What you'll do...


This may be your dream job- it is ours! We have an opening for a high-performing leader for our internal Red Team. The ideal candidate has either Red OR a deep Blue Team(defender) experience and understanding of multiple tech stacks that are commonly abused by adversaries.

As a Senior Director, you will lead a team of remote, geographically distributed Red Team members working on our private infrastructure and tooling with a level of autonomy and independence typically found at startups. You will also influence the world’s largest retail security posture by conducting simulated breaches of our businesses across five continents.

  • If you can chart a course from an initial access foothold to an objective, and finally egress
  • If you comprehend advanced phishing detections (reputation, categorization, sandboxes, EDR, etc.)
  • If you are calm under pressure and work well in real-time collaboration with teammates
  • If you want your job to get harder and the defender’s job to get easier
  • If you are permanently curious and never stop learning

You’ll make an impact by:

  • Discovering new gaps in our organization’s prevention & detection controls, and response processes
  • Executing scenarios and then working with stakeholders to make sure they can never happen again
  • Presenting ground truth on the readiness of our businesses to withstand a breach
  • Influencing senior and executive leadership’s security investment decisions

Benefits & Perks: 

Beyond competitive pay, you can receive incentive awards for your performance. Other great perks include 401(k) match, stock purchase plan, paid maternity and parental leave, PTO, multiple health plans, and much more.
