    Lead Security Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at BoardVantage in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Be warned - this may be called a Lead Security Engineer, but you will not be leading anyone. The company does not have a CISO, or anyone at the C level for promoting Information Security. Hence this role is the scapegoat for when it hits the fan - and it will at some point considering the platform and lack of attention to minimizing risk. There is no management role in this, though they are calling it a 'lead' and you could be mentoring some other folks - but no management role, or the salary that goes with it.

    So all the direct applications received the generic "thanks, but no" emails last week - and now the headhunter bodyshops are combing the online resumes looking for candidates. As if those in the InfoSec community do not talk with each other.

    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation was with the CTO . He offered me a pay package, which was very generous. The Director also had a discussion with me regarding the pay package. And we negotiated the amount. This was in accordance with the rest of the companies in menlo park. There was no HR at the time, so the CTO was kind enough to provide the compensation.
