  • Advise and collaborate with cross-functional teams (operations, network engineering, cybersecurity) on integrating security best practices into everyday operations.

  • Craft expert-level security documentation, including policies and procedures, tailored to the specific needs of the acquired businesses.

  • Partner with senior stakeholders across various businesses to gain buy-in and ensure program adoption.

What makes this role special?

  • Top-tier compensation and benefits: We offer a competitive compensation package with the flexibility of consulting work.


  • Minimum 5+ years of experience in security program architecture and implementation (consulting experience a plus).

  • Proven ability to advise and guide leadership teams on strategic security decisions.

  • Strong understanding of security best practices, frameworks, and compliance requirements.

  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, and presentation skills.

  • Ability to work independently, manage multiple projects, and thrive in a dynamic environment.

Ready to leverage your expertise and make a lasting impact? If you are a passionate and results-oriented security leader with a consulting mindset, this could be a great opportunity for you.
