    About the Security Engineering Team:

    We seek an experienced technical leader to build out a world-class security engineering program within our engineering organization. You will craft a mission and charter for a team that delivers critical engineering projects, while also serving as subject matter experts on security topics for our engineering organization of 80+ engineers. You will recruit, onboard, and mentor engineers focused on both application and infrastructure security as we "shift left" our security practice earlier in the software development lifecycle. This role has tremendous strategic impact for our engineering, product, and design (EPD) leadership team, and will have direct accountability for identifying and addressing key strategic initiatives.

    In this role, you can expect to:

    • Hire, build, and manage a team of security engineers working within the engineering organization.
    • Work closely with other engineering leaders and functional heads across the company to execute on strategic security initiatives.
    • Advise our software engineering teams on key security questions within their projects.
    • Advise engineering leadership on security risks and incorporate solutions into our roadmap.

    You are a good fit if you:

    • Have 3+ years experience as a software/security engineering leader (either as an engineering manager or a technical project lead on security-focused projects)
    • Value working with and mentoring junior team members
    • Have experience hiring a world-class, diverse, values-aligned team
    • Have strong communication and conflict resolution skills
    • Are values-oriented, and you share our company values
    • Have familiarity with our technical stack (we use Python/Django and Golang for our services, and AWS and Terraform to manage our underlying infrastructure)

    You'll have an edge if you:

    • Have experience at fast growth startups or product-led growth companies
    • Have experience in a remote-first environment
    • Have experience running a security engineering program at a pre- or post-IPO SaaS company

    Compensation and Benefits:

    • Salary: $188,000-$254,000
    • Equity Stake*
    • Benefits: In the US, dbt Labs offers unlimited vacation (and yes we use it!), 401k w/3% guaranteed contribution, excellent healthcare, paid parental leave and a home office stipend. For employees outside the United States, dbt Labs offers a competitive benefits package.
    • Equity or comparable benefits may be offered depending on the legal limitations

    What to expect in the hiring process (all video interviews via Zoom unless accommodations are needed):

    • Interview with a Talent Acquisition Partner
    • Interview with Hiring Manager
    • Four Team Interviews (1:1s) that cover the following:
    • Architecture: share a professional project and your understanding of the architecture
    • Technical Manager Skills: your experience & philosophy managing technical teams
    • Quality Team Interview: how you've collaborated with Quality teams
    • People Manager Skills: your experience & philosophy on managing people
    • Final interview with one of our Values Carriers

    Who we are

    At dbt Labs, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

    Specifically, we believe that:

    • Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
    • Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
    • Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software
    • Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source

    It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Today, there are 9,000 companies using dbt every week, 30,000 practitioners in the dbt Community Slack, and 1,800 companies paying for dbt Cloud. Our customers include JetBlue, Hubspot, Vodafone New Zealand, and Dunelm. dbt is synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry. We're backed by top investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, and Altimeter. We recently raised our series D: read the announcement here!
