  • Stay current on security best practices inside and outside of the software-as-a-service industry and draw on public research, reports, and analysis to drive improvements to the overall security story at Arena.
  • Research and evaluate emerging external security threats to Arena application availability and confidentiality.
  • Mentor peers in the Engineering, Quality Assurance, and Product Management teams to ensure that new features are designed and implemented with security as a first-class principle.
  • Coordinate and execute third-party penetration tests, review reports, and plan mitigating, corrective, and preventative actions.
