, it will require someone who is ready to help us build a great team culture and have a laugh along the way.

About you

Life on the rocketship is exciting! Our rapid growth means you will need to be enthusiastic, flexible, tolerant, and resilient. In addition, you’ll be:

  • Self-driven - We afford our team members a lot of autonomy. Our style is to agree on a set of goals and metrics upfront and to empower people to get their jobs done.
  • Disciplined - Delivering against our goals requires someone who is able to keep themselves honest and to continue to move forward regardless of what is happening around them
  • Experienced - You’ll need a track record of having driven program execution within technology, though not necessarily in information security. You’ll understand how agile software development teams operate and how to integrate into their processes. You’ll be able to speak enough nerd to relate to technology professionals.
