Who's Secure Code Warrior?

Secure Code Warrior is the developer-chosen solution for secure coding. Secure Code Warrior makes the world safer by making secure coding a positive and engaging experience for developers. We succeed with a human approach that uncovers the secure developer inside every coder, helping development teams ship quality code faster so they can focus on creating amazing, safe software for our world. We care about the impact insecure coding has on the world and are driven to make learning secure coding a positive experience, by proudly bringing our unique style of creativity, approachability and fun to this crusade. 

Our people are the heart of Secure Code Warrior. We’d be best described as an eclectic and enlightened bunch of people who provide a variety of voices and viewpoints. We pride ourselves on celebrating people for who they are and what they contribute. We are all life-long learners, endlessly curious, with a hunger and spark to grow our company to make a big impact in software safety. You won’t find us overdressed and uninspired (flip-flops are welcome) and we like to put a little fun and cheekiness into everything we do.

We're looking for a VP of Product to help us craft and execute our product strategy. 
You will have the opportunity to work closely with the founders and a collaborative product minded leadership team to build out the next product-led revenue stream, the product organisation and culture. 
As a member of SCW's senior leadership team team, you will report directly to the CEO and drive the Product Review Board (PRB), and you will use your leadership ability, product craft, critical thinking, creative problem-solving skills, and your drive to get things done. 

Provide day-to-day leadership and coaching to a team of 10 product managers, designers, product security and data analysts based in Australia and Europe, and ensure their strategic and tactical alignment among the team and with peers in Engineering.

You will have a massive impact on SCW's business and the teams that use our product every day.

What you will do?

  • Understand the company and product vision of the founders and build a strategy with tactical plans to support it.
  • Own the product roadmap and drive execution of themes, features, processes and initiatives to improve user engagement and experience.
  • Work across engineering and product teams to accelerate implementation through use of OKR’s and continuously improve processes that ensure a repeatable blueprint for effective delivery of work.
  • Provide leadership to cross-functional teams and direction to the enterprise in long-range strategy planning to address complex business issues.
  • Actively identify and invest in specific business opportunities where the product can enhance the value of the business.
  • Be a member of the leadership team, informing all major strategic decisions and helping shape the culture.
  • Collaborate with Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Customer Success, and Leadership to set the long-term vision of the product.
  • Evangelise the product both internally and externally, shepherding products through the development process, advocating to achieve the best outcomes.
  • What we're looking for?

  • Ideally 8+ years of relevant work experience in a leadership role at a high-growth tech startup.
  • Experience in Developer Tooling, Enterprise SaaS and/or Cyber Security fields is a plus.
  • You have a strong technical background, ideally engineering.
  • You are a natural leader who relishes the opportunity to build systems, celebrate successes and push your team members to the next level.
  • You are data-informed and possess a strong pedigree in customer & user research. You search for evidence to inform your decisions. You have strong quantitative and analytical abilities with a deep understanding of key metrics and how to think quantitatively about the impact of your decisions.
  • You have experience managing and mentoring product managers at all levels, from Junior to Principal.
  • You ruthlessly prioritise. You balance quick wins with long-term investments appropriately.
  • Cross-functional communication comes naturally to you in solving problems and addressing roadblocks. You have a strong orientation toward problem-solving and decision-making in an open and collaborative environment and toward making decisions that will benefit our customers and the organisation as a whole.
  • You find helping people rewarding. You draw energy from solving problems for others. When someone comes to you with a problem, you drop what you are doing to figure out how to fix it.
