In this role, you will lead the effort to define and shape security for VMware Cloud.

You will have ownership and autonomy to think strategically and make decision driving significant impact to the business.

Your key duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Discover and prioritize a broad set of security use cases and define requirements.

  • Launch new security features and products that protect and delight customers.

  • Collaborate with our engineering, SRE and architecture teams to deliver secure systems.

  • Improve code security in our software development lifecycle (Git/Concourse/Artifactory)

  • Improve efficiency of our SIEM processes and systems (Syslog/Cloud Trail/Splunk)

  • Improve implementation of SDDC security technologies (Firewall/VPN/IPS/WAF)

Key qualifications and requirements:

  • 5+ years as a product manager building and launching technical products, preferably in Cloud (IaaS/PaaS/SaaS) and/or security

  • Domain experience with security aspects of public cloud environments

Preferred skills:

  • Hands-on familiarity with agile infrastructure and public cloud services (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure)

  • Experience with compliance frameworks (e.g. NIST 800, SOC, ISO, HIPAA, PCI, FedRAMP)

Due to the Biden Administration issuing an Executive Order (EO) that effectively mandates COVID-19 vaccination for all U.S. based employees of federal contractors and subcontractors, all U.S. based VMware employees will be required to have their final vaccination dose (e.g., second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of J&J) by January 4, 2022. Specifically, this means that all U.S. based VMware employees will need to be fully vaccinated by January 18th, 2022, or by their first date of employment if after that date, subject to legally required accommodations.

This job may require the candidate to comply with travel restrictions and/or work from a facility that requires full vaccination prior to entry. Further, depending on various factors, including legal challenges to the Executive Order on Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, VMware may require employees to be fully vaccinated effective January 18, 2022.
