Application Security Director
Two Barrels is hiring an Application Security Director to build, lead and develop our Security team. You will be a traditional company employee. This is a full-time 40 hours/week position with company benefits.
As a “Director,” you will be responsible for overseeing security as well as actually doing the work of a security engineer as we grow this team. Ultimately, if you are solely looking for the prestige of being a “Director,” this probably isn’t the right place for you. We are not looking for a figurehead to fill this seat; we want someone who is going to get their hands dirty and do the work. But because your title will be “Application Security Director,” you will need to be able to push and grow the team. You have been there and done that in the security world, help some people out!
You like being hands-on and doing the actual work, but you also like the tactical part of this and looking at things from a higher level. You are a professional and don’t laugh at job titles like “Penetration Tester” even though it’s funny. More importantly, you know what someone in that role is doing, and you can do some of it yourself if not all of it. Your role is technical, but you’re also a leader, so you’re a technical leader. We have Operations Managers who aren’t technical, so we need you to be technical… so you’re a technical leader of technical people who do technical things.
This is a remote or work-wherever-you-want position. Of course, we’d prefer you be around Spokane, Salt Lake, or Austin to have a hub based out of one of our three main offices, but we’re open to good talent anywhere in the US.

You want to educate people, including developers and customer service reps, about how to avoid security problems.
