Not everyone working in technical fields can boast that the work they do protects and saves lives. But the person who lands this gig will be the foremost bulwark against security lapses that could interrupt treatments, wreak havoc with patient privacy, and even shut down an entire hospital. That’s why this leading med school needs someone with deep technical chops like yours, someone with life-and-death maturity and discipline, someone who’s always on the lookout for the latest tools and techniques, someone wide open to new and better approaches to security. Up for the challenge? Read on.
Just as the job title suggests, your primary function will be to design and implement a set of security solutions whose architecture is smart, impenetrable, fluid and flexible. You’ll be setting the security policy standards and establishing best practices and a code of conduct, and you’ll execute regulatory compliance assessments on a regular basis. You’ll oversee rigorous penetration testing across every conceivable point of entry into the institution: phones, hospital rooms, building access, cloud data. The trick of it, of course, will not be unfamiliar to someone of your experience: building security systems that allow for robust data-sharing and openness where appropriate, while still protecting the hell out of sensitive information. So, questions you’ll be asking yourself: How do we balance security and functionality? How can we bake security into the next generation of apps and features? How will we keep hackers out of pacemakers, or, Lord help us, brain implants? You’ll bring your varied and deep experience to bear in addressing all of these concerns and more.

You live for this stuff. You think about it, you read about it, you talk about it, and you’ve been working at it for many years, in a breadth of security areas: network security, OS security, application security, cloud security. Your expertise goes beyond Linux, beyond firewalls; your vision encompasses not just the individual layers but the entire onion. That deep experience means that you realize there isn’t only one way of doing something: You’ve got both the flexibility of mind and the extensive toolkit to be able to envision and execute creative solutions to match the circumstances. You’ve got the maturity, sobriety and gravitas to make wise and responsible decisions, but despite your seniority you remain operational and can help folks on the ground figure things out.
While experience at a medical institution would be smiled warmly upon, this employer is looking for someone who’s worked at a variety of companies, and especially someone who’s functioned as the center for security innovation at one or more of those places. Net Net If you’ve been taking on more and more prominent roles in security architecture and are ready for your next big challenge, this is a chance to deploy your talents at a complex company that’s doing deeply meaningful work and is well known as a very desirable employer.
