GitHub is seeking a highly experienced and detailed-oriented Individual Contributor to help build out the GRC function within a young and rapidly growing organization. GitHub is committed to doing right by our customers. Developing a highly effective control environment and right sized compliance solutions are integral to this commitment.
Are you prone to fits of root cause analysis? Do you find yourself viewing the world through the lenses of primary and compensating controls? Do you create flowcharts to help your friends and family understand exactly how Thanksgiving dinner should come together and who's bringing what side dish? When trying to explain ideas over dinner, do you find yourself looking for post-it notes and a whiteboard? Can you spot over-engineered controls from a mile away? Do you suffer from compulsive list making? Maybe have a strong forest-from-trees project management perspective, and masterful "Way With the Project Plan".
Have you already answered the question "Why are we here?" with the GRC Truth, "Because Customers."
If so, you might be the person we are looking for.
As part of the team reporting into the Director of Security-GRC, you will work closely with multiple groups including infrastructure operations, legal, finance, HR, sales, and software engineering to develop sound process and implement necessary controls to meet customer needs, satisfy external audit requirements, and address internal business objectives.
This is an excellent opportunity for a strong Individual Contributor to have a hand in elevating compliance and security as business and sales enabler, and to integrate a deep understanding of product and business into the compliance space. This is a team effort, and so bringing your team members, leadership and customers along for the ride is integral to your success. Central to the team's culture is that of inclusion, transparency and team work - we lift each other up to be successful!
This role is a great opportunity for someone considering a career path change, and to learn new ways to leverage your mid-career experience in a new discipline. Software operations, QA, security ops, logistics, software program and project management skills and experience - come see if this role is a fit for you!
A large focus of this position will support:
Our ideal candidate takes an extremely pragmatic approach to GRC, functions as part of a growing team, and is able to balance the needs of a very dynamic engineering culture with that of protecting the company and customer data.
This job is U.S. based and open nation wide, however, semi-frequent travel (<15%) to our San Francisco, CA headquarters, will be necessary for a remote worker.
