See yourself at Twilio

Join the team as our next Senior Manager of Cloud Security

Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we're on a journey to becoming a globally antiracist company that supports diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business. We employ thousands of Twilions worldwide, and we're looking for more builders, creators, and visionaries to help fuel our growth momentum.

About the job

As the Senior Manager of Cloud Security, you’ll lead our existing cloud security teams through short-term and long term roadmaps. While primarily in AWS, Twilio utilizes various public cloud providers to deliver its products. We need a senior leader to help develop our existing teams, leaders, and roadmaps so that we can continue to support our growing business.

This individual would be responsible for working with our key infrastructure partners within R&D, M&A, and IT to convert their cloud security painpoints into state of the art, left by default security controls. 

A little more about our security team:


In this role, you’ll:

  • Utilize excellent communication and interpersonal skills to develop strong and productive partnerships with our key stakeholders, especially R&D, M&A and IT, enabling our teams to regularly leverage these partnerships to address critical and systemic cloud infrastructure risks.

  • Grow a comprehensive cloud security program founded on the same engineering principles as our R&D counterparts. This program will span AWS primarily with growing footprints in other public clouds such as GCP and Azure. The program will have clear security priorities defined to articulate the biggest bang for our buck.

  • Support and develop our existing cloud security teams through high-quality career development plans, program values, program clarity, and individual coaching. This includes helping our teams maintain a healthy balance between strategic and tactical initiatives.

  • Become an expert at leveraging quantitative data and meaningful metrics to guide program decisions, educate stakeholders, measure program operations and overall health.

  • Continue to push security left through the fostering of a strong security culture. Every engineer should someday be as capable as our L1 engineers.

  • Scale our security programs through automation, software, tools, training, and initiatives vs being mostly dependent on scaling horizontally through large headcount asks.

  • Care deeply about creating teams that model psychological safety and inclusivity, where engineers can do their best work. Foster an inclusive environment, where all points of view are welcomed and encouraged. Your teams’ NPS of leadership will be high.

  • Manage a large portfolio of security program deliverables, track and report on budgets, timelines, dependencies, and conflicts.

  • Proven history of developing successful cloud security program spanning multiple AWS accounts

  • Experience developing partnerships with R&D leaders and/or IT to create and execute multi-year roadmaps

  • Comfortable with leveraging software tools/scripts to query data warehouses and other data repositories to pull and leverage security metrics
