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. 

The Information Security Partnerships team at BetterUp brings the human touch to enabling the business through security. Members of this team help bridge the gap between security and other business domains (such as sales, human resources, information technology, software engineering, and more) to keep everyone aligned on how to best grow the business while keeping risk in check. This team also runs our security training and awareness programs.

What you’ll do:

As the manager of this team you will set the strategic vision and work to bring the vision to life using your skills in hiring, mentorship, and empathetic leadership. You will set the tone for how security partnerships operate at BetterUp. Sometimes this will be hands-on as you build relationships across the business. Other times you will lead through your team by helping them build partnerships while they grow in their own career.

  • Experience as a people manager in the information security domain

  • Eager to contribute to the BetterUp mission
