About this role

We’re looking for a Network Security Solution/Product Manager to support the delivery of innovative network cybersecurity solutions based on threat, data, and design thinking that keep Capital One at the forefront of the market. We are a technology-oriented company delivering financial products to market through modern technology and constant innovation at a massive scale.  Part of that innovation is leveraging technology to deliver the best cybersecurity solutions for the business.   

This is truly a role where you could make it your own and you will be working in a Global remit. The team has doubled in size this year and next year's growth plans are just ambitious. If you have built and managed teams then this is exactly the opportunity for you.

Being a Director level professional you will be able to seamlessly switch from executive-level risk conversations to diving deep into controls and technology to driving high level, strategic discussions around roadmaps and security solutions.

If you are naturally curious and stay on top of emerging trends and threats. You thrive in working in a fast paced, technologically forward leaning environment and are not afraid to push the boundaries of security capabilities then you are just the person we are looking for!

What you’ll do

  • Develop and communicate a risk-based and data-driven strategy and outcome-driven roadmap for enterprise security services and solutions, in partnership with engineering and operations partners, customers, and other stakeholders
  • Analyse and select alternatives based on threat, risk, desirability, feasibility, and viability
  • Advise executive decision makers based on business and technology risk grounded in threat
  • Maintain technical and risk credibility with your own team and with partners across the enterprise 
  • Maintain close ties to developers across the company, ensuring the services we create meet their needs as products evolve
  • Iterate quickly and see the products through to production and scale
  • Establish product value propositions, metrics, and key indicators 
  • Recruit, motivate, mentor, and develop talent to be their best

What we’re looking for

  • You’ll have a solid background in network security with proven experience translating strategy and analysis into product/service requirements
  • You have experience managing multiple high-visibility and high-impact enterprise cybersecurity projects with cross-functional teams whilst delivering excellent results including planning, development and management of technical requirements, design, testing and deployment of security solutions
  • You are skilled at fostering collaborative, open and trusted working relationships with the business and external partners
  • You can demonstrate clear and effective communication skills and ability to interact effectively at all levels of an organisation, and to influence senior management and executives (including translating technical information based on specific audiences)
  • Passion and expertise in one or more of the following areas: cloud security, network security, product security, network exploitation, vulnerability management, data protection, DLP, host & endpoint security, detection & mitigation, or  threat intelligence & investigations.

Where and how you'll work

This is a permanent position and will be based in the London office, but report into our McLean, Virginia, USA Headquarters.  We’ve adopted a flexible hybrid working model - one that creates the opportunity to work in your own way, but also provides great spaces for in-person collaboration.  

Our core in-the-office days are Tuesday to Thursday, but they aren't mandatory - you’ll be led by your team, the type of work you do, and your preferences.Many of our team have flexible working patterns so we’re open to discuss flexible working arrangements with you.
