About The Position As a member of the Contrast Security team, you will join a group responsible for industry leading Application Security products. Our team includes engineers, designers, and product managers, all focused on making the Internet safer for everyone. We believe in agile practices to build our software, as well as continuously delivering features and improvements to our users. You are a person who is always pushing your teammates to do their best work and intolerant of anything else. Our team believes that a successful product is built by working with designers, product managers, and operators to understand the full cycle of software development. The role of the Manager of the Integration team involves a balance of day-to-day personnel management, as well managing development projects in a cross-functional manner. Development managers are not just managers, as they are expected to commit code, but at a different pace than contributing engineers. Our integrations developers build out our integrations with communications tools (Slack), platforms (Pivotal Cloud Foundry) security management services (Splunk), and even developer IDEs (IntelliJ, Eclipse and VS Code). You will have the opportunity to lead a group of very talented and motivated software engineers as we continue to integrate with everything. As Development Manager of the integration team, you have a few responsibilities, but the primary one is to ship product out the door. Your goal is to deliver results to the customer and market. To do this you need to make sure the development team is able to work as efficiently as possible and this means making sure they have clear goals, both short term and long term, and that nothing prevents them from doing their work. From the initial project scope to deploying the product out to customer sites, each step is your responsibility. You can, and should, delegate as much as you can but be ready to check that things are being done as you want and be ready to jump in if it is not. This position is US-based but can work remotely on a permanent basis if not located near our offices in Baltimore, MD or Los Altos, CA.
