WHAT WE DO MATTERS

We have big plans for continued global growth, and we’re looking for people who are creative, flexible and dedicated to helping us build something great – something that matters.

We give the power to every member of the team when we invite all developers, engineers and researchers to our own internal developer off site hackathon, where they compete to create the next great thing – a functional prototype, related to our technology, that makes our operations better.

Your ideas may become a reality – and even change the future of security.

Director of Program Management

San Jose | California | United States

Your Role:

We believe that building products should be both easy and fun.  This means the process whereby we create software has to be transparent for everyone and smooth as a silk with lots of handrails to keep us on track even when things get complex or when you’re brand new to Tenable. We see Program Management as fundamental to creating a great software development life cycle (SDLC) that unlocks the productivity and creativity of our entire product team. We care deeply about how we work and our program management team is responsible for defining, guiding and measuring our SDLC-- with key assist from our Director Agile Transformation, head of Engineering, head of PM and the rest of the usual suspects. When program management is done right, not only do the proverbial trains run on time, but they run faster and with a fully stocked champagne bar. Its essential to how we build products and we’re looking for a leader.

 

  • Oversee & continuously refine SDLC (e.g., via retrospectives, continuous improvement, etc.), working with all major stakeholders
  • Measure how we’re doing, from productivity to team happiness, from test coverage to in-field usage and support metrics-- use all of this to help us do better for our customers and partners
  • Define and drive plans for our most significant initiatives-- taking the entropy that naturally surrounds huge, complex efforts and driving it out into a game plan that has a high likelihood of success, tracking its execution through completion
  • Create and deliver weekly roadmaps
  • Own our tooling
  • Lead (and eventually grow) a small team of program managers

What you’ll need:

  • MS/BS in CS or related discipline
  • Minimum of 10 years of experience building software products and/or software
  • At least 5 years working in project management with at least 3 years in leadership positions at a Manager level or higher
  • Engaging leader capable of using the PgM function to drive alignment across an organization to achieve outstanding results
  • 10+ years of relevant experience in project management
  • Experience with Agile development methodologies in a commercial SAAS organization
  • Proven experience defining and leading product development programs
  • Shown ability to influence and lead cross-functional teams
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • A high degree of self-motivation and flexibility
  • 25% travel – domestic and international
And ideally:
  • Relevant professional experience in a technology/software/SAAS company
  • Prior experience with either cloud or on-premise enterprise network security products or software is a plus

We’re committed to promoting Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) at Tenable - through all equal employment opportunity laws and regulations at the international, federal, state and local levels.
