Security Engineering Manager

Toronto (Remote)


MPA Recruitment has been retained by a leading Digital Health organisation to recruit a Security Engineering Manager to join their team.

You will be joining an organisation that has grown significantly in recent years to become a leader within the Digital Health sector by bringing much-needed innovation to the stagnant health care industry. Their mission is to help people live healthier, happier lives every day.

Our client’s security engineering teams are responsible for scaling security in the development lifecycle and managing security incident management. They believe in security by design and follow a paved road philosophy by building or buying tools that we can integrate into their platform to ultimately make it easier for their engineers to do the right thing. Security is everyone’s responsibility, but security engineering is how they make it possible for engineers to ship high quality code to production several times per day with security baked in.

We are seeking a Security Engineering Manager to help them build and grow their security engineering teams. You’ll be accountable for your team’s success. Whether it is coaching team members on a one-on-one basis or driving the team to meet delivery goals. To thrive in this role, you are someone who communicates proactively, enjoys collaboration, and are able to balance technical trade-offs with delivering customer value quickly and iteratively.


In this role, you will:

·       Will work closely with the product, data and platform teams to support their needs from a security enabler perspective

·       Organize team capacity to be available to support other engineering teams with security rituals such as threat modeling, risk assessments and security reviews

·       Manage the relationship with 3rd party penetration testers so that significant changes can be tested within project timelines

·       Be active in Slack and lunch’n’learns to promote security awareness through education and evangelism

·       Manage and improve our clients vulnerability management program aiming to keep within SLA to remediate issues in our product and platform

·       Take part in the security incident on-call rotation and ensure that our security incident management process continues to perform with high quality investigation and resolution

·       Review 3rd party vendors that will be leveraged as part of the product or platform

·       Plan, deliver and integrate security capabilities that empower our product, data and platform engineers to ship with security by design

·       Manage the growth and development of your team, e.g. regular 1:1s with team members, setting objectives, tracking career growth

·       Identify headcount needs for the team, and drive planning and recruiting to fill these needs

·       Maintain security controls for SOC2 Type 2 compliance and take part in the evidence and audit phases


About You:

·       You have 2+ years of experience managing security engineers

·       You have 5+ years of experience in a security engineering domain such as application/platform security, or incident management

·       You have experience using scrum rituals to organize work for a team

·       You have experience with technologies such as Kubernetes and Google Cloud Platform (or similar)

·       You are comfortable planning and executing projects from idea to completion

·       You understand how to plan, build, test, and maintain complex software applications

·       You are focused on results, including communicating and solving problems as they arrive

·       Experience securing PHI is a strong plus



You will receive a very competitive salary along with employee stock options and unlimited paid time off.
