What Betterup is looking for in applicants

Let’s face it, a company whose mission is human transformation better have some fresh thinking about the employer/employee relationship.

We do. We can’t cram it all in here, but you’ll start noticing it from the first interview.

Even our candidate experience is different. And when you get an offer from us (and accept it), you get way more than a paycheck. You get a personal BetterUp Coach, a development plan, a trained and coached manager, the most amazing team you’ve ever met (yes, each with their own personal BetterUp Coach), and most importantly, work that matters.

This makes for a remarkably focused and fulfilling work experience. Frankly, it’s not for everyone. But for people with fire in their belly, it’s a game-changing, career-defining, soul-lifting move.

Join us and we promise you the most intense and fulfilling years of your career, doing life-changing work in a fun, inventive, soulful culture.

If that sounds exciting—and the job description below feels like a fit—we really should start talking.

What you’ll do:

The Information Security Insights & Automation team at BetterUp combines risk information with a detailed asset inventory to inform our security posture and gaps. We then use this view to prioritize security work and ensure we are meeting our compliance and regulatory requirements. Where possible, we also develop automation to automatically address security gaps such as misconfigurations.

Members of this team leverage skills in software engineering and data science in their daily work. Equally important, they also have the grit needed to operate in an environment that is always changing and often not fully defined. We are open to buying or building tools as needed to accomplish our goals in a way that will scale with our rapidly growing business.

If you have some or all of the following, please apply:

  • Experience bringing order to the chaos of ingesting data from a wide variety of systems.
  • Experience writing software for analysis and automation problems.
  • Understanding information security risk measurement, ideally both qualitative and quantitative.
  • Exceptional grit and a willingness to work in a fast-paced startup setting.
  • Eager to contribute to the BetterUp mission.

We know that the best candidates often come from non-traditional backgrounds. If you are excited about this opportunity and feel that it could be a good fit, we’d encourage you to apply regardless of how many boxes you check from the above list. We’d love to get to know you before making a decision!
