The Opportunity:
We are seeking an experienced Information Security Manager to lead and mature our team of highly skilled Business Security Partners (BSPs).

Through our partnerships, we ensure that security policies, projects, and controls are effectively implemented across the business. This role operates within very ambiguous boundaries and an ideal candidate would have experience in executing with and within sometimes loosely-defined environments.
We are looking for a leader who has managed teams with a global impact and understands the business and security implications of doing so. We are looking to find a new colleague who will be a strategic thinker, have strong stakeholder management abilities, advocate for their team, communicate clearly, and possess a deep understanding of security and business operations (preferably entertainment business).
This role is remote - and our teams operate within a hybrid model. There are opportunities to come into the office if you are local to the Los Angeles, Los Gatos, or New York City area.

  • Communication: Demonstrate effective communication (written and verbal) between the BSP team, external stakeholders, and Netflix Security leadership. Experience in understanding how and in what ways to communicate across individuals contributors to executives.
  • Operational Excellence: Develop mechanisms and workflows around accountability. Institute and implement accountability within the team and socialize support within the business and security leadership. Help the team and the business understand the BSP value proposition, therefore securing buy-in, support, or influencing outcomes. Leverage data (qualitative and quantitative) in internal team management and external stakeholder management.
  • Feedback and Growth: Have the ability to provide direct and timely feedback to team members, partners and leadership. Demonstrated ability to coach and grow talent to drive change and influence within the business. Develop and maintain strong signals and indicators about our business and security stakeholders, approaching this with honesty and transparency.

About You:

  • Inclusive Leadership: You have a proven track record of building, cultivating, and leading high-performing diverse teams. You are curious about how we work, why we work and look for ways to create the optimal environment for the team. You partner and maintain strong relationships with security, business, and product colleagues. You have experience managing teams and understand the nuances of operating and serving a business in different regions globally.
  • Strategic and Tactical Balance: You balance strategic initiatives with tactical execution and set this context for the team and stakeholders.
